CPG Partner with Award Winning Cyber-Security Experts ESET to Protect its Business and Members2 min read

Posted on: 28th Jun 2021

ESET is a member of the Business Club by CPG – Find out more here

A three-year business partnership between the Confederation of Professional Golf [CPG] and ESET has been announced, which will protect businesses in golf and support PGAs and PGA Professionals with crucial antivirus software and services.

As ‘Official Cyber Security Provider for the CPG’, ESET’s partnership with the CPG will involve the launch of a campaign to educate the organisation’s 42 Member Countries, their 12,500+ PGA Professionals and millions of golfers they interact with about cyber security, ensuring they are armed with the information and best-in-class solutions to protect themselves from the losses and disruption caused by growing levels of cybercrime.

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the world’s reliance on digital communication and accelerated our usage of digital and cloud-based technology by as much as up to five years. As a result, vulnerability to cybercrime and the awareness of the disruption and financial loss it can cause has quickly grown too, regardless of whether somebody is at a golf club, workplace or home setting.

Chief Executive of the CPG, Ian Randell, said: “Our new partnership with ESET comes at an important time for all of us, as we are constantly reminded of the threats from online criminals and cybercrime.

“In partnership with ESET, not only are we securing our own business but we are also striving to help our members, their PGA Professionals, business partners and wider networks to future proof their own businesses through the provision of tailored cyber security solutions.”

ESET is a global provider of cyber security and antivirus software solutions to businesses and consumers across more than 200 countries and territories. Their commercial client base ranges from SMEs and sole traders through to major blue-chip organisations such as Mitsubishi, Allianz, Cannon, T-Mobile and Detron.

ESET’s UK Managing Director, Malcolm Tuck said: “As golf businesses continue to streamline their operations through new technologies and online working practices, the need for tailored and comprehensive cyber security becomes increasingly important for their own and their customers’ peace of mind. We are looking forward to working with the CPG, their Members and Business Partners to address this issue”.
