Services Introduction - Briefing on our cyber services and how these can be tailored to your individual needs.
The centre is headed up by Director Neil Jones:
Neil says: "I am excited to launch our core membership offering in the fight against cybercrime. The increase in remote working with lockdown enforced over the summer and again this month has contributed to the increase in cyber-attacks on businesses.”
"The threat is very real and can render a business inoperable as well as causing them significant reputational and financial damage. But many smaller businesses can’t afford to access cybersecurity consultancy or services.”
"The CRC has launched this core membership to support local business with a range of resources whilst also delivering affordable services to help businesses mitigate their cybersecurity risks."
