Doesn't time fly? It's been a whole year since the East Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre was founded to help the region combat cyber crime - and we're already helping hundreds of businesses.

But who are we and why do we exist? Who do we help and how? This blog tells you everything you need to know...

What is the EMCRC?

The East Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre (EMCRC) is set up to support and help protect businesses across the region against cyber crime. ​

By working in conjunction with local universities and the five East Midlands police forces - Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire - we possess the latest information on emerging cyber threats, criminal trends and best safeguarding practice.

This enables us to provide you with timely guidance to prepare and protect your business, staff and customers from cyber criminals. ​

EMCRC is modelled on a successful structured collaboration acclaimed by the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC). It is part of a developing network of Cyber Resilience Centres across the UK, delivered by Business Resilience
