The £5 mn. centre, at Aztec West on the outskirts of the city in South Gloucestershire, was officially opened by the Home Office’s Minister for Modern Slavery and Organised Crime Karen Bradley, and is run by Protection Group International.

The centre already employs some 50 persons recruited from specialist fields and its customers include large companies, local councils, police forces and overseas governments.

During the opening, attendees were entertained by a “live hacking demonstration” (whatever that is. Ed.), according to the Post.
