CyberNI Week is a Northern Ireland Cyber Security Centre (NICSC) initiative which BT is delighted to support with a series of free to attend events throughout the week to share cyber security best practice, knowledge and our experience.

Cyber crime is big business, and it’s becoming more of a threat every day, as more and more people and devices connect to the internet.  Millions of people around the world rely on BT’s expertise to ensure they can go about their lives and run their businesses safely.  With security operations in over 180 countries supporting some of the world’s largest companies, nation’s states and critical national infrastructures, BT has a unique perspective in this area.

While locally in Belfast we have our state-of-the-art Security Operations Centre monitoring, detecting and responding to security threats 24×7, 365 days a year to keep our customers, their networks and data safe.
