Partnership between Hub8 and CyNam develops

Recently we announced the forthcoming launch of the Hub8 co-working space for cyber technology, located in Cheltenham’s Brewery Quarter. As well as a place to where cyber security SMEs and major players can collaborate, it will also become a physical home for the CyNam team.

To reflect the deepening of the partnership between CyNam and Hub8, Paul Bentham, who sits on CyNam’s board of directors, has joined Hub8 as a Non-Executive Director. We believe that this greater synergy between the two organisations will improve our ability to serve and nurture the CyNam community.
