The South West Cyber Resilience Centre, has now been up and running for around four months, led by serving police officers and with a mission to provide as much free protection as possible for local businesses and charities, to stop them falling victim to online criminals.

Supporting their work is a group of business experts, from the South West Business Council, NFU, local enterprise partnerships, and cyber networks from across the region. The group has proposed that early focus for the centre should be on the protection of the tourism sector and agri-food, with a shift later in the year towards health and social care, retail, and defence. It’s a long and challenging to-do list but the key offer from the centre is a simple one: providing simple, clear and accessible guidance to those who ask, so that they can reduce their risk for nothing. There will be a number of webinars coming up which all are welcome to join, to hear from experts at first hand about how to get safer.

The centre also has great links with existing police resources, so that if you need free training or awareness for your staff, they can provide you with the right points of contact and detail of what’s going on. Last year 46% of businesses were subject of a cyber crime attack, and the average cost to a small business which lost money was over £3,100: quite apart from the time and reputational damage that they may have lost. You wouldn’t leave your business’s front door open, and in the same way, you need to make sure that you’ve put a digital doorlock on your important information. It’s simple to do, and the South West CRC can show you how.
