CPP Group teams up with sports club cyber specialist

Marking its return to the UK market, CPP Group has partnered with cybersecurity specialist DeCyber. 

The link-up is aimed at helping sports organisations and leisure businesses detect and manage cyber risks. The products suite consists of OwlDetect, KYND, and Wardwiz and is provided in conjunction with cyber insurance cover through Lloyd’s of London and risk awareness training via CybSafe.

“Small organisations and businesses represent very easy targets for cyber hackers and distributers of malware,” noted Michael Whitfield, managing director of UK new business at CPP.

“Creating awareness of the damage that cyberattacks can cause is the first objective and we’re delighted to be partnering with the DeCyber team in presenting a set of tools that can help to achieve this in a very straightforward and approachable way.”

Whitfield believes there is huge value in the fact that the offerings can assist in preventing the consequences of a breach.

“The statistics out there about the risks that sports clubs are facing are pretty frightening, especially when you consider there are multiple ways that they can be targeted and that all these organisations will hold member or customer data,” said DeCyber managing director Jonathon Lane.

“DeCyber’s easy-to-use platform and proprietary ‘healthcheck’ process ensures that clubs and associations can have simple, easy, and cost-effective access to the latest cyber protection solutions.”

Meanwhile CPP said a number of other technology-related products will be unveiled in the coming months.
