Beverley McGowan, CEO of Specialists Hub and CyberPro, has been appointed to Co-Chair the new Cyber Expert Group for Greater Manchester alongside Detective Superintendent Neil Jones.
“Leading experts from companies including KPMG, Royal London, Hiscox, TalkTalk, Co-op, Deloitte and Siemens are coming together for a new cyber crime unit.
The Cyber Expert Group has been set up by the Cyber Resilience Centre and will include business leaders, law enforcement officers, intelligence agencies and academic experts. In this “closed confidential environment” they will share intelligence on the local cyber threat landscape.
This information will then be used to offer businesses the best advice and support to help grow their resilience to online crime, which costs the regional economy around £860m every year.”
