South West Cyber Resilience Centre (SWCRC)

Supported by the Home Office, Policing and Ambassador partners


The South West Cyber Resilience Centre is led by serving police officers, as part of a not-for-profit partnership with business and academia.

Because the organisation is funded by the Home Office, regional policing and private businesses, it does not need to make money from its members. Because of this, the SWCRC is uniquely positioned in being able to provide something to protect the small businesses and charities that don't have the resources or knowledge to protect themselves from cybercrime.

The SWCRC provides free core membership which delivers simple and comprehensible guidance on reducing cyber risks, with regular updates on the latest threats. You can also get help if you need someone to look in detail at your own systems and processes, with a uniquely-affordable offer that uses local university talent. And if you need a commercial partner, SWCRC can give you some tips which might be more helpful than google. In short, the goal is to make you safer.

The SWCRC has been operating since October 2020, and have a number of highly-credible business partners working alongside them and offering support.
