Webcast: Cyber Resilience for SMEs: Taking Control

Cyber preparedness insights from a serving police superintendent

We’re always looking for initiatives that address the issues that matter to you and, with cyber threats dominating so much of the headlines, we’re surprised that getting businesses to take that first step remains such a challenge.

The government has recognised this and set up organisations like the South West Cyber Resilience Centre to help SME’s fully understand the issues and the solutions available to them. Staffed by serving police officers, we think this national network of Cyber Resilience Centres offer you an invaluable opportunity to get impartial advise from those who see first hand the results of cyber crime.

NetUtils, a leading MSSP, share our belief that these Cyber Resilience Centres can help IT and security teams push home the cyber message and get more businesses to take that essential first step to cyber security. NetUtils also recognise there are options as to how any cyber strategy can be realised and has offered to describe the benefits and disadvantages associated with each so that you can be more informed about the right approach for you.

About the webcast

When you’re busy with the day-to-day running of your business, it’s easy to ignore the things that aren’t causing you immediate concern. On 28 July, 2022, NetUtils and the Southwest Cyber Resilience Centre teamed up to produce an insightful webinar to help organisations better prepare for cyber threats.

You’ll be aware of large-scale cyber breaches hitting the mainstream media.  If you’re unaffected you’ll most likely feel sympathy for those that are, be relieved it wasn’t you and perhaps assume (or hope) you must be doing everything right?

About the South West Cyber Resilience Centre

The South West Regional Cyber Security Centre is part of the National Cyber Resilience Centre Group (NCRCG). It's a "not-for-profit company", funded and supported by the Home Office, Policing and Ambassador partners, set up to strengthen the reach of cyber resilience across the business community.

Until recently, tackling cybercrime within a business was the domain of IT specialists, but, over the past ten years, it has increasingly become a fundamental priority for any business leader. An appropriate and effective cyber strategy needs to be integral to the operation of all organisations, sitting at the heart of how they protect their business, customers, and supply chains.

A coalition of police, government, large employers and organisations and academia, they support smaller organisations in their region and across England and Wales to make their businesses safer, more secure and more resilient.

Additionally, they're building a national talent pipeline of students to equip the next generation who will tackle cybercrime with the essential skills, knowledge and on-the-job training they need.
