Identify, prioritise, and remediate threats with our cybersecurity risk assessments for SMEs
GET A BIG-PICTURE SNAPSHOT OF YOUR CURRENT CYBER RISK EXPOSURE
Are you certain that all your hidden security gaps have been exposed?
Cybersecurity threats come in all shapes and sizes and pose serious risks to businesses, large and small. For small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), it is no longer adequate to simply install security software on your company devices and leave it there. If you are serious about protecting your customer data and your reputation, it is vital to have a clear picture of all threats and vulnerabilities.
To gain this clear picture of your cyber risk exposure, one of the most pragmatic steps you can take is to invest in a cybersecurity risk assessment. At help4IT, we understand that cybersecurity is a daunting subject for many people, particularly smaller businesses that do not have the internal resources to focus on it. As such, we offer a no-jargon, free initial assessment to help you get to grips with the key issues affecting your business.
To take advantage of a free consultation with us, simply get in touch using our contact form, email or call us. A friendly member of our support team will happily explain to you what is involved in the process and how we can initiate some initial tests.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a cybersecurity risk assessment?
A cybersecurity risk assessment is a process of identifying, analysing, and evaluating potential risks and vulnerabilities around an organisation’s information systems and data. It involves identifying potential threats, assessing the likelihood of those threats occurring, and evaluating the potential impact of those threats on the organisation’s assets, such as its data, networks, and applications.
What is involved in the risk assessment?
The assessment involves asset identification (such as hardware, software, and data), threat identification (specifically the threats to assets), vulnerability identification such as weaknesses within the network, risk analysis, as well as risk mitigation and monitoring strategies.
What is the end goal of the risk assessment?
The goal of the assessment is to help the organisation identify, prioritise, and remediate cybersecurity risks. This process can help to improve the overall cybersecurity posture, reduce the likelihood of data breaches and cyberattacks, and ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical information assets.
Do small businesses need a risk assessment?
Yes, absolutely. According to the National Cyber Security Alliance, 60% of SMEs go out of business within 6 months of a cyberattack. Cyberattacks are potentially ruinous for businesses of all sizes and it is therefore vital to ensure that you take all the steps you can to mitigate the risk.
