A cyber security cluster for the East Midlands is being launched today at the UK Cyber Security Forum’s annual meeting. Founded by Nexor, a Nottingham-based cyber security company, it will enable members in the East Midlands region to meet up, network and share best practice.

Steve Kingan, CEO of Nexor, and a member of the UK Government’s Cyber Growth Partnership welcomed the news:

“The East Midlands has a myriad of companies, both large and small, involved in the cyber security industry and I’m delighted that Nexor can play its part in making the region a centre for cyber security.

“Over the last two years we have supported a number of events in association with the Institute of Information Security Professionals (IISP) and the East Midlands Chambers of Commerce to raise the profile of cyber security and build a regional network. This new initiative will help build upon this.”

UK Cyber Security Forum - East Midlands Cyber Security ClusterThe UK Cyber Security Forum represents SMEs who are actively working in cyber security across the UK. It is completely free to join and has nearly 300 members across the UK. It helps volunteers from the Forum to organise regular regional networking meetings, or “Cluster Meetings”, in their area.

The Forum also represents its members at a national level, highlighting barriers to growth and promoting SME capabilities. In addition it is a central contact for organisations who are looking for partners or suppliers from within the SME population.

Dr Emma Philpott, founder of the UK Cyber Security Forum, commented:

“We are delighted that Nexor has volunteered to run the East Midlands Cyber Security Cluster. There are some really exciting smaller Cyber companies in the region, including Nexor, and this will give them all further opportunities for networking, partnering and engagement on a national level”.

Plans are currently under way for a Cluster Meeting in the second half of April in the Leicester area. For more information on the cluster please contact
