The Global Ecosystem of Ecosystems Partnership in Innovation and Cybersecurity (Global EPIC) today welcomed the Siberkume (Turkish Cyber Security Cluster) – Turkey as its 23rd partner in this rapidly expanding global initiative.
 
Global EPIC partners are co-creating and adopting world-changing solutions to high-impact cybersecurity challenges, both current and emergent. They also combine their knowledge, experience and expertise, together to deliver soft landing programmes for cyber security SME’s seeking to access new markets, develop innovative solutions, drive knowledge sharing, perform trend analyses and research, influence policy and set standards on a global level.
 
David Crozier, President of Global EPIC and Head of Strategic Partnerships and Engagement at Queen’s University of Belfast’s Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) said “Turkey is an important transcontinental meeting point who’s recently formalised cyber security cluster, Siberkume, epitomises the principles of Global EPIC in bringing together government, academia and industry to tackle cyber security threats co-operatively. I welcome Siberkume to Global EPIC and look forward to collaborating and sharing knowledge with them in the months and years ahead.”    
 
Cenk ÖZEN, General Co-ordinator at Siberkume said “In the cyber universe where attacks and threats can come from anywhere, we should look for and welcome help and cooperation from everywhere. Siberkume (Turkish Cyber Security Cluster) is set to work for strengthening the young cyber security ecosystem in Turkey. And Global EPIC will be an excellent medium for a healthy and rapid growth as it will provide a diversity of ideas, methods and ways of problem handling and a commonality of goals and communication. We are really excited being accepted to the community and appreciate this warm welcome. And we are looking forward to hearing success stories of other keystone anchors.”
