Just one week ago, we were right in the midst of the International Cyber Expo, held in London. As we reflect on the incredible time we had, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to all those who stopped by to visit our booth. Many great conversations were had from what is a cluster, to getting involved, to what exactly is a secure digital future?
In today’s digital age, the importance of cyber security cannot be overstated. It’s not just a choice; it’s an imperative, both for businesses and individuals. This importance led us to our new strategy, which was unveiled on the second day of the conference at the Global Cyber Summit Stage.
Unveiling Our New Strategy with Linda Smith
One of the highlights of the International Cyber Expo was the unveiling of our new strategy. It’s not just a document; it’s a roadmap to our shared digital future.
Since our launch in 2021, UKC3, backed by UK Government funding, has been diligently pursuing its core objectives, which are closely aligned with the UK’s National Cyber Strategy. These objectives revolve around enhancing cyber skills, fostering innovation, and expanding the cyber ecosystem.
We have been working tirelessly to establish partnerships among industry, academia, and local government, ensuring that opportunities and expertise are accessible across various regions. Acknowledging the significance of the UK’s Levelling Up agenda, we recognise that connected communities are crucial for driving unique economic impacts, especially in the rapidly evolving field of digital technologies and cyber security.
With the ever-present global cyber threats and the swift advancements in AI-based technologies, the need for constant evolution is evident. UKC3, through our fifteen recognised clusters, is determined to add value and respond effectively to market demands within the cyber sector. Acting as a central access point to the nationwide cyber ecosystem, UKC3’s strategy will not only promote the UK’s cyber industry on the global stage but also provide a framework for achieving these ambitious goals.
If you’d like to know more about our strategy and how you can actively engage with us, you can access it here. Join us on this exciting journey towards a more secure digital landscape.
Celebrating Innovation at ScotlandIS Pavilion
Our time at the ScotlandIS pavilion was nothing short of exhilarating. Supported by Scottish Enterprise, this platform allowed six innovative cyber companies to shine on the Tech Hub Stage.
This experience gave businesses the opportunity to present themselves to the hundreds of attendees, organisations, and potential investors at the expo. ScotlandIS held a competition inviting local companies to showcase their innovation for a chance to be a part of their pavilion.
A special congratulations to LastingAsset, SafeShark, HighGround, Cybernitics, Lupovis, and CyberShell Solutions Ltd. for their fantastic presentations. It’s clear that innovation is alive and thriving in the cyber world!
