Based in Brighton, the Sussex Cyber Security Cluster was launched in November 2014. Originally called ‘Brighton Cyber Security Cluster’, it immediately expanded to ‘Sussex’ and as registrations for events started appearing from across the South East region, expansion to the ‘South East Cyber Security Cluster’ was a natural progression.

According to Tech City’s Tech Nation 2016 report, Brighton has “one of the most dense populations of digital tech businesses in the UK and the largest digital workforce within non-digital industries.” providing ample scope to enhance the region’s cyber security capabilities whilst enabling businesses and citizens to be safe in cyber space.

What is the South East Cyber Security Cluster?

SECSC is a not-for-profit organisation representing cyber security specialists in the South East. Based in Brighton, the original Sussex Cyber Security Cluster was launched in November 2014, expanding to the South East on its one year anniversary in 2015.

According to Tech City’s Tech Nation 2016 report, Brighton has “one of the most dense populations of digital tech businesses in the UK and the largest digital workforce within non-digital industries.” providing ample scope to enhance the region’s cyber security capabilities whilst enabling businesses and citizens to be safe in cyber space.

  • What is cyber security and how does it affect me?
  • How will I know if someone has hacked my business IT system?
  • Is it just scaremongering or is it real?
  • How much does it cost to secure my business?
  • If I’m hacked who should I report it to?
  • If I’m hacked who can I turn to for credible advice?
