It was recently announced that the UK Cyber Cluster Collaboration (UKC3) will be awarded £700,000 in funds to continue its work.
The UKC3 is a network of 20 regional clusters of security businesses, employers, and organizations that was established in 2021. It aims to promote innovation and skills development around cybersecurity and offer a single contact point for industry stakeholder engagement.
These funds, awarded by the Department for digital, culture media, and sports, will be used to provide networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities as well as develop skills, innovation, and collaboration on security issues. The goal is to take the UK cybersecurity sector to the next level.
This should help drive the cyber industry forward and encourage businesses to engage more with UKC3, to create an open, inclusive and professional cybersecurity culture.
