VCG helps organisations shape their next technology and IT services roadmap, with a great focus on protecting people, data and devices in the digital economy.

According to official statistics from the UK Government’s Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2021, Four in ten businesses (39%) and a quarter of charities (26%) report having cyber security breaches or attacks in the last 12 months. Like previous years, this is higher among medium business (65%), large businesses (64%) and high-income charities (51%) – but no size of organisation is immune.

Businesses of all sizes need to be able to successfully respond to and recover from cyber security threats which relies upon being prepared, having the resources to deal with those threats and the skills and capabilities to ensure that a growing range of obstacles can be overcome.

‘‘Most businesses don’t perceive cyber-attacks as a major risk, believing that only larger companies are targeted’’

Cyber security threats have been exacerbated by the need to work from home and the desire for organisations to enable an increasingly remote workforce. The speed of change has been rapid, and this has undoubtedly left many organisations reverse engineering their security. Working from anywhere on multiple devices provides the flexibility that most want to do their job, but security is too often an after-thought. The vast array of devices – both personal and corporate, presents a huge security risk.

Managing distributed devices and locations

As online threats and malware become more sophisticated, hybrid working and higher exposure to risks across distributed devices and locations are also increasing in complexity and requirements for IT departments, which can put a strain on resources and critical infrastructure. Working in partnership to bring together people, data and devices provides a single approach to the design and evolution of cyber security strategy for many fast-growing companies.

Evolving and unifying security operations

Our goal at VCG is to help organisations succeed in the digital economy by creating a safe working environment for every user on every device, from any location. Through the optimisation of security strategies and IT investments, we enable organisations to understand the areas of improvement, create a single end-to-end roadmap of technology and cyber security services, and deliver continuous improvement and capabilities across the workforce, workplace and workload environments.

‘’Our service model brings cybersecurity at the core of our portfolio. We help businesses unify their plans and strategy across people, devices and locations in a single approach: consult, design and evolve cyber security for the organisations we work with.’’ says Andy Peters-Smith, CEO of VCG.
