We're delighted to announce Fortium are part of Tech Nation's inaugural Cyber growth programme. Foritum were selected as one of the Top 20 Cyber Security companies within the UK.
Funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and supported by global cyber security market-leaders Tessian, Digital Shadows, Darktrace and CensorNet, the six-month programme is aimed at helping to accelerate the growth of the UK’s most exciting cyber security businesses.
The breadth of innovation and application amongst the 20-strong cohort is testament to the UK's world-leading cyber security and broader technology sectors. From machine learning and blockchain, to encryption and cloud solutions, the Tech Nation Cyber cohort are utilising bleeding-edge technologies to offer clients new ways to improve security, and protect businesses and individuals online.
Following the call for applications in February, the successful cohort was chosen by a panel of expert judges from the public and private sector. The judges assessed applicants against their growth record to date, current scaling plans and expertise, and long-term business potential (both nationally and internationally).
Kevin Foster, UK Government Minister for Wales, commented: “Cyber security represents an increasingly important part of our daily lives, and Wales already plays a leading role in keeping our data and systems safe while training up the next generation of experts. This programme will initially support two Welsh companies in Caerphilly and Cardiff in developing their potential and I look forward to seeing other companies from across Wales getting involved in the future.”
