Defend, Innovate, Grow.
Preparing businesses across Greater Manchester for the digital future.
The Greater Manchester Cyber Foundry is a programme for small-medium sized businesses to help with business growth, stability and security. The programme is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and there is no cost for participating businesses/business owners.
We are a partnership of four universities from the North West: Lancaster University, The University of Manchester, University of Salford and Manchester Metropolitan University.
Together we are using our expertise to help defend, innovate and grow businesses in Greater Manchester. Our focus is to help SMEs protect their operations and assets along with strengthening their cyber defences.
How is the Foundry impacting the cyber security ecosystem across Greater Manchester?
The Greater Manchester Cyber Foundry launched in 2018 and over the three years so far the programme has supported:
- 135 SMEs to prepare for a digital future
- the development of 46 new products and services
