The well-known operations manager for Penarth lifeboat, Jason Dunlop, is taking the helm of a new cyber-security business venture based at Penarth Marina.
Mr Dunlop is a veteran lifeboat crew volunteer with a number of awards to his credit for his rescue work with the RNLI. Now – in his day-job – he is handling regional development for Xcina, a company which provides firms with monitoring and data analysis services, cyber detection and response to cyber-threats.
Xcina is a part of the Shearwater Group and has just opened a new office at the co-working space and innovation centre Tec Marina – in Penarth Marina .
The firm offers local businesses a range of services to improve their cyber-security. In addition, Xcina will also help prepare businesses to handle the raft of new data regulations coming into force in May this year.
Mr Dunlop says “This is an exciting time for Xcina and we look forward to further announcements this year as we continue our investment and expansion in Wales.”
