Cyber Security

PC Comms are one of very few IT companies in the South West to attain the Government backed Cyber Essentials Plus certification. This includes an external audit of all our business policies and processes, as well as a full vulnerability scan.
At PC Comms, we believe that cyber security should be built in as standard. That’s why all our support packages include the key features and principles for any business to meet the Cyber Essentials criteria.

Why PC Comms?

Whatever your needs, PC Comms will protect your business with our scalable and cost effective services.

Cyber Essentials

Cyber Essentials is a simple, but effective Government backed scheme that helps guard your business from cyber attacks. Whatever the size of your business, Cyber Essentials protects you from a wide range of common cyber attacks. We also offer Cyber Essentials Plus. This meets all the criteria of the standard Cyber Essentials scheme, along with a more in-depth technical verification.


We protect your business from cyber attacks

Cyber attacks come in many shapes and sizes, but the vast majority are basic and carried out by relatively unskilled individuals. They’re the digital equivalent of a thief trying your front door to see if it’s unlocked. Our expert advice is designed to prevent these attacks.

Choosing PC Comms as your IT partner will ensure you are protected from most basic cyber attacks. We believe that cyber security is the responsibility of every employee in a business. By raising awareness and recommending cyber training to all staff, we can help stop a cyber attack before it happens.


As a Cyber Essentials Plus certified IT company, PC Comms have the expertise to ensure your business meets and maintains your cyber security requirements – now and in the future.

What is cyber security?

Put simply, cyber security is the process of protecting your business’s digital systems, programs, and networks from interference. A lack of cyber security essentials remains one of the biggest threats to any business.

Almost a third of UK businesses report that they receive cyber attacks almost weekly. The cost of these attacks can amount to many thousands of pounds in lost revenue, business time and credibility. Once an attacker has gained access to a business, it can take up to  a year to identify the source of the breach.

How does cyber security benefit your business?

Having cyber security in place offers you, your staff, and your customers peace of mind. Knowing your business complies with GDPR standards is a reassurance to existing customers and those looking to trade with you for the first time.

Our cyber security also works in conjunction with our cyber protection services, offering you a thorough defence from cyber attacks.
