One of the heads of a trailblazing North East company that is creating the next generation of cyber security will be sharing his story at a special event next week (Sept 22).

Ed Bartlett, CEO of Hicomply, is one of a handful of companies taking part in a session at #CyberFest North East which is showcasing how the region is innovating in the world of cyber security.

Hicomply provides software solutions to companies across the UK and internationally to build an ISMS (information security management system) as well as protecting their business data.

The platform helps clients towards ISO 27001 certification and other key standards, along with a range of other benefits including formalising and improving information security programs, increasing operational efficiency and managing data breaches.

Ed will be taking part in an online session running from 4pm -5pm on Wednesday, as part of the A Region of Growing Cyber Security Innovation segment.

“It’s a great honour to be asked to take part in this exciting session along with other colleagues from this sector,” he said.

“The North East is really innovative when it comes to cyber security and creating new solutions that can have a really positive impact on businesses not just locally but regionally and nationally.”

It is part of the month-long CyberFest event organised by Dynamo North East, set up to grow the region’s economy.
