As a sneak peak, check out Alison’s answer to why the WMCRC was established and who can benefit from it.

“The aim of the Resilience Centre is to protect businesses of all sizes from the threat of cybercrime. So that's through education, advice, but also through the provision of services.
The WMCRC provides businesses but particularly focuses on micro businesses and SMEs with affordable solutions to access cybersecurity. But not only that, we also raise awareness and also increased knowledge in this area. The WMCRC was set up as a not-for-profit company to harness the very best of partnership working between law enforcement, the private sector, the public sector, third sector and also the academic sector.”
