Derive Logic helping to promote Cyber Security best practice

Nearly half of all businesses (46%) reported a cyber breach or attack in the past 12 months (Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2017, Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport), so the need to tackle cybercrime has never been greater.   Derive Logic takes its security extremely seriously and is already accredited with the Cyber Essentials certification, which is a recognised cyber security standard which is accepted by both Government and industry.  Cybercrime undermines confidence in our communications technology and in our ability to do business and it costs UK businesses billions every year. For the latest advice on best practice to protect your business, we recommend visiting the Cyber Aware website for more information.
