Take Note IT on the next generation of cybersecurity

Written by Staff Writer

July 13, 2020

Is your business secured?

Being secure online refers to the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect a business data from attack and unauthorised access. How secure is your business?

Take Note is 100% level one B-BBEEE, black-women-owned and managed company with Mamela Luthuli at the helm as CEO.

Mamela is a seasoned business professional, with over 17 years’ experience in the public and private sectors. Prior to joining Take Note IT as CEO, Mamela worked for Mohlaleng Investments as the Group Business Development Director – she also worked for the Western Cape Provincial Government as a Project Manager, among other roles, and is a director in various companies.


Take Note IT has a solid infrastructure, an excellent delivery record of accomplishment and a client base that benefits immensely from its groundbreaking technology and security solutions.

When evaluating your company’s cyber security, you have to first understand the real risks your secure environment faces and only then can you start to formulate a plan to protect it.

Understanding the risks that could influence your sensitive data is an important part of any cybersecurity programme. Take a detailed look at your current security landscape and how you are set up to prevent, detect and respond to incoming cyber threats.

Security frameworks require organisations to develop an incident response plan.

Organisations that can demonstrate that the effectiveness and efficiency of their incident response plan has been validated by a third party, will meet the incident response requirements, and also be seen as being serious about their compliance commitments.

Take Note IT’s team of security experts helps businesses develop and test an incident response plan and augment their IT security team’s efforts to investigate, remediate and document a critical incident.

Generation Z

Take Note IT Security Operations, as a service model, is the next generation of managed security services, built to address the always-changing threat landscape.  The company is fully committed to the participation and training of youth, historically disadvantaged Individuals, women and SMMEs – and is passionate about CSI.
