Computer security is more important today than it has ever been
All company directors and owners have a responsibility under the Data Protection Act and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) laws to protect any personally identifiable information that they may hold, whether that be for staff, suppliers, customers, email subscribers etc.
The Information Commissioners Office has strong powers to enforce theses laws, and does so. In 2020 the ICO fined Cathay Pacific Airways £500,000 for failing to protect the security of its customers’ personal data. They have also fined British Airways £20m after a data breach revealed information on over 400,000 customers and Marriott Hotels were fined £18.4 for a data breach that they failed to report in a timely manner.
Network Midlands can work with you to keep you from falling foul of the law. We can help you develop a Business Continuity Plan (sometimes called a disaster recovery plan) to keep your business working during and after a natural or man made interruption to your business process.
We also offer a secure cloud backup service to keep your data safe, a data recovery service for those times when you lose data or the back-up has failed and a secure data destruction service so that, when you dispose of your old computers, all your company confidential information is completely destroyed.
More and more we hear of organisations’ computer networks and websites being hacked. Preventing this is a specialist area known as cybersecurity

I had the pleasure of attending a workshop, Cybercrime- what can go wrong? as part of the #LBF (Leicester Business Festival) . I found the course to be relaxed yet informative, with Trevor’s warm and friendly style, I was able to participate without any inhibition. His knowledge has proved valuable, allowing a proactive and productive implementation of new processes in the work place.
Trevor is concise, professional and extremely knowledgeable in all of his subjects. He recently gave a very interesting and thought provoking talk to the Federation of Small Business Virtual Networking group that I host here in Leicester, on the subject of Cyber crime. It stimulated many questions and much discussion, all of which made for a very positive meeting.
Trevor hosts all my important information on a cloud storage system for me. If there’s a problem, which there was at my end a couple of months ago, the system flags this up and then I get a call from Trevor. He sorted it out very quickly which was a relief for me! His knowledge of cybersecurity is amazing too, if a little scary………..
Trevor is an expert when it comes to cybersecurity. Over the years, Trevor has given sound advice to help me protect my website from spam-bots and other security threats. If you’re looking to protect your IT systems and your website, I highly recommend speaking to Trevor.
I’ve been to 2 of Trevor’s seminars/lectures recently and both were brilliant; engaging, informative and highly worthwhile, I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to learn more about Cybersecurity.
