What actually happens?

Cybercriminals use various tools and techniques to commit fraud, obtain data (that they can sell), or take over your device, account, or other asset for their own exploits.

Cybercrime can lead to

  • the loss of data you rely on
  • the theft of your customer details
  • vital systems going offline
  • feelings of stress and panic
  • being unable to trade
  • knock-on effects for your customers
  • reputation damage and embarrassment
  • financial loss (£15, 300 average)

Investing time to learn about cyber security and implementing security is the only way to improve your resilience.

Protect your business

I have written a cyber security framework that lists and explains all the universal tasks a solo business owner needs to implement to protect their business.

This includes password strategies, a simplified 2FA plan, fraud awareness, device security, incident planning, etc.

Designed to keep you agile and working productively, the framework is zero-faff and high on time-saving, secure solutions.

One-to-one support

I offer bespoke 1:1 cyber security support for solepreneurs and small businesses.

We could cover

Client Feedback

"Penny has been amazing helping me get my online security sorted. I knew I was burying my head in the sand, but I didn't know where to start. She metaphorically held my hand the whole way through, and is still there for tech support when needed, in it's various forms. Thanks Penny!"
