Norfolk & Suffolk Businesses – Register

The Norfolk and Suffolk Cyber Security Cluster ( has been formed – kick off in Q1 2019 – to bring the idea of cyber security to local businesses and is looking for finance, sponsors, facilities, supporters, local business leaders, students, colleges to help!

The Norfolk and Suffolk Cyber Security Cluster ( has been formed (under the umbrella of the UK Cyber Security Forum) by David Higgins (4ITSec Cyber Security Services), Darren Chapman (Cyberscale) and Paul Maskall (Jungo).

The aim of the Cluster is to support the membership by communicating National and International cyber security initiatives, producing educational lectures on specific cyber security and business issues along with providing trade opportunities between the member businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk. The cluster will also provide a networking platform to share ideas and best security practice within the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk and additionally encouraging collaboration and partnership opportunities so that SME’s can find new ways to grow and be secure

Supporting Norfolk and Suffolk County Council’s commitment to Cyber Security (and UK Government’s Cyber Security Strategy) and local businesses by building and sharing cyber security knowledge, skills and capabilities in the region, to make businesses more resilient to cyber-attacks and attract inward investment to East Anglia.

Working alongside the local Universities and colleges, we’d aim to have input from and output to the local student and lecturer population; a tie-up with local course providers in IT and Cyber Security would be a huge benefit to all parties and would hope to build bridges or apprenticeship opportunities for the students and local business.

The Cluster will be FREE to join for an SME company member and meetings will be run on a bi-monthly basis with a nominal fee to cover expenses.

Membership itself simply means being added to the Cluster’s distribution lists for details of meetings and the dissemination of information and opportunities from the UK Cyber Security Forum, Local Government and other Cluster members.

Occasionally there will be special interest group presentations which will be “paid for” events and open to a wider audience

The Norfolk and Suffolk Cluster is registered as a Community Interest Company and the proposed first meeting will be planned for early 2019 and hopefully be supported by all the local government business units, Chamber of Commerce offices, Norfolk & Suffolk Constabulary plus other specialised groups.
