We embrace the wide-ranging expertise and specialities of our members to deliver the collective mission of driving greater cyber security skills and awareness across all business and industry sectors throughout the region.

Our vision, is to establish a ‘centre for Cyber Excellence’ in the South West. A centre that would be a genuine reference point for cyber best practice, not just for the region, but also nationally – attracting commercial resources and investment to the centre and the region, ensuring real and tangible social value whilst helping to safeguard local people, local businesses and local communities.”
