The National Management Centre (NMC), the only national centre of expertise to protect police forces against cyber-attacks, has been shortlisted twice for the National Technology Awards.
The NMC has been chosen as a finalist in the Best Tech Place to Work Award because of how it helps its staff thrive by creating an effective technology workforce supporting external activities and communities. The organisation believes it has created this by supporting its staff and encouraging team bonding throughout the Covid pandemic through working remotely while also focusing efforts on attracting, developing, and retaining the best staff.
The NMC has also been named as a finalist in the Security Innovation of the Year category thanks to its unique approach to protecting police forces against cyber security threats. Security threats to business operations and personal data are becoming ever more common and complex, and the ways in which security products have had to respond mean that there is a need for constantly evolving technology innovations to keep users and systems safe. The NMC is the only nationally coordinated, locally delivered centre of expertise in the country dedicated to protecting police forces across England and Wales against cyber-attacks.
The National Management Centre has previously won two other national awards; the 2020 Security Excellence Award- Risk Management and Security Project of the Year at Computing’s Digital Technology Leaders’ Awards 2020. We have also recently been shortlisted for a Computing Cloud Excellence Award.
National Management Centre Director, Steve Reid, said: “I am delighted that the NMC has been chosen as a Finalist for these awards and that our work is being recognised even though we are still a relatively new organisation. The team is dedicated and passionate about protecting police forces and I’m pleased to see their innovation, passion and commitment being recognised by the shortlisting panel. We’ll keep our fingers crossed that we win on the night!”
