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
DSIT 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
