Since launching in July 2020, the West Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre has been working hard to build a network of Trusted Partners to join the WMCRC.
Trusted Partners is a recognised term for IASME approved Cyber Essentials certifiers who work with local businesses and charities, to help them achieve the Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus Certification.
Cyber Essentials helps you to guard against the most common cyber threats and demonstrate your commitment to cyber security which can often become a requirement when tendering for work in both public and private sectors.
Cyber Essentials is a simple but effective, Government-backed scheme that will help you to protect your organisation, whatever its size, against a whole range of the most common cyber attacks.
The West Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre Trusted Partners will work with us to:
· Identify areas of best practice and innovative cyber risk mitigation solutions.
· Maintain a consistent and common approach to the implementation of Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus certification in the West Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre.
· Identify, analyse, and raise awareness of current and emerging cyber risks so that businesses and organisations in the West Midlands are well prepared to manage them and can work safely online.
We would like to welcome our Trusted Partners who are:
- Tony Woodhouse (Solutions 4IT)
- John Douglas (Information Age)
- Abdul Khot (Amsa Infosec)
- Usman Khan (IAP Consulting)
- Phil Lynch (Nettitude)
