East Midlands Chamber - Cyber Security Webinar with the East Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre - Thursday, 18 June 2020

This event is held in partnership with the  East Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre (EMCRC) - 10:00am - 11:00am

The East Midlands Cyber Resilience Centre (EMCRC) are hosting this webinar for businesses of all sizes to introduce the centre and explain how your business can benefit from being involved.

Cyber crime continues to be a huge threat to businesses and the EMCRC will support and help protect your business people, assets and data against cyber criminals. The speakers will discuss the latest trends, cyber security advice to prevent becoming a victim of this borderless crime, and will also look into local case studies detailing any lessons learnt from these incidents.

Staying up to date with emerging threats and having access to the most up to date guidance from the National Cyber Security Centre is vital to help businesses detect, manage and respond to Cyber Crime. 

In the current climate many businesses have become more vulnerable to cybercrime as they respond to COVID-19. The National Cyber Security Centre has reported a 400% increase in coronavirus related crime in March alone.

Join us for this webinar to learn more about the work of EMCRC, where we will hear from industry specialists, get top tips for Cyber Poor organisations (businesses who have zero cyber awareness or simply cannot afford the measures/services of cyber security) and interact with the speakers.

Matt started in policing in 2002 within the Derbyshire Constabulary. Most of this time has been spent as a Detective and since 2009 as a Sergeant working through Divisional CID, Specialist Units and Major Crime.

​Prior to policing Matt came from a finance and sales background having been a qualified financial advisor looking after his own agency. He then moved to working with and presenting to all sizes of business as a sales consultant for a well-known national marketing company.

​Being part of the National Cyber Crime project Matt has benefited from training in a variety of Cyber related disciplines. Some that may be helpful in the new role will be his certificate in Information Security Management Principles, CSTA (Certified Security Testing Associate) Qualification in Ethical Hacking and he also holds the first membership certificate for the Institute of Information Security Professionals run by the College of Policing.


Dave joined the Derbyshire Constabulary in 1996 and qualified as a detective in 2001. He has performed a variety of roles, and has spent much of his operational career engaged in the fight against organised crime. Dave achieved promotion in 2012 and since then he has trained as a firearms commander and a Senior Investigating Officer, leading homicide enquiries in the East Midlands.

At more senior ranks Dave has again been focussed on tackling organised crime of all kinds, and reducing the harm it causes to communities. He has done this through a variety of roles, such as Director of Intelligence for Derbyshire, as regional lead for Cybercrime and as the National Coordinator for Serious and Organised Crime.

In May 2019 Dave was appointed Head of the East Midlands Special Operations Unit (EMSOU), which is at the forefront of tackling serious and organised crime of all types, including Cybercrime.

At The EMCRC she supports the Centre develop its business reach for the Protect Network to deliver consistent and current guidance in line with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) through a variety of different ways; including engagement with business leaders, following up Centre enquiries and event engagement.

As part of the Protect Network Jodie delivers tailored awareness presentations and completes one to one cyber security reviews for local businesses and organisations.
Jodie began her career as a Police staff member in 2014 with Nottinghamshire Police, until moving across to Derbyshire Constabulary in 2018. Most of that time was spent in Major Crime as a HOLMES and Casualty Bureau Indexer and Supervisor managing the enquiry system for homicides and other major incidents.

Since 2018 Jodie has been the force’s Cyber Protect Officer covering the Protect strand of the 4 P strategy, as well as assisting with the Pursue, Prepare and Prevent strands to help make businesses and the public more resilient against Cyber Crime.

Being certified in CISMP (Certificate in Information Security Management Principles) has helped equip Jodie to have relevant conversations with SME’s within Derbyshire to advise where they may be vulnerable to a cyber attack and make recommendations to increase their cyber security to protect their data, assets and people.
