The Cyber Resilience Centre for the South West (SWCRC) is delighted to announce the appointment of Bamboo as third Board member.
SWCRC is delighted to welcome Cheltenham-based Bamboo Technology Group as third Board member, bringing their experience of right information and communications technology to the organisation.
Bamboo Technology Group Ltd (Bamboo) is a leading provider of connectivity, data, and cyber resilient IT solutions. Centrally located in the heart of the growing cyber community in Cheltenham, the company has over 20 years’ experience working with SMEs and small corporates in highly regulated markets. The company mission is to shape and develop business futures and people’s lives by realising the full potential of ICT.
Commenting on the appointment, Superintendent and SWCRC Director Mark Moore, said "The addition of Bamboo Technology Group to the centre’s board will add further weight to our provision of essential cyber security steer and support for businesses in the South West of England. Bamboo demonstrates the kind of excellence, leadership and noteworthy track record in the IT industry that will be of great importance as we continue to strengthen the foundations the SWCRC is built on. We are truly excited for the next stages of our growth and look forward to working alongside Lorrin White and the Bamboo team.”
Lorrin White, CEO at Bamboo states “The technology landscape is constantly evolving, as is the continued threat of digital attack to operations. The Bamboo team have a thorough understanding of the digital threat and mitigation landscape and are already working with clients in Healthcare, Education, Justice and Professional Services sectors to advance their digital maturity plans.
Smaller companies are often left to fend for themselves, not always having the resources available to meet legal or regulatory compliance. Digital footprints are expanding, and the small business sector is no exception. We want to help keep our local economy on the front foot and able to confidently manage this risk. We see a huge amount of value in the free membership and education that is offered by SWCRC and want to use our own expertise to help support the growing base of micro-businesses in the Southwest. As a recognised regional business, we have the knowledge and connections to help, and we are looking forward to joining the board and directly contributing to and supporting the education and development effort.”
The SWCRC is a police-led, not-for-profit organisation which helps small and medium-sized businesses in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire, Bristol and Gloucestershire build and improve cyber resilience maturity, with accessible support and guidance available through free core membership.
Members are steered in the right direction with simple and practical resources, toolkits and regular cyber updates, with the option of affordable services for more technical security investigations.
