The Cyber Resilience Centre for Wales (WCRC) has welcomed its 100th member with a significant signing, iungo Solutions. The high growth creative technologies business which is run by the multi-award-winning engineer Jessica Leigh Jones MBE, is a company that builds immersive career planning solutions for the future of work.
With the latest statistics showing that an incredible 98% of UK businesses now operate online in one way or another, with even the smallest of firms benefiting hugely from the use of websites, social media, online banking and the ability for customers to shop online, it has never been more critical for businesses to be cyber secure.
And this is where the WCRC becomes a crucial resource. Established in partnership between the police, private sector and academia, it has been set up to help Welsh micro, small and medium-sized organisations protect themselves against cybercrime. The WCRC offers free core membership as an effective and simple way to ensure businesses are protected from common cyber-attacks.
Commenting on joining the WCRC, Jessica said: “As a tech-fuelled start-up, we are focused on protecting ourselves, our employees and our clients from potential attacks. It is not only imperative we ensure our own security is in place, but we instil the importance of this in the future work force we deal with so that they can protect themselves and their potential employers.
“We’re certainly thrilled to be a member of the WCRC. With the centre’s ongoing support and commitment to driving the cyber resilience message across Wales, we know that by joining we are also playing our part in tackling cybercrime.
Jessica, specialises in governance and organisational design and development, launched iungo Solutions with Tom de Vall in 2020 in response to the global pandemic. Unique in its offering, iungo provides a holistic career planning service for young people, enabling them to design personalised step-by-step career pathways to achieve their dream job.
Detective Superintendent and WCRC Director Paul Peters, added: “Welcoming such a high profile and successful individual as Jessica and iungo Solutions to the centre is a real coup for us. Her work across leadership, public speaking, talent management and teaching is pioneering as well as her dedication to driving the next generation of budding employees into progressive sectors is also very highly regarded. To have both herself and iungo Solutions on board is a real asset for us and we’re delighted to have them on board.”
Businesses can join the WCRC through a range of membership packages to access guidance, tools and affordable services to help better protect themselves against the threat of cybercrime.
