We are a technology company that prides itself on offering a personal service to organisations, making them aware of cyber risks and supporting them to reduce their exposure to online threats. Missing the Linq’s overarching objective is to develop solutions aimed at multi-sector organisations to improve standards of cyber security and provide a pragmatic and affordable solution to the management of risk.
The challenge is multifaceted: to prevent cyber-attacks on organisations, to raise awareness of risk and standards of cyber-security, to develop a culture of responsibility and accountability, to provide pragmatic, affordable solutions to organisations. Missing the Linq uses a novel approach which provides a technological software solution backed with additional resources which can integrate with any business to achieve cyber security through three deliverables:
- The development of innovative applications capable of risk identification, analysis, assessment and developing mitigation plans broken down to task level.
- The provision of resources – documentation, processes and sector specific information to support the use of the software and its integration into business processes.
- Access to services – personal consultancy to support companies through the software-led process of achieving cyber security and to provide additional expertise as required.
Currently organisations face a complicated market of solutions many of which are geared more towards larger companies with higher budgets and skilled IT teams. Some organisations struggle to create their own in house systems which can be time-consuming, expensive and too reliant on the skills of an individual for long term viability.
Missing the Linq specialises in cyber security with over 25 years’ experience in IT Governance, Information Security and Risk Management across many sectors. This experience has helped the company to gain a thorough understanding of the needs for organisations in relation to cyber security. Many organisations are overwhelmed by the complexity of current market solutions which are more geared towards larger organisations. Missing the Linq develop solutions which are specifically aimed at simplifying the risk management challenge for organisations. Simple to use, interfaces with business processes, encourage cultural shifts within companies and make the process of identifying, managing and mitigating risk manageable for even the smallest organisation.
