Cyber Security

The National Cyber Security Centre’s (NCSC) definition of cyber security’s core function is to protect the devices we all use, and the services we access from theft or damage and preventing unauthorised access to personal information we store on these devices, and online.

Our people use their deep expertise to support organisations in cyber security ranging from early stage startups seeking funding to well-established businesses looking for collaborations. Many of these organisations are also interested in ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) and Internet of Things (IoT). By helping innovators in this space collaborate and create powerful connections, we accelerate ideas into real-world solutions.

The Digital team is also involved in helping academic teams commercialise cybersecurity ideas. To find out more, visit CyberASAP and register your interest.
