Everyone knows that Cyber security is an issue – government, businesses and individuals rely on the Internet and IT systems, and have come to realise they are at more at risk from Cyber attacks.
These attacks are becoming increasingly more sophisticated and stealthy, targeting people, networks and devices. There are many questions, and not enough answers.
With this in mind, the UK Cyber Security Association exists to break down the barriers between all areas of cyber security.
The association is for anyone who is interested in Cyber Security Issues. You could be an individual who is interested in getting a job in the industry to a large corporation who needs help and assistance to protect themselves from cyber threats.
The UK Cyber Security Association will work to a clear vision, mission and set of objectives that ensures best practice and information assimilation and sharing from the cyber security industry in the UK and internationally. This will be shared through our members and strong community to help with keeping the UK safe from the growing cyber threat.
The primary focus of the UK Cyber Security Association will be on building a strong community of individuals and organisations who actively work in the cyber security industry both in the UK and internationally to share best practice and to collaborate when it comes to the growing cyber threat and combatting it.
We will also raise awareness of the growing cyber threat though proactive thought leadership and education/training that focuses on how individuals and organisations can protect themselves as much as possible from cyber crime and all types of online and offline fraud.
“To build a strong community in cyber security to educate as many individuals and organisations as possible, whatever their size and wherever they are in the world, as to the importance of the growing cyber threat, and to provide practical steps and key information to help them stay safe online and be more cyber secure in everything that they do.”
“To become a leading community and membership organisation in the cyber security space, to campaign to raise awareness of the growing cyber threat for small businesses, SMEs, enterprise/corporate companies and the general public both in the UK and internationally, and to raise awareness of key issues and threats in the cyber security space.”
The UK Cyber Security Association is run by CEO & Founder Lisa Ventura, and a strong team of cyber security industry professionals. The work of the association is overseen through various working groups in the following areas:
Since our CEO & Founder had the idea to create the UK Cyber Security Association it has been in an expressions of interest phrase to see if there is a need and desire for an organisation to provide these services. The response during the expressions of interest stage was overwhelming, and we are now officially open for membership. Our launch day will be Tuesday 4th May 2021 – Star Wars Day.
Although we were not open for membership until April 2021, Lisa Ventura and her team undertook work in key projects in the cyber security industry through the association including:
We have already worked on a number of key campaigns within the cyber security industry including:
We will continue to work on these campaigns as we grow and develop.
Why indeed? Well the answer to this and how we intend to operate are both the same. Keep it simple.
Most of the organisations currently formed are very specific and are generally business to business orientated. This serves the required purpose, but these organisations are isolated with other similar organisations as they are in competition with each other.
The UK Cyber Security Association believes there is a greater good in working together, which would allow the industry to grow quicker rather than businesses and individuals working on the same issues in isolation.
This would also help the UK as a whole to regain its world leader status.
The walls need to be broken down, and all areas of the Cyber Security industry should act as one when dealing with the ever increasing number of Cyber threats to the UK.
