The North West Regional Organised Crime Unit are working in partnership with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and would like to invite representatives from small to medium businesses (made up of roughly 100 - 250 people) to a bespoke briefing session. This will take place on Monday 12th November at the Preston Marriott Hotel, Garstang Road, Preston, PR3 5JB between 11:00hrs and 14:00hrs. A light buffet lunch will also be provided.

The aim of the session will be a demonstration of a brand new exercising product which has been commissioned by the NCSC initially for the SME community and Local Government with a view to later scaling for other sectors who will also benefit. The product is a complete package of exercise advice, scenarios and supporting material that will provide your organisation with everything it needs to run and facilitate exercises from start to finish. It can also be used by non-cyber specialist staff.

The NCSC has built this product to address a gap in the SME field, they recognise that “Exercising” is one of the most powerful approaches that a company can undertake to gauge it’s resilience to be able to manage cyber-attacks and to raise cyber maturity. To date, the ability for SMEs to test themselves has often been difficult due to costs or complexity. This tool addresses those concerns and will be provided to you on the day.

It really is a unique innovation and an opportunity for you to be one of the first 20 companies who gets to trial the product before it is launched. All we ask is for your feedback to help us improve this for the SME and Local Government communities going forward.
