Sharing the responsibility of keeping the public safe

Now more than ever, the public looks to us all to keep them in safe hands. Whether it’s policing the streets, providing care through government services, or ensuring their cyber security. Together we share the responsibility of protecting people.

Though we can call on cutting-edge technology to achieve this, it’s the people that really make the difference. So now’s an ideal team to meet some of our talented individuals leading the battle against cyber crime.

By watching the videos, reading the reports, registering for the webinars and contacting us to find out more, you can get a unique insight into the innovative thinking and teamwork keeping our network – and our customers – safe from threats to security.

Because with us protecting your organisation the way we do ours, you can provide even better protection and crucial public services for us all. 

Protecting your organisation like we do ours 

Cyber crime is big news – and nobody wants to be the next organisation making the headlines for the wrong reasons.

On our network, we block 14,000,000 unauthorised connection attempts a day. And with over 100,000 devices and 6,000 buildings to protect in 180 countries, we’ve been setting security standards worldwide for years.

Because cyber crime has the potential to bring down governments – and even the police are targets – weaving data and digital best practice into the fabric of your organisation is key. See how our Embedded Security solutions can protect your organisation the way we do ours.

Konstantinos Karagiannis, CTO and blockchain hacker

Ethical hacking can help prevent millions, or even billions, being lost to cyber crime. Konstantinos highlights how BT keeps ahead of the hackers. “I spend my half my time breaking into banks! We identify any flaws in a banking system before the real criminals get in there.”
