Hedgehog launches new cyber security service

Hedgehog Security has launched a new subscription service that ensures gambling operators, suppliers, regulators and affiliates are protected from cyber security threats.

Secure has been built with the business owner and not the IT manager in mind, providing a base level of cyber security protection without fuss so that business owners can focus on what they do best, which is running their business day to day.

There are two levels of protection available – Base and Plus Level – providing protection to the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus requirements respectively. The former covers public facing services and the latter internal systems as well.

Secure runs on a 12 months subscription model and includes the following:

Secure Base Level

  • Monthly vulnerability scanning of public facing systems
  • Six-monthly vulnerability scanning of your internal systems
  • 12 hours of engineering time to identify and fix vulnerabilities
  • 12 hours of CISO time to perform audits and review processes
  • UK Government Cyber Essentials certification audit on or after month four

  • Monthly vulnerability scanning of public facing systems
  • Monthly internal vulnerability scanning
  • 24 hours of engineering time to identify and fix vulnerabilities
  • 24 hours of CISO time to perform audits and review processes
  • Guaranteed Cyber Essentials Plus certification
  • £20k of cyber liability insurance

Secure can be used by businesses of all shapes and sizes but is particularly useful for smaller organisations as Hedgehog Security takes over day to day management, finding any issues and fixing them to ensure businesses are as protected as can be at all times.

The subscription model, and the two levels of protection, provide an affordable solution for businesses, with the option to either protect themselves at the Base Level or add another layer of cyber security armour with the Plus Level.

Peter Bassill, CEO of Hedgehog Security, said: “Cyber security should be a key consideration for all organisations operating in the online gambling sector but more often than not, especially in smaller businesses, it is misunderstood and overlooked.

“With Secure  we have come up with a service and a solution that allows businesses to ensure they are as protected as can be without it distracting from the day to day running of the business. We take care of everything so they can focus on doing what they do best.”
