Helping your people to thrive

Leading with Security and Compliance

Our approach to - and discipline with - IT security directly impacts your security and reputation. Choosing who to work with for IT & Security should be your number one entry on your risk register.

Grant McGregor has been an IASME Gold Accredited Cyber Essentials (CE) Certification body since 2016 and we take our own security as seriously as we do for our clients. As a very early adopter of the CE scheme, we have a long-standing relationship with IASME & NCSC and have helped nearly 100 different organisations achieve the Cyber Essentials certification.

We are Cyber Essentials Plus certified (externally audited, that means we’ve been rigorously verified) and IASME Gold Audited accredited  (also rigorously, externally audited) for our standards & security policies, processes, procedures, and practice.

Focused Teams

Our company has distinct and separate teams for Business As Usual IT Support, Professional/Technical Services, Consultancy and Cyber Services. So, you can be assured that whoever you are dealing with, will be 100% focussed on the task they’re working on - not trying to handle a support call whilst installing a firewall or sending invoice.

We have around 20 full-time employees with operations & admin staff but most are technical staff - half of whom are dedicated to the Helpdesk/Business As Usual IT Support team.

Track Record of Trust

Our track record is one of trust right through our supply chains. We partner with trusted vendors that allow us to deliver world class services and to make sure that your infrastructure Is proactively protected, 24x7x365.

Finally, we’re not afraid to challenge and educate - we don’t stop at just supporting and maintaining your systems. We work with your team to future-proof your organisation to develop your IT in line with your changing needs and to educate you on the latest IT opportunities and threats.

I am more than happy to recommend Grant McGregor ... since they have taken control of IT systems we have had far, far less issues and downtime and any issues that there have been, are dealt with quickly and professionally!
