For Manchester to continue to gain recognition as a leading tech hub, support must be given to the region’s cyber security sector. 

As well as supporting the considerable number of cyber security businesses within the region by raising their profile supporting their recruitment, Manchester Digital are working with both DCMS and Greater Manchester Police to ensure that an infrastructure is in place that will support this important sector of our digital economy.

How we support the sector?

Manchester Digital, in a joint venture with Greater Manchester Police, have launched The Cyber Resilience Centre – an organisation that will deliver cyber security advice and services that aim to rescue and rebuild businesses that could be at risk from, or have suffered a cyber attack.

We believe this work, as well as helping businesses across the region, will support the capability and development of the cyber sector in greater Manchester by improving the volume of reported attacks and directing support to the cyber security businesses in the region.

If you would like to discuss how your business may be suited to partnering with The Cyber Resilience Centre, email us at info@manchesterdigital.com

Following the event we’ll use this information to inform both our policy and lobbying work at regional and national level as well as delivering some impactful tactical projects and initiatives.

Manchester Digital’s work in the sector includes:

  • Raising the profile of the work being done in our region

  • Showcasing the work emanating from the sector via events and speaking opportunities

  • Providing regular cyber security-focused networking opportunities 

  • Offering marketing and PR support

  • Representing the sector in conversations with government (both locally and nationally) 

  • Making valuable introductions to investors, other business or universities
