Rob Cotton, Chief Executive, NCC Group plc comments on the
launch of the new regional e-crime hub in Manchester:
"We welcome the move to place one of the new e-crime hubs here.
There is already a wealth of digital and technological innovation
going on in the region, so it makes sense for the hub to draw on
"Harold Wilson described the 'white heat' of Manchester's
technology scene nearly fifty years ago. With its universities,
high-tech businesses and the new hub there's now a real opportunity
for the city to recreate that, and become the UK's leading centre
of excellence for information security.
"The next step should be investment in education and training to
ensure that the next generation of innovators continues to develop
the region's expert reputation."
