BRIM is working to establish a network of 10 Cyber Resilience Centres across the UK, working with Policing to protect businesses and communities and offer security and guidance on cyber security issues. Based on the highly successful model of the Scottish Business Resilience Centre, built and managed for nine years by BRIM CEO, Mandy Haeburn-Little, the centres are a unique and strong partnership between the private sector, academia and policing. Working with students at leading universities, our Ethical Hackers programme provides a stream of highly talented students, ready for high calibre careers in the cyber security industry.
The aim of BRIM CRCs is to provide businesses with resources that will help them stay on top of cyber threats and feel confident and in control of their company’s cyber security. To do this, we work with partners including IASME, regional Police organised crime units and the National Cyber Security Centre, as well as prominent business leaders and UK universities, to deliver a fully rounded solution for our members.
Here, Mandy talks to the Influential Visions Podcast about building the CRC network, how ethical hacking can help businesses become more secure, and the challenges facing cyber policing in the time of COVID-19.
