Bidvest Noonan hosted the first ever UK TinyG event in the North East. The event was held at the Crowne Plaza in Newcastle and welcomed guests from the Police, Cyber Crime Agencies, Counter Terrorism Campaigners, and Security professionals across a variety of sectors.
The day-long conference featured speakers such as DCC Paul Anderson from the Humberside Police, Rebecca Chapman of the North East Business Resilience Centre (NEBRC), DI Martin Wilson of the NEBRC, Joe Cockcroft of the NEBRC, Julian Platt from Protect & Prepare, and Figen Murray OBE campaigner for Martyn’s Law.
Topics discussed included cybercrime, global terrorism, its impact on businesses, and what can be done to mitigate these risks. Attendees left with a better understanding of how to keep their businesses safe from potential threats.
Associations such as TinyG are important because they bring together security professionals to share best practices and learn from one another. This helps ensure that businesses are up-to-date on the latest threats and have the knowledge they need to protect their colleagues, customers, and assets.
Bidvest Noonan’s Managing Director for strategic growth Sarah Cork commented: “We are proud to have been the lead sponsor for such a fantastic event and welcoming businesses from across the North East. The day was a resounding success with extremely thought-provoking insights from all the speakers. The opportunity to collaborate with each other to combat terrorism and cyber-crime is invaluable. The panel session saw several of the attendees asking valuable questions that will further protect their businesses, the community and provide social value. We look forward to attending the next TinyG event.”
David Evans of TinyG said: “We’re delighted that our event was so well received especially since this is the first time hosting an event in the North East of England. We would like to thank all of our speakers for their contribution to the success of the event and our sponsors for supporting us. We are taking huge steps forward to combat terrorism and cyber-crime and look forward to hosting more events around the UK.”
