Protecting your organisation like we do ours
The UK faces over 700 DDoS attacks on average every day – that’s one every two minutes. With the potential to paralyse a healthcare provider or even bring down a government, cyber crime is big news – and nobody wants to be next to make headlines for the wrong reasons.
On our network, we block 14,000,000 unauthorised connection attempts a day. And with over 100,000 devices and 6,000 buildings to protect in 180 countries, we’ve been setting security standards worldwide for years.
Watch to find out how our Embedded Security solutions can protect your organisation the way we do ours.

Meet the team making your businesses safer
In local government and healthcare, it’s the people that really make the difference. And that’s true here at BT too. So we wanted to introduce some of the people behind our cyber security solutions.
Konstantinos, Melanie and Amy are part of a multi-talented team making sure organisations like yours are protected like ours.
Watch our videos to discover more about how our work behind the scenes is taking organisations forward. Because when we take care of your cyber security, you can focus on what really matters.
Keeping ahead of the hackers is key – so it pays to have one on your team to protect you and your people. Konstantinos tells us more about his unique specialism.
“We like to simulate the exact attacks that the real bad guys out in the wild are doing. Hacking is a constant learning experience.”
Head of Threat Intelligence
Spotting potential threats and finding the source is the responsibility of Melanie and her team. And the insight they provide into global security incidents helps protect us all.
“Our customers received intelligence around WannaCry six weeks in advance. You can start to put plans in place before it hits you.”
Head of Incident Response
Because launching a cyber attack is relatively easy, it’s critical to have far-reaching protection. Amy highlights the help we’ve given to the NHS, and our strength and depth.
“The bad guys step up their game. Which means me need to move fast to keep up – and actually get out ahead in front of them.”

The Local Government Association has highlighted the importance of more funding for local councils to fight cyber attacks.
And with digital transformation a top priority for the public sector, there’s never been a better time to talk seriously about security.
