Due to our association with the new Cyber Quarter in Hereford we were invited along to meet Robert Jenrick, the Secretary of State for House, Communities and Local Government on his recent visit to this trail blazing centre!
The new Cyber Quarter based in Skylon Park, Rotherwas in Hereford, is a new £9million state of the art Cyber Centre for the Midlands and is in collaboration with the University of Wolverhampton and Herefordshire Council and is part-funded by the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
The 2,000 square metre building, with its stunning glass atrium and warm wooden structure will provide significant resources for research and development across three cyber laboratories, advanced training facilities as part of the WCRI and additional business space for up to 16 cyber companies.
It includes State-of-the-art office space, training and research facilities and aims to provide:
Cyber Security Research & Development and Consultancy
Cyber Security Testing and Certifications
Cyber Security Incubator and Accelerator
Cyber Security CPD Training and Short Courses
Cyber Security Events
The aim of the centre is to tackle the growing threat of cyber attacks which could significantly impact local, regional and national businesses.
