Criminals understand that logistics companies depend on a delay free environment so that they can get their goods picked up and delivered quickly and efficiently.
Anything that interferes with this will have to be dealt with straight away as delays cost money and reputational damage – that means ransom demands against logistics companies are likely to be paid quickly and quietly to ensure goods transits remains unaffected. That makes them particularly vulnerable to attack.
How can the ECRC help?
The Eastern Cyber Resilience Centre (ECRC) is a policing-led, not for profit, membership organisation that is a part of a national network of centres, established by the Home Office to help small and medium organisations tackle the rising threat of cyber-attacks.
We offer a FREE core membership that provides practical advice on building your cyber resilience, including:
Free Little Steps training programme: A series of weekly emails, looking at bite-sized practical information to help businesses understand and build cyber resilience
Regional and national threat alerts
Signposting to free tools and resources from both policing and the NCSC
Discussion area to meet and discuss other companies in the region and our partners
Through our core membership, you also gain access to our integrated range of Cyber Resilience Services. These services are designed help businesses assess, build, and manage online networks as well as assisting businesses and their staff to have the right strategies to respond to incidents efficiently and so migrate any potential damage a cyber-attack may create.
We have a flexible paid-for range of Business Support Package options to suit the level of support required for your business. Our policing-led team can help you identify what’s most relevant to you.
