March 2014

The UK Government has announced a new scheme that enables UK cyber security suppliers to government to be able to reference this fact publicly, for example when pursuing business overseas.

The scheme has been developed by the Cyber Growth Partnership, a joint initiative between industry, academia and government, aimed at boosting the UK’s global market position in cyber security products and services.

As a founding member of the Cyber Growth Partnership, Nexor was heavily involved in the creation of the scheme. Our CEO, Steve Kingan, led the initial industry proposal alongside the main UK ICT trade association industry, TechUK. The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (DBIS) subsequently fine-tuned the scheme and Nexor was proud to be a pilot organisation in testing its suitability.

Steve adds:
“I’m delighted that Nexor had the opportunity to be involved in the creation of this new scheme that will be an aid to the whole UK cyber security sector. At Nexor we will be highlighting our acceptance on to the scheme in our future publicity to reflect the extensive use of our cyber security solutions across UK Government departments.”

Nexor will also be represented at tonight’s Cyber Growth Partnership Reception hosted by techUK to mark the first year of the partnership. Now fully booked the partnership’s co-chairs, Rt Hon David Willetts MP (Minister of State for Universities and Science) and Gavin Patterson (CEO, BT) will be updating techUK members on progress.

Further information on how Nexor provides cyber security services and solutions is available across this website.
