On Monday, the South East Cyber Resilience Centre joined together with senior policing, government and industry leaders for the second annual National Cyber Resilience Centre Summit held at City of London, Guildhall.
The summit, hosted by Detective Superintendent Ian Kirby, the incoming CEO of the National Cyber Resilience Centre Group (NCRCG), saw representatives from the City of London Police, Home Office, police leads from the Cyber Resilience Centre (CRC) network and National Ambassador companies share their unique experience and expertise in cyber resilience. Attendees discussed the current landscape of cybercrime and how the CRC network can best support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across the UK.
Detective Superintendent Ian Kirby said:
“Embedding cyber resilience across the UK economy isn’t something that can be achieved in silos. It requires all of us with a responsibility for tackling cybercrime to put our heads together and make sure we have a joined-up approach. The National Cyber Resilience Centre Summit is an example of how, in practice, we are ensuring this necessary alignment and creating a platform to share ideas, knowledge and insights.”
The South East Cyber Resilience Centre is one of nine police-led centres making up the CRC network. It acts as a trusted point of contact for smaller organisations to seek advice and information on how to strengthen their cyber resilience. Through NCRCG’s Cyber PATH programme – an elite talent pipeline for the next generation of cyber specialists – the centre also offers a range of affordable and high-quality services to SMEs across the region, such as Security Awareness Training, First Step Web Assessment and Security Policy Review.
