PROTECTING SOUTH WEST BUSINESS FROM
We are a policing-led, not-for-profit partnership. We are Home Office supported, here solely to help South West business and charities protect themselves from cyber crime.
We give you the right guidance to get safer, and every month we’ll update you with the latest things to look out for. Plain English, and free of charge. Because making you safer is what we’re here for.
We can probe your defences, and show you how to improve them. Using top talent from local universities, we do this in a uniquely affordable way: we're here for those with limited resources.
Membership of our centre will make you one of over 500 South West businesses and charities already benefitting from our support. If you think cyber resilience is too expensive or complicated, try us.
DEVELOPING THE CYBER RESILIENCE OF SOUTH WEST BUSINESS
We’re a police-led team, here to look after the small businesses and charities that don’t have the resources or knowledge to protect themselves. The fact is, the average cost of a cyber attack is over £8,000, and two in five of you spot attempted breaches each year.
So we give you the guidance you need, and the support to implement it, and every month we’ll update you with the latest scams to avoid. And we’re free of charge, thanks to our public funding and our private sector sponsors. We never need to make money from you.
But if you do want someone to review your own systems and processes, or to provide bespoke training, we can do this very inexpensively using top talent from regional universities. Or, if you need a commercial provider to get you on the road to cyber resilience, we can direct you to recognised local providers.
We’re here to help.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
We approached the Cyber Resilience Centre for the South West when we wanted to understand more about how we could increase our cyber resilience. Mark and his team took the time to meet with us several times, at no cost to ourselves, to talk through our requirements and answer many questions about how we could increase our security. The information provided was invaluable in helping us to assess responses and appoint a provider who we trust will be strong in this area. We can’t recommend their services enough, I would encourage anyone who is not quite sure where to start to get in touch and see how the Cyber Resilience Centre for the South West can help!"
