National Business Crime Solution (NBCS) is celebrating the progress of its Associate Membership scheme. The non-profit initiative enables the sharing of data between law enforcement agencies and the business community to reduce crime. Alongside others, it has recently welcomed organisations such as Axis Communications, SmartWater and GMS group who join companies such as Hikvision, Mitie and Athelney Group.
The scheme bridges the gap between technology providers and end users, giving vendors access to senior decision makers at respectable organisations across the UK. Through a range of initiatives, such as one-day seminars, there are opportunities to demonstrate risk management, security, fraud and loss prevention solutions. NBCS has also introduced a monthly series of crime call events, where members and associate members take part in a conference call to discuss specific issues and examine how technology can help address them by creating safer environments.
Furthermore, NBCS actively seeks to open new avenues for Associate Members across a range of vertical sectors and government bodies by encouraging participation across its initiatives such as (Business Impact Reduction Day) BIRD and the community guarding scheme. It also helps position NBCS as a critical friend of business, the police service and all business reduction partnerships, through furthering the use of technology by all those affected by business crime.
NBCS Associate Membership is available in a number of different packages and costs between £4,000-£15,000 a year. The basic package features advertising and promotion to existing members, while the premium package includes consultancy from senior NBCS personnel, who are able to advise on subjects such as fraud risk, risk management, enterprise risk management and security deployment.
‘Having Milestone Systems, Axis Communications, GMS Group, SmartWater and SWL Security join us is the icing on the cake of what’s been a very busy but exciting year for the Associate Membership scheme,’ concluded Daniel Hardy, managing director at NBCS.
