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:-

Our February meeting will explore the potential Cyber Roadmap - from an 11 years old school child to a young entrepreneur being supported to form their own business after graduating from University.

The meeting will be hosted by the Alacrity Foundation at their historic building next to the river in Newport.  Parking is available right across the street in the Friar's Walk multi-story car park.

The Alacrity team will give an overview of their history, methodology and success stories and there will be an opportunity to meet the brand new cohort of budding entrepreneurs.

In addition, the guest speaker will be from NCSC's Cyber First Programme which forms a pivotal part of the UK government’s National Cyber Security Programme. It covers a broad range of activities; a comprehensive bursary scheme, a girls only competition and development courses at UK universities and colleges. Each activity is designed to give talented young people the support, skills, experience and exposure they need to become cyberists of the future.

All of the material used on the Cyber First events can be made available to organisations who also want to help identify cyber talent in the young and steer them towards exciting careers and our speaker will explore how Cluster members can get involved.

See you all there!
