Over 80 people attended the official opening of Training 2000’s new state-of-the-art Cyber Security Centre – with the facility fully equipped to provide expert training for businesses, protecting against the real threat posed by a cyber-attack.

With the ribbon cut by Pendle MP Andrew Stephenson, the event included keynote speakers which highlight the ever increasing importance of the digital world for businesses across almost every industry, and the risks attached to this new cyber-world.

Delegates also heard about one businesses experience of cyber-crime, with MNH Platinum Ltd’s managing director Mark Hindle outlining how a ransomware threatened the businesses data after gaining access via a phishing attack.

Training 2000 CEO Steve Gray, who opened the event, said:

“Cyber Security is not just about IT systems, it is about people – making sure your employees are fully aware of the cyber risks and how to respond to them should be crucial for any organisation.

“The vision for this centre is to become the Cyber Security Hub for the North of England and it was fantastic to see so many businesses have the opportunity to experience the facility for themselves.”

Andrew Stephenson MP said: “I was really pleased to have the opportunity to open what is an impressive facility, which offers a vital service to businesses within Lancashire and beyond.

“Cyber security and the need for businesses to manage the risk and protect their interests has never been more crucial, and I am sure that businesses from across the North will benefit from the training which will be provided from the Nelson centre.”
