Liverpool FC tightens up cyber security, signs with NordVPN

Premier League club Liverpool FC has signed a new global partnership with Panamanian cybersecurity firm NordVPN.

As part of the deal, Nord VPN will become the club’s Official Cyber Security Partner, and will work with LFC to provide fans with robust web security solutions across their devices.

NordVPN protects and secures users’ identity and activity when they access unsecured networks, such as public Wi-Fi cafés, hotels, airports, restaurants and sports stadiums.

The partnership will also aim to educate supporters on the potential risks of using unsecured networks, and the importance of fans encrypting their internet connection to ensure privacy and safety online.

Billy Hogan, LFC’s managing director and chief commercial officer, said: “Increased awareness of cyber security is becoming incredibly important in our fast-paced, instantly connected society.

“While individuals are ultimately responsible for the information they share, having an extra layer of protection is highly recommended.

“With so much information constantly shared online, we’re committed to introducing greater levels of protection to secure the confidential data of our fans.”

To launch the partnership, NordVPN will be offering Reds fans a 30-day money back guarantee for new customers signing up at nordvpn.com/LFC, and a special offer on protection for three years at the equivalent of $2.99 per month.
