Business News Wales Launches Dedicated Cyber Security Section


Business News Wales, are pleased to announce the launch of a new Cyber Security section in partnership with CyberLaw, which has been developed to raise awareness of the threats and opportunities this new industry offers to businesses in Wales.

Many companies are not fully prepared for the threat or the reality of cybercrime and with the professional advice of, CyberLaw, Business News Wales will highlight key issues and give advice on a wide variety of cybercrime topics that are likely to affect businesses in the coming months.

Stephen Jones, Managing Director, of CyberLaw Says;

“We are delighted to have partnered with Business News Wales to raise awareness of the dangers individuals and businesses face daily in relation to Cyber Security.  Furthermore, as one of the leading cyber law firms in the UK, we feel a great sense of responsibility to raise awareness and help promote the message that the cyber industry offers fantastic opportunities for Wales and particularly for a talented new generation of businessmen and businesswomen.

In conjunction with Business News Wales, we can promote awareness in relation to all aspects of cyber, including the opportunities and threats that face Welsh businesses.  Additionally, we strive to work with the Welsh Government to help promote Wales as the place to come and do business specifically within the cyber community”.

Mark Powney, Managing Director, Business Wales, concludes;

“Cyber Security is an issue every business needs to be aware of, regardless of its size. The SME market  needs to be especially vigilant. To be able to offer support and guidance, with the support of CyberLaw, is a great opportunity to raise awareness and help businesses protect themselves from a variety of online threats. We are living in a digital age and subjects such as this can’t be avoided.”

In Wales we have a fantastic opportunity to stay ahead of the curve within the Cyber Security space and I believe it’s a great opportunity for our naturally digitally skilled young workforce to develop a career within this new fast growing industry. Expect to see an abundance of recruitment and training initiatives launch in the coming months from those Welsh businesses who have already spotted a gap in this market”.
