The British Embassy Lisbon and UKTI confirms participation in the Infosec Week
The British Embassy Lisbon and UKTI confirms participation in the Infosec Week and ensures a day dedicated to internationalization of companies.
The British Embassy Lisbon and UK Trade & Investment (UKTI<https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/uk-trade-investment> - working with UK based businesses to ensure their success in international markets, and supporting overseas companies to look at the UK as the best place to set up or expand their business) will take part in the InfoSEC Week. On 8 October UKTI will organise a workshop where a Government specialist and British companies active in cybersecurity will deliver presentations addressed to a Portuguese audience highlighting the strengths of the UK market in this area, with the objective of promoting partnerships between Portuguese and British players.
While the British Government remains committed towards delivering the objectives stated on its National Cyber Security Strategy<https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-cyber-security-strategy-2-years-on>, the UK market in this particular area was worth approximately £2.8 billion in 2013, and is estimated to be over £3.4 billion in 2017. Its growing weight in the British economy is easily explained by the fact that the internet-related market in the UK is estimated at £82 billion a year, while British businesses earn £1 in every £5 from the internet. Definitely a thriving market and an attractive location for companies looking at expanding internationally.
The British delegation travelling to Lisbon will be available to explore potential partnerships and business opportunities with their Portuguese counterparts. During the afternoon of 8 October, after the presentations taking place in the morning, Portuguese guests will have the opportunity to have bilateral meetings with the British speakers.
Do not miss this opportunity if your company is considering the UK market as a possible location for business, or if you are looking for partners that can complement your offer to deliver relevant projects.
