Four universities sharing cyber security expertise to grow Greater Manchester businesses.
We believe that cyber security innovation, technology and practices can grow SMEs.
From online shopping to web pages, we're using digital technologies more than ever before. And these technologies can help to grow our businesses.
Whatever your business, Greater Manchester Cyber Foundry can help to improve your cyber operation.
Help us to use the universities' cyber security research to innovate and design new products and services.
Did you know? Cyber attacks pose an £860m risk to the region's businesses each year*.
If we use electronic data, systems and networks, we need cyber security. This is because we're processing an increasing amount of sensitive and personal data. We might store our customers' credit card details so they can make payments faster, for example. Or, our employees' National Insurance numbers for their salaries.
Cyber security allows us to create a safer virtual environment to do business with our customers. Digitally secure operations, supported by cyber innovation, will help deliver growth and productivity.
