Cyber Solutions

Cybersecurity has never been more mission-critical to businesses. The estimated financial loss from cyber attacks increases year-on-year. While cyber attacks can’t always be prevented, particularly as your organisation grows in size and becomes more known to hackers across the globe, their success in attacking your systems can be prevented. 

Symposium has a deck of cyber solutions that will ensure your company stays safe from cyber attacks and can freely focus on what actually matters – providing services to your customers and growing the business.

We take a proactive approach to managing your threat detection. Not only are we equipped to handle cyber attacks that vary in sophistication, but we can also hunt down issues in your security and threats before they become fully-fledged cyber attacks. 

By combining a cyber Security Operations Center (SOC) with intelligent AI-driven Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) threat detection, our cybersecurity solutions can identify and eliminate cyber threats. If you’ve been looking to maximise risk reduction, you are in the right place. 

Our SOC is manned by real analysts, so you don’t have to worry about AI being in charge of your security – it is always a trained security analyst manning your account. 

Whenever threats do arise, you’ll receive easy-to-understand ticket alerts. Don’t worry about being a cybersecurity expert, we always make sure that the ticket alerts can be understood by members of your team. That way, you know what’s going on at all times. 

Here’s some of the benefits you can expect from our Managed Threat Detection service:

Essentially, our Managed Threat Detection service covers three areas to ensure that all bases of your company’s security is being covered while being kept in the loop.

Reach your full potential

We empower organisations to reach their full potential through innovative cloud computing solutions. Get in touch if you’re looking for meaningful results that drive business success.

Cyber Essentials Enablement

As certificate-holders in both the Cyber Essentials Basic and Cyber Essentials Plus areas, we can offer you a solution that covers the main areas of security your business will need.

Malware Protection

We recommend and implement state-of-the-art antivirus and anti-malware solutions that detect, quarantine, and eliminate threats. Our recommended software regularly updates to ensure it can recognise and counter the latest strains of malware.


Our advanced firewalls effectively control incoming and outgoing network traffic, establishing a barrier between a trusted and untrusted network. Firewalls are meticulously configured to protect internal networks from threats originating outside the organisation.

Patch Management

We maintain an effective patch management process to keep all software and operating systems up-to-date. This plugs security holes that could be exploited by malware.

User Access Control

Your users need access to the stack of platforms and apps your business uses in its digital environment. But that doesn’t mean they need access to everything. We’ll help set up roles and access control so that your team members only have access to the software they need to perform their intended job roles. We provide rigorous user access control mechanisms that only allow necessary access for each user. This reduces potential entry points for malware and restricts malware movement within networks.

Continuous Monitoring and Response

Our systems monitor your networks 24/7, detecting and responding to any suspicious activity. This ensures threats are identified and dealt with as swiftly as possible.

Staff Training

Beyond our technical measures, we understand that people can be a weak link in cybersecurity. Therefore, we offer comprehensive training for staff to recognize potential malware threats such as phishing emails and malicious attachments.






Vulnerability Assessment

Perhaps you’re confident in your security and just want an outsourced look at what could be improved? In which case we can offer you a vulnerability assessment. In this, we would asses your current digital environment and search for holes or weak points. 

If there is anything your current security team have missed, we’d find it. As part of our own cyber solutions we can offer ongoing vulnerability assessments to make sure your business is kept safe in perpetuity.
