What CyberNorth Does
CyberNorth spearheads the growth of a thriving cyber security community in the North East of England and is a key contributor to the UK’s overall cyber strategy through our partnership with UKC3.
We do this by promoting all things cyber, especially in the North East to ensure we’re getting noticed internationally and nationally, and by focusing on strengthening the development of three main areas in the region.
We call these our Pillars and they are:
- Skills – for today and tomorrow
- Innovation – future proofing the sector for prosperity
- Ecosystem – support and collaboration for growth
Our goal with these Pillars is to create opportunities to bring the sector together, encourage progressive collaboration and to help establish the region as a centre of excellence for the cyber security industry.

All are welcome.
