About us

Where Cyber Security meets industry, innovation and talent.

We are an independent community that brings together cyber security companies, industry, academia and government to create an environment where cyber technology and innovation can thrive in Scotland.

Scotland is a pioneer in the cyber industry, with one of the most advanced cyber security education programmes in the world and an abundance of highly innovative cyber companies. Our cluster provides the capability, community and culture to drive the cyber industry forward. We connect talented cyber security minds with businesses seeking expertise, advice and services.

Our ecosystem of cyber security experts, businesses and academia have created new and innovative products and systems that are enabling and driving industry to reach new frontiers. We choreograph the relationship and community bringing together pioneering cyber companies with investors, industry and government creating wealth in Scotland.

Our vision

Our vision is for Scotland to be on the national and international Cyber Security stage as a centre for excellence and innovation. We promote Scotland all over the world as a fantastic place to set up and invest in Cyber Security businesses.

Our Mission

Our mission is to build a connected cyber community across Scotland, to drive growth and innovation in the cyber security industry in Scotland and to support the growing skills pipeline and the cyber security skills challenges.

We also seek to build strong UK and international relationships to support the promotion of the Scottish cyber security community both in Scotland, across the UK and internationally.

Educating for a future in cyber security

The Cyber Cluster works on behalf of the cyber community supporting its growth and innovation. To help set direction and steer the cyber cluster a Cyber Cluster advisory group has been set up.

This group meets quarterly and helps to ensure that the cyber cluster is focussed on the right activities to deliver the most impact to the cyber community.
