Members to visit Hereford’s new cyber security centre
Speller Metcalfe’s Cyber Security Centre in Hereford
Midlands members are invited to join Speller Metcalfe for a visit to learn about the new Cyber Security Centre in Hereford. The mid-construction visit takes place on 8 October.
The centre, which will be located at Hereford Enterprise Zone’s Skylon Park, is being developed in partnership by the University of Wolverhampton and Herefordshire Council.
Constructed using cross laminated timber (CLT), the building has been designed to BIM Level 2 and to meet BREEAM Very Good certification.
The Cyber Security Centre will support three main areas:
- Accommodation for businesses working in the cyber security sector with potential space for up to 20 tenant businesses, creating 185 additional jobs for the county.
- Secure training and educational facilities to provide specialist cyber security training for businesses and organisations.
- A base for undertaking research in cyber security. The centre will have laboratories which will enable users to simulate cyber attacks and test responses in a secure environment.
PPE is required for this visit: hi-vis vest, trousers, hat and boots.
