OUR STORY SO FAR
BRIM was established in 2019, and brings together a group of unique and renowned industry specialists. We are one of the most highly respected cyber resilience engagement specialist companies operating from the UK with a global network across law enforcement, academia and the private sector.
Founded by Mandy Haeburn-Little, within the first week of 2020, it was announced that BRIM had been selected to deliver a network of Resilience Centres across the UK in collaboration with Police UK, supported by The Home Office following an extensive EU tender procurement process.
The model for these Centres was produced by Mandy who created a modular process to support all the necessary business implementation for each of the Centres. This modular approach ensures consistency of approach, whilst delivering core agreed standards of training to both regional University students, creating a substantial workplace ready cyber talent pipeline, working with business as well as providing training support to Police colleagues. Developed and deployed at rapid pace responsively throughout the pandemic and ;lockdown, the roll out of the UK Centres was escalated as the part of the priority UK response to COVID related cyber crime. It has since drawn interest from international law enforcement and international Government agencies as a benchmark solution for SME supply chain and customer footprint Cyber resilience.
The Centres all work very closely with IASME, the UK Government accrediting body for Cyber Essentials and promotes the IASME network of assured cyber security companies. The Centres also work very closely with the UK Protect network of cyber Police through the Regional Organised Crime Units (ROCUs).
The BRIM Leadership Team, is a hand picked portfolio of acclaimed specialists who work contractually as required. This model has proven highly effective in adaptability for evolved and expanded contractual demand from Law Enforcement throughout delivery.
We are supported by a niche operational team. Our lead consultants, whilst assembled on this project since the beginning of 2020, have previously worked in collaboration for over three years across public, private and BRIM model projects. The teamwork has proven exceptional, despite impact to programme delivery and key stakeholder consultation under lockdown restrictions. This is a highly capable, highly respected, dynamic and unparalleled team.
There is also considerable expertise within the team of working at devolved Government level.
