SBRC Changes Name

In response to the rapidly evolving threat of cybercrime, the Scottish Business Resilience Centre (SBRC) recently changed its name to the Cyber and Fraud Centre. The new name reflects the organisation’s focus on helping Scottish businesses defend against the growing threat of cybercrime and fraud. 


The SBRC was established in 2014 as a partnership between the Scottish Government, Police Scotland, and industry leaders to help businesses in Scotland become more resilient to various types of risks, including cyber threats. However, with the rise of cybercrime in recent years, the SBRC recognised the need to shift its focus and adapt to the changing landscape of risk management. 


The new name, Cyber and Fraud Centre, reflects this shift with a stronger focus on cyber threats and fraud prevention. The organisation offers a range of services to help Scottish businesses mitigate the risk of cyber-attacks and financial fraud, including risk assessments, training and support. 


One of the key services offered by the Cyber and Fraud Centre is their Cyber Incident Response Service. This service provides businesses with immediate support in the event of a cyber-attack, including incident management and technical support. The Cyber and Fraud Centre also offers a range of training and awareness programs to help businesses better understand the risks associated with cybercrime and fraud. 


The Cyber and Fraud Centre also works closely with law enforcement agencies, such as Police Scotland, and Trusted partners, such as Tycom, to help businesses report and respond to cyber incidents. The organisation also collaborates with other industry bodies, such as the Scottish Financial Crime Group, to share knowledge and best practices in the fight against cybercrime and fraud. 


In addition to these services, the Cyber and Fraud Centre provides businesses with access to a range of resources and tools to help them stay up to date on the latest threats and best practices for cybersecurity and fraud prevention. These resources include regular updates on emerging threats, guidance on cybersecurity policies and procedures, and access to industry experts for advice and support. 


Overall, the Cyber and Fraud Centre’s services and resources are designed to help Scottish businesses build resilience against the growing threat of cybercrime and fraud. By working with businesses and other stakeholders, the organisation is helping to create a safer and more secure business environment in Scotland. The name change reflects their focus and commitment to supporting Scottish businesses in the face of ever-evolving threats.
