The Marches, Gloucestershire, Swindon & Wiltshire and Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnerships (working together as the Cyber Resilience Alliance) have commissioned a Cyber Security Science and Innovation Audit (being facilitated by RSM Economic Consulting).

Science and Innovation Audits seek to understand a region’s economic, science, and innovation strengths, and combine national data sets with an “on the ground” view based on local data, knowledge and experience. They also relate these to a national and international context. This evidence will help underpin future investment decisions, foster local collaboration and strengthen future bids for local investment from public and private sources.

As part of this exercise, input from organisations like yours is essential to make sure that the SIA captures the strengths of the region, and can best meet your needs. This survey shouldn’t take more than ten minutes of your time.

Please use the link provided to access the survey: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/Cyber_Alliance_SIA_Survey/

If you choose to take part, you will receive a copy of the region’s Science and Innovation Audit (SIA) report, which will give your organisation detailed information on current and future funding sources, the region’s research and development strengths and the future direction of local industrial policy.

Please note that we comply fully with the Data Protection Act 1998, and adhere to the Market Research Society’s Code of Practice. As such, your information will be held securely, and your responses will be anonymised unless you consent otherwise.

Thanks for your feedback,

The Cyber Resilience Alliance SIA team
