Why small businesses are joining the East Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre free Core Membership

As the Cyber Resilience Centre for the East Midlands (EMCRC), we were established to offer support and guidance on cyber resilience to businesses of all sizes across all sectors in the region. In particular, ensuring free and affordable support is available to sole traders, micro businesses (under 10 employees) and small businesses (under 50 employees) is a big area we focus on. Ultimately, these types of businesses are important in the supply chain of larger businesses, and so improved cyber resilience is really important

In particular ensuring free and affordable support for cyber resilience is made available to sole traders and micro businesses

To do this, we have developed a range of membership options to fit all needs and budget, including our free Core Membership option, open to all. We have seen many small and micro businesses stake this free membership and tell us it’s really genuinely helpful. It’s working for Sole traders too.

Our Core Membership includes government tools to support you:

Free Guidance - how organisations can protect themselves in cyberspace, including 10 steps to cyber security.

Continuity Exercise - a tool to give your organisation a ‘dummy’ run of a cyberattack, similar to testing your fire drill. Tailored for different sized organisations.

Board Toolkit - resources designed to encourage essential cyber security discussions between the Board and their technical experts.

E-news – regular, digestible updates relevant to East Midlands organisations about cyber resilience.

You can register for a Core Membership and read more about our paid membership options on our membership page.
