“I was delighted to sponsor CyNam for a number of reasons. First and foremost it got us in front of a number of potential clients and it got us publicity – neither of which is anything but good. That’s the commercial argument done. Second, and for me very importantly, it’s just the sort of initiative we as a country and as an economy need. Cyber Security affects us all, from the simple leakage of our personal data to the safety and security of the NHS. We need communities of action, skilled people working together and the exchange of ideas and information if we are to succeed in our fightback. I am often asked if the ever-increasing list of competitors worries me; it really doesn’t. Cyber is a team sport, and CyNam is a part of that”

Malcolm Taylor, ITC Secure
