#CyberGlos

With the UK’s growing cyber industry attracting record investment and Cheltenham being hailed as the burgeoning ‘cyber capital of the UK’, there couldn’t be a better time to launch SoGlos’s new #CyberGlos campaign - championing Gloucestershire’s key role in cyber and the future of this diverse and exciting sector in the county.

From June to November 2021, SoGlos journalists will be showcasing cyber stories from across Gloucestershire – from innovative start-ups tackling cyber challenges head-on to the wealth of cyber training and cyber employment opportunities available in the county, as well as breaking the latest cyber news stories in Gloucestershire – including those on The Golden Valley Development in Cheltenham, home to Cyber Central, the UK’s focal point of activity in cyber security.

#CyberGlos is proudly supported by Salus Cyber, Charles Russell Speechlys and the University of Gloucestershire, three innovative organisations at the forefront of the UK’s booming cyber sector.

In association with:
