Loughborough-based Flotec, a trusted and leading supplier of reliable hose and engineering solutions to the rail market, obtains core membership through the Cyber Resilience Centre.
The East Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre is a not-for-profit organisation which is operated by the combined East Midlands Police authorities and exists to protect businesses in the region from falling victim to cybercrime.
It is estimated that by 2025, humankinds combined data will reach a staggering 175 zettabytes.
Inevitably, as the amount of data escalates so too will cybercrime.
It is prudent for businesses and individuals to understand the threat of digital crime and be best prepared to defend and safeguard against potential compromise.
A visit to cybermap.kaspersky.com demonstrates in real time precisely how active and volatile global cyber-attacks are.
Barry Michael Aldridge – Head of Marketing for Flotec explains the move towards becoming a Cyber Resilience Centre member: “From a commercial marketing perspective, I have been a long-time believer in the need to protect data.
Unfortunately, the subject often receives little attention from not just marketers but also businesses in their entirety.
The Cyber Resilience Centre offers a wide range of support, advice, and training so it made perfect sense that Flotec should become a member.
I place data protection very much within CSR documentation and at the heart of a wider marketing strategy.
Businesses of all sizes need to think and act about making themselves as cyber safe as possible.
I plan to use the training resources available from the EMCRC to raise awareness, understanding and technical aptitude throughout the organisation.”
