The ECRC welcomes The Cyberfort Group to the board

The Cyberfort Group (Cyberfort) are delighted to become a member of the Eastern Cyber Resilience Centre board and feel this is a natural fit with us and our mission for ensuring peace of mind about the security of data and compliance within businesses.

Security is the essence of who we are and has evolved from the way our organisation and the individuals within it behave and think about security; it’s in the DNA of Cyberfort and at the heart of our culture.


Cyberfort is an end-to-end cyber security managed service business, we specialise in three core service pillars; Compliance, Cybersecurity and Cloud. Across these pillars we offer a matrix of solutions from cloud hosting, cybersecurity, penetration testing, business continuity planning, business compliance, incident management, disaster recovery support and much more.


Our partners range from the largest of HMG departments, to non-departmental public bodies including projects of critical national infrastructure status. Our private sector work is equally wide-ranging, including blue-chip and FTSE companies, SMEs and agile technology start-ups.


We believe that security affects everyone, therefore security services should be available to everyone no matter where they are on their business journey.


As a new board member, Nigel is looking forward to working with fellow board members to promote an understanding of the cyber threat landscape and support the adoption of ‘good’ security practice across the region.
