Using a combination of police officers and cyber talent, the Cyber Resilience Centre for the South East supports and helps protect small business, SMEs and supply chain businesses and third sector organisations in the region against cyber crime.

Covering the areas of Thames Valley, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, West Sussex, East Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, and the Isle of Wight, we are working with local Universities and the Police forces, which provides us with access to the latest local as well as national information on emerging cyber threats, criminal trends, best practice for cyber resilience and new technology to provide you with timely guidance to prepare and protect your business, staff and clients from cyber criminals.

We provide affordable cyber security testing and training services, with the opportunity to learn how to procure private sector cyber security products, services, or resources.  Whether it's just a health check for your company or its employees, we can help with whatever your cyber needs.

A trusted resource, we are also a straightforward place to find IASME approved Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus Certifiers in the South East. These are recognised nationally as Trusted Partners.

The Cyber Resilience Centre for the South East is modelled on a successful structured collaboration acclaimed by the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC). It is part of a nationwide network of not for profit centres set up by the Home Office and Business Resilience International Management.
