On this episode of ScaleUp Radio I speak with Vanessa Eyles.
Now, as you’ll hear, this is a slightly different conversation to the ones that we normally have.
Instead of being a business owner, Vanessa is Detective Superintendent in West Midlands Police, and she has direct responsibility for the Cyber Resilience Centre for the West Midlands, which has been set up to help businesses become cyber safe.
Cyber Security is considered one of the biggest threats to modern businesses, and Vanessa - along with the CRC - is working to educate and help to protect businesses.
As you’ll hear, we talk about the formation of the centre, the specific aims and how businesses across the region can take advantage, and the ‘business model’ of this not-for-profit.
There are also some excellent practical points that can help you protect your business from cyber attacks. The mistake is thinking that you aren’t big enough to be a target!
If you are a small business owner, or work for a small business, then this is a vital episode for you. Obviously, Vanessa works in the West Midlands - but there are Cyber Resilience Centre’s across the UK.
