Ian Vickers, founder of cyber secure hybrid cloud platform METCloud, has been appointed to the board of the West Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre (WMCRC).
The fourth of 10 centres planned for the UK, WMCRC works with the police to give local businesses a dedicated point of contact for information and advice on cybercrime protection.
Vickers said: “The most effective way to combat the surge in cybercrime is through close collaboration with the government, NCSC, the police, businesses and academia. I believe the WMCRC is very well positioned to be the epicentre of this collaboration.”
Ian Vickers has previously been Chairperson of the Birmingham Related Crime Steering Group; a board member of the Birmingham Community Safety Partnership and the West Midlands Crime Partnership; and an active member of the CompTIA UK Executive Council.
