Business group joins the fight against the cyber criminals

JOIN the fight against the increase in cyber crime. That is the message to organisations across Northamptonshire from a business membership group based in the county.

NNBN is encouraging companies, charities and other organisations to become more resilient online by supporting the East Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre, a police-led partnership which safeguards businesses online and operates across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire.

Cyber attacks against businesses in Northamptonshire are on the increase. The EMCRC was launched in 2020 and is led by regional police officers working in partnership with universities and businesses with one aim: To support micro and SME organisations to access the help and services they need to become more resilient to online crime.

NNBN director Simon Cox pictured right called on organisations across Northamptonshire to visit the EMCRC website in order to find out more about how  business leaders can take steps to become more resilient against the cyber criminals.

“It is key that we, as an active Membership organisation in Northamptonshire, support this initiative to help signpost local businesses to key information and I would urge interested parties to explore the free resources on the EMCRC website and sign up for their regular updates,” Mr Cox said.

Sign up for information packs and free newsletter and employers are kept up to date with key initiatives and information from across the East Midlands.

EMCRC managing director Detective Inspector Colin Ellis said: “I am really pleased NNBN are looking out for their members by highlighting our services. It does not matter what industry or sector you are in, taking online security seriously is vital not just for your own business but the everyone else’s too.

“We are all interconnected online in some way, so by better protecting yourself and your own business you are also helping to protect our national infrastructure, our public services, our schools and our charities. The cyber resilience centre is here for SME organisations to help them navigate this problem offering free guidance and support to keep things affordable.
