Updated: Feb 1

The Cyber Resilience Centre for the South East are delighted to announce a new collaborative and strategic partnership with 3M™UK Limited.

3M™ have joined The Cyber Resilience Centre for the South East (SECRC) as a member to support businesses in the South East against cybercrime.


With the rise of shared workspaces, hot desking and remote work, the opportunity for confidential information to be exposed on-screen is high. Visual hacking, or the capture of confidential information using visual means, is a real threat to cyber security.


To help manage the risk of a data breach, IT Managers often implement digital controls like authentication, encryption and firewalls. Most IT leaders admit visual hacking is a significant risk for their organisation.


Science-based global technology company, 3M™, is a leader in visual privacy protection. It provides privacy solutions which help protect end-point devices. 3M™ Privacy Filters are an easy-to-implement first line of defence from costly breaches and an essential part of a comprehensive IT data security plan.


3M™ offers products that fit over 40,000 devices so chances are 3M™ has the right product to help protect your screen and keep the information displayed on it private.
