Enhanced digital security for Marble Arch businesses is even more tangible with the London Digital Security Centre (LDSC), a not for profit organisation, joint venture between the Mayor of London, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and the City of London Police (CLP). Safety, both physical and digital, is a cornerstone of the Marble Arch BID, so we want to ensure our businesses our protected.
LSDC offers tailored staff training and education programmes, security assessment and digital footprint assessments. Moreover, membership is free of charge. They work in partnership with private industry and academia to help businesses, primarily the 1 million small / medium business (<249 employees), to embrace digital innovations and operate in a secure online environment protecting themselves against cyber criminals.
In partnership with the Metropolitan Police, the City of London Police and industry experts, the Centre delivers varied masterclasses, workshops and personal consultations across the capital.
Each event targets specific areas of digital security that will enhance your business’s ability to operate in a secure digital environment and help your business to innovate and grow.
On 12 October, the Deputy Mayor for Business, Rajesh Agrawal, hosted a City Briefing to discuss LSDC’s acitivites during the past year:
- Promoting the LDSC membership scheme to help businesses to operate, grow and innovate in a secure digital environment.
- Creating an ‘In the Community’ programme of activities and initiatives in partnership with the Metropolitan Police and the City of London Police to provide one-to-one consultations across London.
- Showcasing selected market leading products that help businesses protect themselves from digital crime and online risks in The London Digital Security Centre MarketPlace.
- Developing a framework that allows LDSC to evidence a positive shift in the security posture of businesses that they engage with.
