Supporting Businesses in Oldham with Free Cyber Security Guidance & Fully Funded Support
Recently our Marketing Manager Jared was supported by Neighbourhood Prevention Hub Officer Andy Bigland from Oldham (Greater Manchester Police) to offer our support to businesses in Royton, Uppermill and Oldham.
Over a couple of afternoons, we connected with a number of local businesses to share some of our free cyber security guidance, discuss their own cyber experiences and talk to business owners about our free membership and fully funded cyber security support.
Marketing Manager Jared Thompson said:
"Speaking to local businesses and listening to their concerns around hacked social media accounts and when to back up their data shows us that many businesses still aren't as secure as they can be. Smaller businesses are unsure where to turn to if their Facebook or Instagram pages are hacked."
"At the Cyber Resilience Centre, we can offer businesses a range of free support to help train their staff and put in place a range of measures to increase their resilience against cyber attacks."
