Informing the Government Review into Cyber Security & Economic Growth

We were delighted to welcome 50 representatives from across the UK’s cybersecurity sector to join us for our inaugural event on at Clarity, Zetland House, London.

Attendees heard from Stephen McPartland MP, who shared insights on the Government review into how cyber security can enable economic growth, as well as a number of other notable stakeholders from the cybersecurity sector, including:

It was a fantastic evening the had the UK’s sector at the heart of the discussion, with a general consensus that our sector needs to be seen as an economic enabler and growth area if the UK wants to sustain its position as a technology ‘superpower.’

“With over 99% of UK businesses classified as SMEs, cybersecurity must be simplified to ensure safety throughout the supply chains. It’s time to change the narrative around cybersecurity, viewing it not just as a security measure, but as a driver for resilience, trust, job creation and, ultimately, as an enabler of growth,” noted McPartland.

 “As a nation, we need to think more openly about marketing cyber initiatives and UK excellence in cyber, and highlighting these carefully through cybersecurity strategy to proactively drive change in the cybersecurity sector. The CBN will be an instrumental network for UK cybersecurity businesses, acting as a conduit for supporting political cut through,” said Imogen Frearson, Government Engagement Lead and Head of Marketing at Garrison Technology.

CBN has evolved from the former Transatlantic Cyber Security Business Network (TCBN), which has been rebranded and restructured to tailor our services to a predominantly UK membership, and in so doing widen the scope of work we deliver.

Our new mission as CBN is to bring together cybersecurity companies to network, learn and debate across three key pillars — trade and export, policy, and market insights. Our members will be enabled to promote their cybersecurity expertise and capabilities, strategically engage with key stakeholders and develop lasting relationships in key verticals, in a wider effort to influence government policy and promote innovation in the sector.
