The Welsh Government, with support from the Department of International Trade at the British Embassy to Belgium is organising a Wales Cyber Trade Mission in Brussels.

Wales is the largest cyber security hub in Europe home to over 3,000 home-grown and multinational tech companies, including some of the big names such as BT, Thales, Qinetiq, Airbus Defence & Space and General Dynamics.

The Welsh Government will be welcoming a Cyber Trade Delegation of around 15 companies, and academic representatives from leading Welsh Universities in the domain of Cyber. Throughout the day, they will be receiving briefings from the Belgian Cyber Security Cluster, LSEC and CYBERHIVE, the cyber security program of B-Hive, the Belgian European tech platform.

From the EU side, Sir Julian King, European Commissioner for the Security Union will express his views on the security necessities in Europe and from NATO, a representative of the NATO Communications and Information Agency will expand on their upcoming cyber projects within his Agency.
