Take a look through the CIH Annual Report 2022/23 to explore the achievements and discover the opportunities that lie ahead.


Welcome to the inaugural annual report of the Wales Cyber Innovation Hub (CIH) as we mark the occasion in alignment with National Computer Security Day.

In the fast-evolving landscape of cyber security, this report reflects a year of remarkable strides, collaborative efforts, and a commitment to unleashing the potential of the Cardiff Capital Region to become a leading UK cyber security cluster.

The past 12 months have been a whirlwind of activity for CIH, with multiple initiatives driving our mission to grow a world-class pipeline of cyber security products, high-growth businesses, and technically skilled talent. CIH stands at the intersection of industry, academia, and government, fostering collaboration among these pillars to grow the region’s cyber security ecosystem.

At CIH, we operate with an open-door policy, inviting individuals and businesses from all sectors to engage with us. We believe in the power of collaboration and the collective effort needed to navigate the swiftly changing landscape of digital transformation. This report serves not only as a reflection of our achievements but also as an invitation for you to join us in shaping the future of cyber security.

National Computer Security Day serves as a poignant backdrop for our annual report launch. This day is more than a reminder of the threats that loom in cyberspace; it is a call to action for individuals and businesses to take ownership of their online presence and cyber security. We work closely with both businesses and the public sector to address market-driven innovation challenges. This collaborative effort accelerates the development of new, innovative solutions, enabling businesses to efficiently procure these solutions. We also offer affordable, bite-size training courses, ranging from introductions to cyber security to deepdive hands-on upskilling, preparing delegates to tackle the ever-evolving challenges of digital transformation with confidence.

A heartfelt thank you to our funders, the Welsh Government and Cardiff Capital Region for their investment and support to grow the sector. Together, we are shaping the region into one of the leading cyber security clusters, attracting local and global talent to contribute to our shared vision.

Special recognition goes to the CIH team, supporting institutions, partners, and supporters who have dedicated immense effort and energy to propel CIH through its inaugural year. The success of 2022/23 sets the stage for an exciting future, with 2024 focusing on upskilling individuals to work readiness and nurturing the next generation of cyber security ventures.

As we present the accomplishments and activities of the past year, this report also provides a glimpse into the future. CIH is committed to building a resilient cyber security sector that not only safeguards our digital assets but also fuels economic growth and creates high-value jobs for the local community.
