Cyber Exchange was originally developed in 2016, to map the UK cyber sector and give companies a platform to raise
their profile within the community. The platform is run in partnership between DCMS and techUK.
How we support the UK Cyber Security Sector
The UK cyber security sector is regarded as one of the world’s leading, producing cutting edge cyber-capabilities
and boasting rapid growth year-on-year. The most recent Government research suggests that there are 1,483 cyber
security companies active in the UK, with a total revenue of over £8.9bn, employing around 46,700 full time
employees. The UK retains a mature and innovative cyber landscape within the UK, seeing new and established UK cyber
security companies grow year-on-year. Cyber Exchange exists to help organisations navigate and understand the
sector, whilst disseminating key information on both Government and industry events, reports and news articles.
