Malvern online security firm learns how to beat attacks

A MALVERN online security firm was among a group of 12 UK businesses which travelled to Washington DC in a bid to combat cyber threats.

Deep-Secure, based on Sandy’s Road in Great Malvern, took the trip as part of a scheme aimed at getting more British cyber security businesses in America.

The Prime Minister David Cameron was in the US for talks with President Barack Obama and internet safety was high on the agenda as the Government steps up its effort to halt any threat against the industry.

An updated security guide, a new report detailing common attacks and funding for a new ‘Pre-Accelerator’ programme were a selection of the plans drawn up to try and stop online attacks.




Mr Cameron said: “The UK is already leading the way in cyber security and this government is committed to ensuring it continues to be a leader in this multi-billion dollar industry.

“That is why on this trip I have been showcasing some of the leading UK cyber security small business, some of whom are already beating off the competition and opening offices and securing contracts in the US.


“We need to make sure the UK remains one of the most cyber secure places in the world to do business.”

Deep-Secure, which has a track record for helping organisations in defence and security, were not the only county representatives across the pond as Worcester firm Titania, who are members of the Malvern Cyber Security Cluster, also made the trip.

Ian Whiting, Titania CEO, added: “The cyber security industry is expanding at a very fast-pace currently and it is coming to represent a strong segment in British international trade.

“The Malvern Cluster has been a true support line for many of the technological businesses in the Worcestershire area by offering a free flow of ideas and a supportive voice for SMEs in the Government.”
