CommSec, a leading cybersecurity provider based in Blanchardstown, has announced its membership with the Irish Small and Medium Enterprises Association (ISME), the only independent representative association for SMEs in Ireland, to help provide effective cybersecurity for SMEs.
The Voice of Irish SMEs
By joining ISME, CommSec aims to further support SMEs in Ireland by collaborating with other members of the association to address the challenges and issues facing SME owner-managers. ISME is a not-for-profit membership organisation, owned, funded, and managed by SME owner-managers. Its National Council comprises elected owner-managers from various sectors all over Ireland, making it the true independent voice of the Irish SME.
Commenting on the announcement, CEO of CommSec, David McNamara, said,
“We are delighted to become a member of ISME and look forward to working with the association to strengthen cybersecurity for SMEs in Ireland. Cybersecurity is a crucial aspect of business operations, and it is especially important for SMEs who may not have the resources to manage cybersecurity in-house. By joining forces with ISME, we can help more SMEs to protect themselves against cyber threats and safeguard their businesses against threats like phishing and ransomware.”
The Champion of SME cybersecurity
CommSec has recently introduced an award-winning new service called Business Secure, which is specifically designed to meet the needs of small and medium-sized businesses in Ireland. The company is also working closely with Cyber Ireland to roll out a new cybersecurity framework pilot scheme for 10 SMEs in the country.
CommSec’s Business Secure service offers a comprehensive package of cybersecurity solutions tailored to meet the specific needs of SMEs. This service includes a range of features, such as real-time threat monitoring, security updates and patching, and incident response, which would be normally outside the grasp of SMEs due to cost and in-house expertise.
Empowering SMEs to Fight Against Cyber Crime
CommSec supports SMEs in Ireland to manage their cybersecurity risks effectively, and its membership with ISME is a testament to this commitment. Through this partnership, the company aims to provide SMEs with the necessary resources and support to protect their businesses against cyber threats and stay ahead of the game in a rapidly evolving cybersecurity landscape.
