UK Cyber Security Forum
The UK Cyber Security Forum is a social enterprise representing sole traders and small & medium companies (SMEs) who are actively working in cyber security.
As a qualifying SME, it is completely free to join the Forum, and we now have more than 500 such Core Members across the country. We also have a membership category for other companies that are not cyber security SMEs. You can see more details here, and if you'd like to apply to become a member, please contact us directly.
Cyber Security Clusters
The Forum facilitates a number of Cyber Security Clusters around the UK by working with a network of local volunteer champions. These groups organise cluster meetings and events for Members in their vicinity, helping Members to network, share best practice and hear about new opportunities. You can see the locations of the current Clusters here.
Members of the UK Cyber Security Forum can interact within our online collaboration portal called CyberCollaborate™. It has been designed in partnership with member company Pervade Softwate to revolutionise the way that cyber security capability is sourced and contracted. Cyber security companies can provide details and specify which member organisations and geographical locations can view their profile. The platform also hosts virtual special interest groups to share information on specific topics of interest or to collaborate on commercial projects. More details about getting started in the portal are provided here.
Organisations increasingly recognise the benefit of working with flexible, innovative and responsive SMEs. In the cyber security sector, there is the added benefit that many technology specialists have chosen to work on their own or in small companies. One of the biggest challenges is finding the right capability to match your requirement and also knowing that company is legitimate. The UK Cyber Security Forum offers a service to facilitate this process and connect you (or members of your supply chain) with cyber security specialists that have a close match with your needs.
