£700k for Cyber Cluster Collaboration

£700k for Cyber Cluster Collaboration

The organisation was established to help cyber security businesses build partnerships and programmes which break down barriers to growth, such as skills gaps and a lack of business support,  and provide a focal point for industry stakeholders to engage with.

The fund will be used by the UKC3 to provide opportunities for networking, knowledge sharing and funding to help develop skills and spur innovation.

Examples of cyber clusters across the UK include:

  • The CNI in Wales cyber security cluster helps organisations share intelligence and tackle cyber security challenges in Critical National Infrastructure (CNI)

  • Women in Cyber Wales Cluster provides networking opportunities and support to women working or hoping to work in the Welsh cyber sector

  • The ScotlandIS Cyber cluster represents and supports Scottish cyber security businesses and organisations, helping them to grow and collaborate

  • The North West Cyber Security Cluster brings together cyber security and IT industry professionals and organisations across Cumbria, Lancashire, Manchester and Merseyside.

  • The South West Cyber Security Cluster is a ‘not for profit’ collaboration raising cyber security awareness for business protection, innovation and skills in the south west of England.

  • NI Cyber brings together cyber security companies based in Northern Ireland which are developing world-leading cyber security technologies.
