Weston-based cyber security firm Consult MB Ltd, is offering a network perimeter vulnerability scan to identify flaws or weaknesses in an organisation’s internet security.

Company founder, Mike Brett, said: “In these uncertain times we want to make sure organisations are safe from external cyber threats. An external vulnerability scan is a first basic step in checking cyber defences.”

Consult MB is a licensed certification body for the National Cyber Security Centre’s Cyber Essentials scheme. It shows companies how to protect themselves against low-level commodity threat.
