East Midlands Chamber partners with EMCRC to increase Cyber resilience for SMEs

Staying informed of how evolving challenges are impacting SMEs is imperative, especially at this time of global crisis. That’s why we’ve partnered up with the East Midlands Chamber to provide extra support to businesses in the region, who are focused on improving their risk management from cyber threat.

Every member of East Midlands Chamber of Commerce will be issued with access to Core Membership of East Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre (EMCRC) to provide them with straightforward links to NCSC, the cyber division of GCHQ, the government’s authority on trusted guidance, and access to skills development and affordable services through our Policing led Centre, part of a national network of cyber resilience centres.

The East Midlands Chamber is the leading business representation organisation in the East Midlands region, with a membership of over 4,300 businesses, from small start-ups to global organisations. Their aim is to support businesses of all sizes across five key focus areas: Supporting Growth, Connecting You, Developing Skills, Helping you Influence and Enabling International Trade.

The Chamber is continuing to provide guidance to their members during lockdown through a series of online resources, including a wide variety of webinars and online training courses.

Scott Knowles, Chief Executive of East Midlands Chamber, said:

“Cyber security is an essential consideration for businesses of all sizes. The threat of cyber-attack grows every day and corresponds exactly with the dependence on technology within most organisations. The East Midlands Cyber Security Resilience Centre is a welcome new initiative which will help even more businesses across the region to get to grips with cyber security and take the steps they need to protect themselves.”

As the EMCRC was established to provide support for companies of all sizes with developing their cybersecurity risk management, we want to ensure that all our partners are able to access resources that will help them improve and protect their business, especially at this time.
