The two organisations will facilitate a number of opportunities for cyber clusters to share knowledge and add value to cyber and technology innovators across HCR’s regional reach in England and Wales. The programme follows on from previous events where HCR shared legal expertise on topics including investor-readiness and employment.

Tim Atkins, Head of Partnerships at CyNam said: “CyNam’s primary aim is to help create the conditions for local cyber and emerging technology innovation, thus driving economic growth in Gloucestershire. HCR’s support is a big step towards achieving this. By offering specialist expertise for cyber companies on the full range of legal services, our community will be more informed about how to navigate the legal landscape. In addition, this partnership will further catalyse growth and innovation within the nationwide cyber ecosystem through the enrichment provided by jointly hosted pan-cluster events.”

Nicola McNeely, Head of Technology at HCR said: “We’re delighted to partner with CyNam on this initiative and see real value in finding ways to foster collaboration, skills and knowledge transfer between cyber clusters. The programme aligns with our vision of supporting technology companies and innovators to grow their businesses.”

Details of events and initiatives for cyber clusters will be announced in the coming weeks.
