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 Urquhart-Dykes & Lord LLP and Pervade Software Ltd.

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.

Our April meeting will be hosted by Cardiff and Vale College. Having visited the National Cyber Security Academy and the Computer Forensic Labs of the University of South Wales, we have learnt a lot about under-graduate and post-graduate degree courses in IT but this is not the only source of skilled and motivated people to fill the skills gap in our industry - College students are studying Diploma courses in IT Networking & System Support and Software Development.

We are going to be hosted in the brand new City Centre Campus, a landmark new build, 5 minutes from the train station, opened officially by the First Minister in October.
