Greater Manchester Cyber Foundry : Launch Event

Greater Manchester Cyber Foundry is a £6m scheme that can help you to secure, strengthen and grow your business by providing you with access to specialist equipment and sector-leading experts.

Join us for the launch of this unique collaboration between Lancaster University, Manchester Metropolitan University, The University of Manchester and The University of Salford.

The four universities will partner with local SMEs to deliver a £6 million, European Regional Development Funded business support project over the next three years.

Cyber-attacks pose an £860m risk to the region’s businesses each year according to estimates by the Lloyds City Risk Register. The GM Cyber Foundry aims to combat these threats by combining expertise and research in Cyber Security to create new products and services for SMEs.

This exciting new programme provides all businesses (not just cyber-tech companies) with the opportunity to:

  • Assess their current business model
  • Investigate the potential for cyber security to support business growth and productivity through:
    - Defence
    - Market differentiation
    - Diversification
  • Develop growth strategies utilising cyber security
  • Receive technical assistance (if eligible) from experts in cyber security

At this launch event you will have the opportunity to hear from cyber security experts from the worlds of business and academia, see live demonstrations of technologies and network with industry experts.

Register now to discover how we're strengthening and supporting the growth of Greater Manchester's businesses.
