Cyber Essentials and IASME for Accountancy Firms

We are an accredited Government provider of Cyber Essentials training. Cyber Essentials is a Government standard that is designed to help protect the valuable data your business holds and the business itself. If you have public sector or local authority contracts it is mandatory to have a Cyber Essentials certification. However, it is an extremely valuable process that will help protect your accountancy business against cyber attacks. It also shows prospective clients you are serious about cyber safety. We are also an approved IASME Assurance partner and can offer this higher level of cyber security training.

Specialist IT Support Just for Accountants

We offer full IT support specifically for accountants. We understand the requirements an accountancy practice has when it comes to IT so you will get the service you need without having to explain the landscape to us. Because we understand accountancy software and the range of IT requirements we can get to work immediately and seamlessly integrate into your existing processes, saving you time and money whilst adhering to all the protocols and legal requirements of the industry.

We work with MGI Midgley Snelling LLP, chartered accountants based in Weybridge, supporting their essential IT infrastructure, software and systems. In addition, we’ve also developed and implemented a robust disaster recovery plan and managed several system upgrades. Similarly, we worked with Crick Heitman in London to secure their data, as well as devise and define a protocol for restoration should systems ever be compromised.

Cyber Security For Accountants

With access to confidential information, accountancy firms face the challenge of finding storage solutions that keep files protected whilst being accessible to those who require them. Pro Drive IT work with accountants, law firms, financial services, and many other businesses where data protection is of crucial importance. Experts in a wide range of cyber security solutions, we can assess your current infrastructure and devise solutions to suit your accountancy practice’s unique requirements.

Not only are we highly experienced in installing cyber security systems, but we also provide a wrap-around service that encompasses full risk assessment and strategy building. This usually includes regular testing and ongoing maintenance of your cyber security protection to ensure that you remain compliant and fully protected.

IT Infrastructure for Accountancy Firms

Being heavily dependent on fast, reliable, and robust IT systems, accountancy firms are moving from being reliant on IT infrastructure, to being driven by it. With the right systems in place, technology can not only support your accountancy firm but create opportunities and increase productivity.

For example, cloud services may enable you to work on the go, accessing files remotely. Adopting software that allows you to collaborate on projects with colleagues and clients, regardless of location, can also extend capabilities and help to achieve goals more efficiently. Video and phone conferencing technologies can enable you to connect with clients on a more regular basis and even share files in real-time.

These are just some of the innovative ways in which technology can make your accountancy firm more adaptable, responsive, and connected. Without disruption to your daily business, Pro Drive IT can conduct a full audit of your current IT infrastructure and capabilities. We will then make informed recommendations for ways in which we might strengthen your systems and employ solutions able to drive your business forward.

We offer expert advice and IT support on a day-to-day basis to ensure your IT infrastructure is fully functional and protected. In addition, we can work alongside you to develop your IT strategy and future-proof your accountancy firm.
