We are thrilled to welcome the latest addition to the national Cyber Resilience Centre network, the Cyber Resilience Centre for the East (ECRC), which launched recently serving the region of East England.
ECRC will offer a wealth of services to SMEs and supply chain businesses in East England, from training and education to vulnerability assessments. They also have a network of Trusted Partners through which businesses can access Cyber Essentials Certification, a valuable resource in the current climate.
BRIM is engaged by law enforcement in the UK to advise on establishing and developing Cyber Resilience Centres (CRCs) for business. ECRC is the eighth centre to be rolled out, with another planned in Wales to be established in the coming months.
Detective Superintendent Nick Skipworth, Director at ECRC commented:
‘Preventing crime is policing’s first principle, this is one of the main reasons I am really excited about leading on the ECRC project. We know that any system is only as strong as its weakest link, and that is why we want to help improve protection for networks and supply chains across the East, from micro businesses up to regional players and beyond. Our website is now live and we’re working hard behind the scenes to establish our Board and Advisory Group before we invite businesses across the region to join as a member.’
Cyber Resilience Centres provide relevant resources and protection for regional businesses, third sector organisations and communities in the digital era. They create and implement proven solutions using trusted and best-practice information from law enforcement and government.
