SOUTH WALES CYBER SECURITY CLUSTER

Glyndwr University, Wrexham.  Home of the North Wales Cyber Security Cluster

The South Wales Cyber Security Cluster has been formed, under the umbrella of the UK Cyber Security Forum, by a number of cyber security focused businesses in the Cardiff area including Pervade Software Ltd, Wolfberry IT Security and Urquhart-Dykes & Lord LLP.

The aims of the Cluster are two-fold:-

  • To support the members of the cluster by communicating National and International initiatives and trade opportunities, providing a networking platform to share ideas and best practice, encouraging collaboration and identifying partnership opportunities so that small cyber security specialist businesses in Wales can find new ways to grow.
  • To support the Welsh Government's commitment to Cyber Security (and UK Government's Cyber Security Strategy) by building cyber security knowledge, skills and capabilities in the Region, to make businesses more resilient to cyber attacks and the Region one of the most secure places in the world to do business.

NEXT CLUSTER MEETINGS - (full details are on the Cluster Meetings page)

The next meeting will be:-

We are in the middle of one of the hottest Summers on record and the longest heatwave since 1976 - definitely time for another social event!

Wahaca in Cardiff city centre have hosted us for a number of social gatherings of the South Wales Cyber Security Cluster and this month, those who are not off sunning themselves on holiday are more than welcome to pop in.

Once again, Wahaca have offered the use of their cocktail bar in the upstairs mezzanine of their where we would love to see as many of you as can make it to chat over drinks and discuss the huge range of activities that have involved the Cluster over the last four years.

This includes, more recently, the evolution of the Welsh Cyber Clusters into a globally recognised Cyber Ecosystem which has prompted excursions to visit other international ecosystems such as Brussels, exchange visits such as Israel and Canada and involvement in global initiatives such as the Entrepreneur Soft Landing scheme.

We would love to be joined by members of our sister Cluster in North Wales and of the Sub-Clusters who specialise in Data Privacy, DevOps and IP Protection and it will be great to see people from all 5 of the groups come together and give a toast to the year ahead.

See you all there!
