COVID-19 Update.

Written by

Aristi has made preparations to protect our operations from disruptions caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Our aim as always is to provide an excellent service to our customers, and we will continue to do so through this uncertain time. We will be monitoring the situation closely and following the latest government advice with regards to travel and meetings.

Our business is resilient, and we will continue to support you.
Aristi’s business has a high degree of resilience built into its operations and our business continuity plans are well rehearsed. All members of our team have the necessary equipment to enable them to work from home. Our key business services suppliers also have well tested business continuity plans.
In order to keep our staff and customers safe whilst maintaining service delivery, we have taken the following precautions:

  • Replace external face to face meetings with audio/video conferencing where possible.
  • Conduct penetration testing / IT Health Checks remotely over VPN technology where possible. We have set up a secure remote testing facility which allows us to continue to deliver our services without disruption.

If you have projects scheduled with us and are concerned about the delivery, please contact us and we will work with you to ensure your needs are met.

Keep Safe. Keep Secure.

As the reliance on IT and home working increases during this period, please remember these key steps:

  • Keep your systems up to date and patched to reduce the risk of vulnerabilities being exploited.
  • Ensure you have up to date antivirus software installed.
  • Ensure staff know how to protect their devices whilst working remotely, including removable media devices (e.g. USB memory sticks) and smartphones. To reduce the risk of data loss, only allow devices provided by the organisation to be used and encrypt removable media if it needs to be used. If possible, disable USB use.
  • Ensure remote working uses a Virtual Private Network (VPN) and Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) to protect the confidentiality of your information.
  • Make sure user devices encrypt data whist at rest to protect against device theft.
  • Where possible, use mobile device management software to enforce strong passwords, MFA and device encryption.
  • Make sure staff know how to report problems with IT, particularly if they relate to a security breach.
  • Ensure staff know how to protect against phishing emails.
  • Test your security breach response and business continuity plans and ensure all key stakeholders know what to do.

Please contact us on 0121 222 5630 or info@aristi.co.uk if you need further advice.


Everyone at Aristi is working extremely hard to ensure we continue to provide you with the level of service and quality you expect from us. This is an unprecedented global incident and we will continue to work in partnership with you during this time.
