New North East partnership to help firms fight cyberthreats


The North East Business Resilience Centre (NEBRC) has joined forces with Arcserve to help local companies deal with cyberthreats and ransomware.

Minnesota-based Arcserve has more than 35 years of data protection experience and will provide free educational resources, including webinars, newsletter contributions and industry-specific content.

“We thought this was a unique opportunity to help UK businesses in their time of need, and one that was near impossible for us to turn down,” stated Mick Bradley, Vice President of EMEA at Arcserve.

“We see businesses in the North as a key element of our shared economic future and securing them is an indispensable part of Arcserve’s UK mission. Joining with the NEBRC will help us to fulfil our social responsibility of providing them with education, best practices, and industry insights to help protect themselves from cyberthreats – in addition to just providing them with tools for the task.”

NEBRC is a non-profit organisation, established to inform and protect companies in the North East.

“Though many businesses in the North East are faced with a challenging set of economic circumstances outside their control, this is not a time for letting business continuity and data protection fall to the wayside” said Rebecca Chapman, Director at the NEBRC.

“Ransomware, to give just one example, continues to pose a significant and rising threat to UK small businesses. By giving our partners access to Arcserve’s decades of hard-won, in-the-trenches, IT expertise, we can better give them the support they need.”
