Training 2000 is all set to launch its new cyber security centre – which will work with businesses and individuals across the North West to ensure they are protected against damaging cyber-attacks.

Friday, 8 April will see the launch of the purpose built learning environment at the new cyber security centre in Nelson, where learners will be able to come out of their everyday working lives and into the fully iMac equipped facility.

The event will see the centre officially opened by Pendle MP Andrew Stephenson, before key note speakers highlight the current cyber risks affecting businesses.

The event will also hear from Mark Hindle, managing director of MNH Platinum, who provide specialist contract hire and vehicle management. The Blackburn-based business was directly affected by a cyber-attack.

There will then be the opportunity to tour the facility, and network with fellow attendees.

Training at the Netherfield Road site will include cyber security awareness training, and how important protecting against potential attack is for businesses – alongside ‘cyber essentials’ training which will make sure businesses are equipped to achieve the government standard.

Andrew Stephenson MP said: “It is great that this facility will be on the doorstep for businesses across Lancashire. Cyber security and the need for businesses to manage the risk and protect their interests has never been more crucial.”

Mark Hindle, managing director of MNH Platinum added: “Our business has seen first-hand the dangers posed by a cyber attack, and I think Training 2000’s cyber division will make sure professionals avoid the potential pitfalls and risks – reducing the opportunities for an attack to take place.”

Steve Gray, Training 2000 CEO said: “Cyber security is such an important issue for businesses across the North West and beyond.

“Our new state-of-the-art training centre will provide quality, relevant training – protecting the digital services which businesses increasingly depend on and linking into the research and development carried out by Lancaster University alongside some of the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership’s current strategies.”
