CM-Alliance to Host Free Cybersecurity Training for Minority-Owned Businesses

Cyber Management Alliance Ltd, a cybersecurity consultancy and training organisation will be delivering eight events in cybersecurity training for minority-owned businesses in the Midlands region supported by Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS). 

Businesses will be able to attend the sessions during March and April 2022 at locations across the Midlands: Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Coventry, Derby, Leicester and Nottingham.

Attendees of the NCSC-Certified training course in Cybersecurity & Privacy Essentials (CSPE) will have the opportunity to learn:

  • How to protect their business from cyber criminals and ransomware attacks.
  • What is ‘Cyber Essentials’ and why it’s important and relevant for every business in the UK.
  • How to ensure they don’t get fined by the privacy regulator.

The training sessions will be followed by a Q&A session with the cybersecurity expert in English, Hindi, Urdu & Punjabi.

Amar Singh, CEO & Co-Founder of CM-Alliance said, “Cyber criminals are making millions of pounds from attacking small businesses who don’t always have the technical expertise to protect themselves from advanced attackers. We care deeply about enabling organisations to make themselves more resilient against cyber-crimes and are therefore thrilled to have received government support for furthering our mission.”

Bal Rai, Co-Founder & MD of CM-Alliance added, “As a minority-owned business ourselves, we are pleased to have this opportunity to train and empower others like us in bolstering their cyber resilience capabilities and protecting themselves from cyber-attacks and ransomware attacks.”

In addition to this, Cyber Management Alliance has been building widespread cyber resilience across the UK and trains organisations including the NHS, Police forces, and numerous local councils. Its overarching mission is to empower small businesses to build cybersecurity capabilities so that they can better protect themselves against cyber intruders and respond to business impacting cyber-attacks.
