In an era of increasing cyber threats, sports clubs are not immune to potential cybersecurity risks, especially prominent clubs with high-profile players.
This case study explores how Techn22, as a trusted IT service provider, helped a well-known sports club enhance their cyber threat protection, implement cyber awareness training, and establish robust mobile device management protocols. The partnership with Techn22 resulted in improved security measures, increased cyber awareness among staff and players, and enhanced protection of sensitive data.
Challenge 1: Enhancing Cyber Threat Protection
The sports club faced a growing concern over the rise of cyber threats targeting their organisation. They recognised the need for a comprehensive cyber threat protection strategy to safeguard their systems, sensitive information, and club and player reputation. The club sought a reliable IT partner to mitigate risks and prevent potential breaches.
Solution: Tailored Cyber Threat Protection
Techn22 conducted a thorough assessment of the sports club’s existing IT infrastructure, identifying vulnerabilities and potential entry points for cyber attacks. We designed and implemented a tailored cyber threat protection strategy, which included:
- Advanced Firewall Solutions: Techn22 deployed state-of-the-art firewall solutions to fortify the club’s network against unauthorised access and malicious activities.
- Intrusion Detection Systems: Real-time monitoring systems were implemented to detect any suspicious activities and prevent potential breaches promptly.

Challenge 2: Cyber Awareness and Training
Recognising that employees play a crucial role in maintaining cybersecurity, the sports club sought to improve cyber awareness and provide comprehensive training to its staff. They aimed to educate employees about common cyber threats and foster a culture of security within the organization.
Solution: Cyber Awareness Training
Techn22 developed and delivered customised cyber awareness training sessions for the sports club’s staff. These sessions covered topics such as phishing awareness, password hygiene, social engineering, and best practices for data protection. Through interactive workshops and informative materials, Techn22 empowered employees to identify and respond effectively to potential cyber threats.
Challenge 3: Managing Mobile Devices Securely
With a growing reliance on mobile devices, the sports club faced the challenge of securing sensitive data accessed and stored on these devices. They needed a robust mobile device management solution to ensure data privacy and mitigate the risk of unauthorised access.
Solution: Mobile Device Management (MDM)
Techn22 implemented a comprehensive Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution for the sports club. This solution enabled centralised management of mobile devices, including secure access controls, data encryption, and remote device wiping capabilities. By effectively managing and securing mobile devices, the club could protect sensitive data and ensure compliance with data privacy regulations.
