C3RI’s Centre for Excellence in Terrorism, Resilience, Intelligence and Organised Crime Research (CENTRIC) have announced the launch of Yorkshire Cyber, a collaboration with Stuart Hyde Associates to develop cyber resilience for SMEs across the Yorkshire and Humberside region.

Yorkshire Cyber recognises that cyber-security support is often aimed at larger companies with conferences and events held in city centres. This reduces the opportunities for SMEs in smaller and more remote locations to receive the support and information that would assist them in building effective cyber resilience. Yorkshire Cyber will reach out to SMEs in a range of towns across Yorkshire by holding immersive, interactive events, using innovative technology, designed by CENTRIC, in order to fill this gap and extend the reach of essential support. This short-term project is actively supported by the Yorkshire and Humberside Regional Organised Crime Unit who, along with local police cyber units, will be involved with the events.

These FREE events will take place in April, May and June 2018 in the following Yorkshire towns:
• Barnsley
• Beverley
• Halifax
• Harrogate
• Scarborough
• Shipley

For more information and to book a place, visit the Yorkshire Cyber website or follow us on twitter @YorkshireCyber.

Yorkshire Cyber has received Higher Education Innovation Funding (HEIF), which supports and develops knowledge-based interactions between universities / colleges and the wider world and which results in economic and social benefit to the UK.
