eSpida, a leading technical consultancy and UK Cato Network Partner has recently become a platinum member of the Cyber Resilience Centre for the West Midlands (WMCRC).

As a Cyber Essentials accredited security consultancy, eSpida was approached by the WMCRC to join its growing network of specialists in order to improve awareness and build strong cyber strategy within the Midland’s SME market.

The WMCRC provides relevant resources and protection for businesses and third sector organisations and communities in this digital era. Using a combination of police officers and cyber talent, WMCRC supports and helps to protect small businesses, SMEs and supply chain businesses in the region against cybercrime.

As a leading provider of cyber security advice and technology solutions, eSpida was well placed to join the network. Rebecca Bradley, Commercial Director of eSpida commented, “ Cybercrime is a growing threat to the average SME. Companies are not always equipped to understand the mix of technology, people and policy needed to affect a really strong cyber strategy. We are really excited to become a platinum member of the Cyber Resilience Centre for the West Midlands as we are passionate about good security practices

Also commenting on the partnership, Vanessa Eyles Detective Superintendent and Director of The Cyber Resilience Centre for the West Midlands said “It is my pleasure to welcome eSpida to the growing number of businesses who have registered to become members of the WMCRC.

“Our mission is simple, we exist to help businesses of all sizes (although we do have a focus on SMEs, micro-businesses, and sole traders) to better protect themselves in the fight against cybercrime. It is collaborations such as this one with eSpida that will provide us with a wider platform, to further raise awareness of how following basic cyber security steps can have a significant effect on an organisation’s ability to fend off cybercriminals.

“I am delighted to be working with the team at eSpida, and I look forward to exploring how we can reach businesses across the whole of the region in the coming months to tackle the threat of cybercrime.”
