Make cyber security a priority for your business.

Our expert team have the capability to provide specialist support for all your cyber security requirements.

Cyber security is a threat to businesses.

We can help you protect your business.

In collaboration with Affinitas Global, our specialist team are well placed to advise on all your business's cyber security measures. Together we are able to prepare business owners and directors to effectively plan for, respond to and mitigate cyber incidents.

Employment Law

Cyber security is a vital part of any business and preparation is key. FBC Manby Bowdler can offer a range of cyber solutions to protect the security of your business and support for when cyber incidents occur.



These services include:

Cyber Security Tools and Applications

Working with a number of global brands (i.e. Microsoft, Symantec etc.) as well as a list of trusted providers whose products can offer an additional line of defense for your data

Digital Forensic Investigations

In the event of being involved in a criminal or corporate digital investigation, we can help to prepare evidence bundles in accordance with UK law.

Compromise Assessments

Providing a snapshot overview of a company network in order to determine any areas which may be or have already been compromised. This provides a more thorough result which can detect a compromise that may have already taken place, rather than an annual penetration test which will only show if a network can be compromised. Particularly vital in the event of an acquisition or merger, where the network will become connected to the purchaser's domain.

Cyber Incident Management & Response Consulting

Various levels of retained incident response services, including retained contracts. A year-long programme which combines IR protection with a consulting process designed to enhance a business's internal incident management capability, making it effective at reactive incident management. These services can be extended to allow a business to become proactive in detecting and preventing potential incidents more promptly through the adoption of threat analytics and detect & respond tools and strategies.

Cyber Incident Response

A full technical cyber incident response service using advanced incident management and investigation techniques in areas such as Network Investigation.

Network/Data Security

Through partnership with Microsoft we can offer an in-depth security configuration assessment of the Microsoft365 (formerly O365) cloud environment and offer a range of general cyber security consulting services based around defensive security.


A full e-discovery including collection, processing, reviewing and evidence hosting via the Relativity platform.

Mr B (TED Group)


Stuart Rea handled our unusual and complex matter with professionalism.  He understood what we wanted to achieve and gave us very clear guidance on our legal position - even though we did not necessarily want to hear the advice it was essential to our charity understanding our legal position and therefore making lawful decisions.  He also worked to the very tight timescales that we needed.

Mr S


Thank you to David Preece for all his work and help throughout the process, it made an initially daunting prospect so much simpler and more straightforward, I can't tell you how helpful that was for us. David was consistently efficient and prompt but also realistic and pragmatic about the process allowing us to pick our way through and find a reasonable approach to it all that worked for us. Thank you again for all your help, David.

I used FBCMB for a business/commercial and found them to be helpful, professional and informative.  Their costs were as quoted.  I would recommend them and if I need their services in the future I would certainly use them again.

David Preece gave us timely and relevant advice on a share purchase agreement:  we needed the key risks and implications explaining to us and he did that in a clear and direct way.  The service was good quality and good value.  Would definitely use the firm again.
