Got a cyber idea that you’d like to bring to life? Respond to one of our challenges

Industry tailored solutions

At the Cyber Innovation Hub, we understand that businesses today face ever-evolving cyber threats that can disrupt operations, compromise sensitive data, and damage reputations. Whether you're a manufacturing company, public sector organisation, financial institution, food and drink producer, healthcare provider, or a technology startup, your unique operations and data make you potential targets for cyberattacks. That's why our services are tailored to address the specific needs of your industry.

What type of organisations are vulnerable to cyber threats?

  • You may hold a large customer database with personally identifiable information and financial details. Safeguarding this sensitive data is crucial to maintaining customer trust.

  • You may be involved with cutting-edge research and development. This valuable intellectual property can be a prime target for cybercriminals looking to sell the information on the dark web.

  • You may operate critical infrastructure, such as power plants, transportation systems, and healthcare facilities. These critical services attract cyber threats aimed at disrupting operations and causing widespread chaos.

  • You may be engaged in online retail and face the risk of payment card data theft. Cybercriminals often target e-commerce platforms to steal customer information or conduct unauthorised transactions.

  • You may work closely with government agencies and are exposed to additional cybersecurity risks. Cyberattacks against these suppliers can compromise sensitive government data, disrupt government operations, and undermine national security.

  • You may have global operations and extensive supply chains are more susceptible to cyber threats. The interconnected nature of these businesses increases the potential attack surface for cybercriminals.
