Securious was established to support South West businesses with their cyber security needs, from Cyber Essentials to penetration testing to PCI DSS compliance.
For a region with such a fantastic range of disruptive businesses, there was (and still is) a surprising lack of specialists in the cyber security sector, which means local companies and organisations have been forced to look further afield for the help they require.
Naturally, this incurs substantial costs – from travel to hotels to subsistence – and it really didn’t seem right that businesses who wanted to take proactive measures to secure their systems, networks and data had no alternative to the major players that come with a high price tag.
