Written by Mon 20 Nov 2023

The National Cyber Force (NCF) has announced the Lancashire Cyber Partnership to shape, support, and promote the region’s cyber ecosystem. 

The NCF is a collaboration between Defence and Intelligence and is set to open its new home in Samlesbury in 2025. This partnership will also see the NCF collaborate with academic institutions and industry. 

The move will help create jobs in the region across technology and digital supply chains, whilst also enhancing and supporting the North West Cyber Corridor.

“Working alongside our colleagues in the region, the Lancashire Cyber Partnership will further support the development of an integrated and collaborative North West Cyber Corridor, helping us to achieve the objectives outlined in the Government’s National Cyber Strategy,” said Air Vice-Marshal Tim Neal-Hopes, Commander of the National Cyber Force.

Alongside the NCF, partners include the Lancashire County Council; the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership; and the University of Central Lancashire, among others.

“This partnership and opportunity will ensure that Lancashire is uniquely placed to further establish its role as a national leader for cyber and security-related capabilities, delivering enduring security, resilience, and prosperity for the nation,” said Neal-Hopes.
