Salesforce named founding partner of North West cybercrime unit


The North West Cyber Resilience Centre (NWCRC) has revealed that Salesforce will be its latest founding partner.

The centre is part of a network of 9 regional hubs set up to support SMEs and third sector organisations reduce their vulnerability to cybercrime.

“We’re delighted to welcome Salesforce as our latest Founding Partner. Seeing so much interest in our mission to improve cyber resilience across the region’s business community is really encouraging. We’ve been fortunate with the calibre of partners supporting us,” explained Detective Chief Inspector Chris Maddocks of the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit.

“The NWCRC was set up in Greater Manchester in 2019 as a pilot scheme to support businesses in the region with the growing threat of cybercrime and cyber fraud. It was so successful that it was expanded for the North West region, rolled out to other areas across England and Wales, and included in the HM Government National Cyber Strategy 2022. As a result, the NWCRC membership continues to grow at pace year on year.”

As a Founding Partner of the NWCRC, Salesforce joins a team of experts helping businesses across the North West to ensure businesses in the region are aware of the growing threat of cybercrime and cyber fraud.

It joins existing founding partners, Irwin Mitchell, Northrop Grumman, Siemens and Verastar.

Salesforce’s Enterprise Account Executive Andy Doran will join the NWCRC Guidance Council and he added:

“It is exciting to be part of an amazing preventative service that supports policing and local businesses in the North West and nationally. At Salesforce, business is the greatest platform for change and doing good globally. We are honoured to be part of the amazing work the NWCRC is doing, and we are looking forward to supporting this work.”
