60 businesses attend ‘Future of Cyber in the Midlands’ event

Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP)  and Midlands Cyber hosted a French cyber delegation and the Midlands Cyber network at Malvern Hills Science Park for their ‘Future of Cyber in the Midlands ‘ event on Tuesday 13 November.

The event focused on the importance of cyber technology for the region along with the many benefits that the location has to offer to cyber businesses looking to relocate.

Businesses also got to hear from QinetiQ, GCHQ, and the 5G test bed team along with deep dive sessions where attendees could discuss and discover more about commercial opportunities and Worcestershire’s new tech accelerator BetaDen.

Stuart Emmerson, Invest in Worcestershire Manager at Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership said: “We were delighted to attract around 70 attendees to our event at Malvern Hills Science Park.  The French cyber delegation were keen to learn more about Worcestershire’s outstanding reputation for producing and attracting dynamic cyber companies. They were deeply impressed by the quality of firms and opportunities to access the lucrative Midlands market. The UK is the largest, most concentrated and accessible cyber-security market in Europe, worth more than £25 billion and Worcestershire is at the heart of this opportunity.”
