Last month, representatives from senior policing, government and industry joined together at the prestigious City of London Guildhall for the second annual National Cyber Resilience Centre (CRC) Summit. The event was hosted by NCRCG CEO Detective Superintendent Ian Kirby. Maxine Bulmer, Vice President for Consulting Delivery in CGI’s Cyber Security Practice supported the event as the newest NCRCG National Ambassador representing CGI.

Each year, the summit marks a key opportunity for all those with a role in strengthening our nation’s cyber resilience to share their insights and expertise. Importantly, the event gives NCRCG’s National Ambassador partners the chance to engage in one-to-one conversations with senior Home Office officials and senior police officers, including from the City of London Police, and further explore both the need and impact of private-public sector partnerships in the cyber resilience arena.

Maxine Bulmer, Vice President for Consulting Delivery in CGI’s Cyber Security Practice and NCRCG National Ambassador, said:

“At CGI, cyber security is part of everything we do – and we support our clients in making sure it’s also part of everything they do. Being an NCRCG National Ambassador is, therefore, something that aligns very well with our values. Through events like the CRC Summit, we are able to bring our knowledge, expertise, and personality to the table, but importantly, hear from and collaborate with other Ambassador companies to ensure a consistent voice in cyber resilience across the nation.”


Speaking at this year’s summit, Temporary Assistant Commissioner Nik Adams, City of London Police, said:

“To continue to grow, it is important that we are doing all we can to galvanise the SME community and encourage more businesses to sign up to their regional centre. At a national level, we also need to continue building those essential strategic partnerships so that we can access the types of skills, expertise and resources required to achieve cyber resilience across the UK. It is by no means an easy or straightforward task, but I am confident we are taking – and will continue to take – positive steps forward.”
