National Business Crime Solution (NBCS), a not for profit initiative that enables the sharing of data between law enforcement agencies and the business community in order to reduce crime, is celebrating a successful first year for its Associate Membership scheme. NBCS recently welcomed Milestone Systems, Axis Communications, GMS Group, SmartWater and SWL Security as Associate Members, and these organisations join Mitie, CSL Group, Hikvision and Athelney Group as part of this pioneering initiative.

The Associate Membership scheme bridges the gap between technology providers and end users, giving vendors access to senior decision makers at some of the nation’s most prestigious organisations. Through a range of initiatives, such as one-day seminars, they get a unique opportunity to demonstrate their risk management, security, fraud and loss prevention solutions. NBCS has also introduced a monthly series of Crime Call events, where NBCS 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.

Security deployment & risk management

NBCS actively seeks to open new avenues for Associate Members across a range of vertical sectors and government bodies

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 Operation 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.

Associate Membership status

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. “Having so many prestigious security solutions providers on board has proven mutually beneficial both for them and NBCS Members and allowed us to encourage these two interdependent groups to engage in constructive dialogue. We are currently talking to a number of other companies and will soon be in a position to announce their Associate Membership status.”
