THE Scottish Business Resilience Centre has today announced that the founding CEO of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC, part of GCHQ), Ciaran Martin, has joined its board to strengthen its strategic cyber relationships across the UK.
Ciaran will work with SBRC CEO, Jude McCorry and the wider organisation to build its broader cyber strategy and strengthen its relationship with industry and government.
Commenting on Ciaran’s appointment, Jude McCorry, CEO of SBRC, said: “Businesses have never before experienced the strain that they currently face as a direct result of Brexit and Covid-19. Added to the fact that we have seen a noticeable a rise in cyberattacks on businesses, if the extremely tough market conditions don’t negatively impact a business, a security breach might.
“The role of business resilience centres has never been more important. Ciaran’s experience with the NCSC, Cabinet Office and GCHQ will allow us to ensure that our own cyber strategy is industry leading and reinforce Scotland as one of the world leaders in cyber security.”
Ciaran Martin added: “The work that the SBRC does is unique; the collaboration and connection it has with its partners has helped to cement its position as one of the foremost business resilience organisations in Europe. I look forward to working with Jude and the team to support their vision and further enhance the organisation’s cybersecurity expertise.”
