Manchester to Bolster UK’s Cybersecurity

The only UK Government-hosted event for the cybersecurity sector, CYBERUK 2018, took place earlier this month at Manchester Central and attracted around 1,500 delegates to the city, including key players in government, academia, and industry.

The event coincided with the announcement of the creation of a new GCHQ intelligence facility in Manchester, due to open in 2019, to support GCHQ’s work to identify and disrupt threats to the UK. The Manchester site will extend the network of sites in the UK operated by the UK Government’s intelligence, security and cyber agency.

Hundreds of high calibre jobs are expected to be created by the new offices, adding Manchester to the list of cities helping the country to counter online and real-world threat.
