Cyberspace has revolutionised how many of us live and work. The internet, with its more than 3 billion users, is powering economic growth, increasing collaboration and innovation and creating jobs.
Protecting vital information assets is of critical importance to the sustainability and competitiveness of businesses today. Companies need to be on the front foot regarding their cyber preparedness. Cyber security, also known as Information Technology (IT) security, is all too often thought of as an IT issue, rather than a strategic risk management issue that it is.

Working collaboratively with your current IT support department or utilising our in-house or partner company skills we deliver an optimised solution against identified cyber risks for your business.
Why protect against cyber attacks?
Companies benefit from managing risks across their organisations - drawing effectively on senior management support, risk management policies and processes, a risk-aware culture and the assessment of risks against objectives. There are many benefits to adopting a risk management approach to cyber security, including:
Corporate decision-making improves through the high visibility of risk exposure, both for individual activities and major projects, across the whole of the organisation.
Providing a financial benefit to the organisation through the reduction of losses and improved ‘value for money’ potential.
Organisations are prepared for most eventualities, with the assurance of adequate contingency plans.
As internet connectivity brings about increased benefit globally, so does the associated risks.
The UK intelligence agency, Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) play a leading role in government and industry to help protect the UK as it is estimated that 81% of UK businesses have experienced a security breach.
The Cyber Essentials scheme has been developed by Government and industry to fulfil two functions. It provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet based threats, within the context of the Government’s 10 Steps to Cyber Security. As well as through the Assurance Framework it offers a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and others that they have taken these essential precautions.
Cyber Essentials concentrates on:
Boundary Firewalls and Internet Gateways
TXM Cyber Solutions will ensure the minimum standards are met as well as provide businesses with the on-going support to keep on top of the management of identified cyber risks.
To assist businesses, a detailed guidance for businesses titled “10 Steps to Cyber Security[CM1] ” has been published. The critical first step is to establish an information risk management regime that identifies the security risks business faces and the policy for dealing with them.
How do we work?
TXM Cyber Solutions begins with workshop engagement to identify the cyber risks faced by a business.
With an Associate Programme of accredited cyber security professionals that have direct experience in working within the cutting edge cyber environment, the cyber risk assessments are undertaken and assessed to highlight the risk mitigation and what actions are required to protect against them.
Following evaluation, we work with clients in assisting them by providing the skilled resources and project management from our Associate Programme in order to deliver real business outcomes to IT and security projects improving cyber security.
