A new trusted partner
Team Zhero is proud to announce that we are now a Trusted Partner of the Cyber Resilience Centre for London (CRC). Our collaboration with the CRC for London was made possible with the initiative and support of Zhero’s founder, Izak Oosthuizen, our Head of R&D, Professor Muttukrishnan Rajarajan, and CRC CEO, Simon Newman. Zhero is one of only eleven IT providers to be elected as a CRC Trusted Partner.
Founded in 2022, the primary objective of the CRC for London is to provide cybersecurity advice and support for London-based businesses, with a focus on small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs). It is part of a national network of nine Regional Centres across the country whose role is to support SMEs and third-sector organisations to reduce their vulnerability to cybercrime. The CRC is a police-led, not-for-profit organisation working in partnership with the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime.
The CRC’s services include Security Awareness Training, Business Continuity Exercises, and Vulnerability Assessment. Its Community Outreach programme involves visiting small business owners at their place of work. Working alongside uniformed police officers, practical support on improving cybersecurity is provided onsite. This includes step-by-step guidance on setting up two-factor authentication, automatic updates, and implementing a robust password policy.
Team Zhero is super excited about the opportunities that this partnership has to offer. Each of the eleven CRC partners will be given a specific month to showcase their cybersecurity expertise, which Simon says is like being given the keys to the CRC for London. Zhero’s turn is coming up in March. Working with the CRC, we’ll be hosting events and live webinars, creating educational material such as infographics, and participating in the Community Outreach programme. Our alliance with the CRC for London forms part of our mission to make London a safe place for all to do business online.
