In 1815, the Duke of Wellington observed that the Battle of Waterloo had been won on the playing fields of Eton. Today, there’s a war being waged every hour of every day on computer screens. And Nexor is on the front line.
Hackers, spies, criminals, foreign Governments, anarchists, rival businesses… it is estimated that Britain is being targeted by over 1,000 cyber attacks every hour and those attacks are being instigated by skilled and ruthless individuals, gangs and organisations.
Francis Maude, Minister for the Cabinet Office and Paymaster General, was recently quoted as saying, “Cyber attacks are one of the top four threats to our national security. It’s a race to build sufficient cyber defences to match the growing volume and dependence of our online economic, security and social interests.” People are disabling systems, disrupting infrastructure, penetrating Government networks and stealing secrets, money, identities and intellectual property while you’re reading this.
NEXOR’s ability to implement controls, using our Secure Information Exchange Architecture to enable only information flows that conform to business expectation, is crucially important. We have over 25 years’ experience of doing this for military and intelligence agencies throughout the world.
We work closely with our clients in order to understand exactly what is required of their business processes and then provide back–up in ongoing security policies. Working with our clients to manage cyber security risks and to avoid operational disruption, reputation damage, safety failure and regulatory fines; we also keep a constant eye on the bottom line in order to reduce operational and security costs and provide ongoing support via our robust quality standards.
