B-Hive and Cyber Wales have signed a Memorandum of Understanding that will allow them to collaborate and cooperate through areas of mutual interest, specifically in the area of cybersecurity.
The MoU was signed during the Welsh Cyber Trade Mission to Brussels by John Davies of Cyber Wales and Patrick Coomans of B-Hive in the presence of Sir Julian King, Security Commissioner of the European Union, and Mark Drakeford, Welsh Government Cabinet Secretary for Finance. The MoU states that both organizations mutually agree on the expediency of further cooperation in several areas, including a mutual exchange of trends, research and more.
The event featured pitches from several top cybersecurity companies from the region, as well as a presentation from B-Hive’s Executive Chairman Fabian Vandenreydt on our CyberHive program and its current initiatives.
Collaborating with Cyber Wales is an exciting start to a strong relationship with the emerging cybersecurity ecosystem in Wales, and we greatly look forward to working together.
B-Hive will continue building on this and set up even more international business missions to the region to get the interaction open and active this year through our Roadshow.
Fabian Vandenreydt, Executive Chairman of B-Hive, said, "As B-Hive aims to work directly with European organizations in order to make the region stronger, we greatly look forward to working together on extending not only our knowledge sharing, but also our network through mutual collaboration.”
