Altinet has been chosen by Leeds United as their official Cyber Security Partner. The multi-year technology agreement between the two organisations will see the club working alongside Altinet in developing their cyber defences.
Paul Bell, Executive Director at Leeds United, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Altinet. Cyber security has always been an important consideration in our online operations, but we are aware of how our recent promotion into the Premier League will make this area all the more critical moving forwards and we are looking to leveraging Altinet’s expertise to enhance our defences”.
Henry Doyle, Director at Altinet Ltd, added: “Many companies in the sports sector and similar public-facing industries don’t realise just how attractive they are as targets for cybercriminals – and as clubs continue to grow their online platforms and digital capabilities, it is only becoming easier for hackers to gain access.
“Altinet are thrilled to be working with Leeds United again, and hope to see more sports bodies giving serious consideration to these government warnings.”
