Who are Midlands Cyber?
Midlands Cyber are the Regional Cyber Security Cluster for the West Midlands, responsible for championing investment and cyber networking. Established in 2015 and originally funded by Midlands Engine and the Department for International Trade, the cluster has made strides regionally, nationally and internationally.
Midlands Cyber belongs to the ‘Cyber Valley’, a Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Malvern networking community. The valley is home to the highest concentration of cyber businesses in the UK outside of London- a statistic that is only set to grow with the continued innovation bought by one of the UK's first 5G testbeds.
A Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) between the Maryland Department of Commerce and Midlands Engine in the US provides a foundation to drive further international opportunity.
