THE EAST REGION’S LEADING CYBER CLUSTER

OUR PURPOSE

Cyber East is an industry body that works alongside the UK Government to develop the cyber security industry in the UK. Our aim is to partner with cyber security businesses in the East of England and provide a platform for collaboration and growth within the Cyber Security industry.

Alongside this we focus on providing support to local businesses who need to increase their cyber security knowledge and need support & signposting. In order to share knowledge, skills, and capabilities across the region we are actively building a network of partnerships with a range of organisations working across academia, research, training and innovation in the Cyber industry.

As an integral part of the UK’s cyber ecosystem, our mission is to help businesses become more resilient against cybercrime and attract inward investment in the East Anglia area.
