Sopra Steria has announced a new strategic partnership with CyNam, a key integrator connecting players within the UK's cyber industry.
CyNam, a community interest company, brings together global technology players with SMEs and pioneering start-ups to enable the growth and development of Gloucestershire’s flourishing cyber technology ecosystem.
Sustainability is at the heart of everything Sopra Steria and CyNam value and do, with both organisations committed to values-driven business practices and making positive impact on the economy, society and the environment.
Sopra Steria’s support will help to further CyNam’s cyber skills and growth objectives, both funding a new role to invest in Gloucestershire’s skills development and providing a platform to promote the value of apprenticeship programmes
to its cyber community.
As well as supporting CyNam’s mission to nurture local talent, Sopra Steria will play a central role in CyNam's landmark October event, hold its own roundtable session for the community and jointly produce thought leadership content to benefit the
cyber technology ecosystem in Gloucestershire and beyond.
Sue-Ellen Wright, Managing Director of Sopra Steria's Aerospace, Defence and Security business, commented:
"CyNam's promotion of home-grown cyber talent is a really important endeavour that we wholeheartedly champion at Sopra Steria through our UK talent programmes. We look forward to supporting CyNam's mission, which ultimately serves to benefit our communities
and protect our national interest."
Madeline Howard, Chair and Director of CyNam, commented:
"We’re absolutely delighted Sopra Steria are continuing to support CyNam. They have been excellent partner for the last few years in supporting our strategic initiatives and have enabled us to do some great work for our community. We’re
excited to be continuing our journey together and are looking forward to see what we can achieve."
