Michelle Ohren is announced as a Keynote speaker for the Securing Birmingham Breakfast Event
West Midlands Police Detective Inspector is announced as the keynote speaker at the ‘Securing Birmingham Breakfast Event’ organised by Cisco Master Security specialist, Nowcomm.
Michelle Ohren started in the police in 1996 and has worked within CID since 1999. This has given her a wealth of experience in policing all different crime types over the years. She is the Deputy Senior Investigating Officer for the UK’s largest human trafficking investigation, which began as new legislation was introduced, and this crime type was an unknown area of operation in policing and communities. Michelle works closely with other organisations and charities to provide the necessary support to victims, and the investigation team while raising awareness of this crime type.
Michelle became one of the West Midlands Police modern slavery advisors at a Force level, assisting officers across geographical and often regional boundaries. This entailed developing relationships and working closely with many different policing departments both in and out of the Force area, as well as multiple outside organisations and NGOs in partnership. This has given her a solid foundation in building long standing working relationships which she brings to her role in the CRC.
The Securing Birmingham Breakfast Event takes place at Aston Villa, Birmingham on 23 March. It will focus on cyber security and how businesses can best protect themselves against evolving cybercrime.
The event is organised by Nowcomm in partnership with Cisco, Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and West Midlands Cyber Reliance Centre. It aims to bring together local businesses and industry experts to present and discuss the changing crime landscape and current cyber protection practices that can be implemented by businesses.
Nowcomm is a Cisco Gold Partner and is proud to have recently become one of only two Master Security Specialized organisations in the UK.
Nowcomm Front Office Director and Nowcomm co-founder James Baly comments: “I am delighted that Michelle will share her expertise with delegates at our next event. Attendees will have the unique, exclusive opportunity to listen to Michelle draw on over 20 years of policing experience and paint a compelling picture of how organised crime has evolved from the streets to now being at the centre of cyber threats.
