As part of the Critical National Infrastructure (CNI), the transport and logistics sector is one of the UK's most important industries.

Supply chains at the heart of the nation's economy rely on this industry, and in recent years there has been a shift towards digitising the transport and logistics sector.

This has many obvious positives, but without adequate protection against cyber attacks, companies will leave themselves vulnerable, and cyber criminals will take advantage. There is usually a weakness somewhere in the supply chain, which can be the key to accessing a wealth of sensitive information.

Cyber criminals know this. They know that it's much easier to target the transport and logistics sector than it is to crack into a bank's highly protected system, but the consequences could be equally severe, causing major disruption to the economy and the functioning of the country.

We believe in taking simple steps to protect your data and your reputation from disaster. Setting strong user access controls to monitor network access, performing regular backups to our servers, and keeping software up-to-date are just three of the precautions which must be considered.

For businesses in this sector, cyber security cannot just be an afterthought - it must be an integral part of company culture. Digital Armour can change your mindset to help you achieve and retain crucial cyber security standards, such as Cyber Essentials.

A broad strokes approach is not enough by itself, so we also offer security awareness training which focuses on the weaknesses of individuals and turns them into strengths, helping each employee to become a key cog in the new company culture.

Information Assurance Services for Transport and Logistics

  • Security awareness training: Social engineering tactics like phishing and ransomware are commonly used to try and exploit human error in industries such as this one, so we provide staff training to make them aware of how to spot the danger signs and what to do about them.
  • GDPR: With so much sensitive data changing hands in this industry, it is imperative that businesses respect data protection regulations. We can help you to comply with GDPR, putting your mind - and your customers' minds - at rest.
  • Cyber Essentials: Businesses within the supply chains of Critical National Infrastructure are providing a government service, so they must attain Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials PLUS. We can help you to achieve either, depending on your business needs.
  • ISO 27001: For an additional boost to information assurance, we can help your business adhere to the ISO 27001 standard. It is not usually mandatory, but proves that your organisation is carrying out best practice.

With so many partners involved in this industry, there is usually an Achilles heel; a weakness waiting to be exploited.
