While we’ve always been told of the threats to our personal data, but it’s easy to assume that the businesses we trust are able to protect it. Following the TalkTalk cyber-attack last year, the Government’s Cyber Governance Health Check set out to discover just how well our information is defended.
The 5th – 9th October sees IT Service Week 2015 taking place across the UK. As part of the week, which celebrates excellence in IT service, we thought we’d pick our own IT Superhero (well, two, actually…).
A highly security-focussed company, our very own MD, Steve Lysaght, provided a talk about the ethos and activities at Solvings Ltd, as well as an insight into working within the MoD and the importance of Cyber Essentials certifications.
Solvings is now G-Cloud Registered! We have been given the thumbs up to be included in the Government’s online procurement portal for public sector bodies, the Digital Marketplace (formerly CloudStore).
As part of Armed Forces Week (22 – 27 June), Solvings celebrated Reservists Day on Wednesday 24 June. The business opened its doors to local businesses and representatives of the Regular and Reserve forces for a buffet lunch and presentation.
The Solvings team escaped the office and headed for the bright lights of the capital last week to spread the message of Cyber Security and good IT management to the legal eagles of London at the Legalex conference.
Solvings is pleased to announce its latest partnership, with North Wales based IT training company ByteBack Training. Working together, we will be providing a number of business application courses, starting with Word and Excel Tricks and Tips and Microsoft Project (Foundation).
Solvings is delighted to welcome Amy Broadbent to the team; her arrival, along with her new colleague Kirsty Williams, will certainly help to lower the average age of the company! Amy will be providing some much needed impetus, from a coordination and administration perspective, within the company training division and will be reporting to Dougie Eaglesham (Practice Lead).Solvings is delighted to welcome Amy Broadbent to the team; her arrival, along with her new colleague Kirsty Williams, will certainly help to lower the average age of the company!

IT company Solvings Ltd has recently had its Corporate Covenant charter accepted by the Ministry of Defence. The Covenant requires a commitment by the company to provide advice and assistance to HM Forces personnel and their dependants, across a range of areas.
Solvings is a company with its roots anchored within a very tight-knit community. We recognise that North Wales and the North West of England provides a fertile recruiting area for HM Forces, and understand and respect the contribution that many generations of service personnel from these regions have provided at home and, especially, abroad. The sacrifices that our Troops have made, of course, has been brought into even greater focus with the centenary of the beginning of World War One earlier in the summer.
