Softcat launch strategy guide to help businesses prioritise actions, develop a plan, and secure the supply chain

As cyber attacks intensify and the cyber threats continue to refine and evolve, one of the UK’s leading IT solution and services providers, Softcat, has developed a guide that arrives at a time when more businesses are looking for confidence and solutions to the cyber security challenges they face.

Cyber security expert Softcat has developed this guide by breaking down the vital elements needed to build a successful IT security strategy with comprehensive insights from in-house industry specialists.

With an unusual, yet refreshingly positive approach to cyber security, Head of Cyber Security Services at Softcat, Matthew Helling, opens the guide by explaining: “Almost every report, paper or guide based on the issue of cyber security approaches the subject negatively. It’s all about what you’re not doing right.”

He elaborates further by saying: “While there are certainly things to be cautious about, at Softcat we’re more interested in focusing on what our customers are already doing well and advising on how they build on this.”

Businesses today are interested in focusing what ‘good’ looks like, instead of what’s ‘bad’. With that in mind, the guide identifies how to develop proactive strategies for a cyber defence, based on a reasonable and practical perspective that includes:

  • Prioritising cyber security actions – defining and focusing on what’s most important to improve information and computer security
  • Developing a tangible plan – including how to optimise existing systems, bridge skills gaps and attain required resources
  • Securing the supply chain – understanding every customer and supplier in the chain, and working with them to tighten up data sharing
