Scotland’s leading cyber crime organisation calling for new Board members

Jude McCorry (CEO of the Cyber and Fraud Centre - Scotland)

THE CYBER and Fraud Centre – Scotland is looking to add four new people to its Board, following its recent rebrand and a renewed refocus on cyber crime and fraud; the organisation was previously known as the Scottish Business Resilience Centre. 

The not-for-profit relies on its Board for advice and help identifying new opportunities for combatting cyber crime and fraud targeting Scottish organisations.

It is particularly keen to hear from applicants with high-level experience in strategic marketing, communications, financial management, human resource management, or law.

Jude McCorry, CEO of Cyber and Fraud Centre – Scotland, said: “It’s important to us that everyone sitting on our Board takes an active role and is willing to challenge us on business matters and strategy – these aren’t roles for anyone looking to sit quietly in a room. 

“We have expanded our services and recently rebranded to hold ourselves accountable and committed to tackling cyber crime and fraud to make Scotland a safer place to do business. We hope our new Board members will work with our existing members and chair to help us grow in a way that allows us to tackle ever-evolving cyber threats.”

Board member responsibilities include providing advice on the organisation’s strategy and business goals and objectives, and willingness to consider the opinions of stakeholders where appropriate.

Jude added: “We genuinely care for and respect everyone we work with; focus, agility, and accountability are at the centre of how we operate, and we emphasise equality and diversity with the organisation. We expect the same from our Board members.”

The Board meets four times a year at the Cyber and Fraud Centre – Scotland’s office in Linlithgow, West Lothian. Appointments are for a three-year term, that can be renewed for a maximum of six years.

Applicants are not required to have previous experience sitting on a Board.

Anyone interested in applying should send an up-to-date CV and cover letter setting out their suitability for the role before 23 March 2023, to Kara.McLaughlin@cyberfraudcentre.com
