CyberZephyr CEO Travels to UK with Delegation

November 23, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC. Debbie Taylor Moore, CEO of Leesburg, Virginia-based cybersecurity consulting firm, CyberZephyr, joined a group of Washington business leaders in the United Kingdom, as part of the Government Business Executive Forum established by Upson Vito, LLC. The goal of the delegation was to discuss U.K public sector policy and business opportunities between the UK and the United States. Cloud computing, mobile technologies, and cybersecurity were of significant focus.

The delegation met with leaders of Parliament, Prime Minister’s staff, public policy experts, business and IT leaders to discuss compelling issues such as Cyber Defense, Health IT, the UK contracting environment and the U.K.’s “New Austerity” directives.

“The visit was quite enlightening” says, Moore. “The challenges of our countries couldn’t be more similar – the IT budget mandate to do more with less, the aggressive move to cloud computing and citizen services, and the challenge of managing and thwarting cybersecurity threats.”

The delegation was introduced to a vibrant and emerging mini-version of Silicon Valley on London’s East End, called “Tech City”.

“The East End appears to be in the midst of a rebirth,” said Moore, “It appears to be very promising. We’re told Prime Minister David Cameron has established a $23 million investment fund to attract technology entrepreneurs and companies in the U.S. in an effort to spur the growth of this evolving, hip, eclectic territory.”

The tech cluster has also received the attention of Silicon Valley. Tech giants Cisco and Google have plans for investment. Regarding CyberZephyr’s role, Moore says, “Our goal is to ensure that the U.S. gets its full measure of exposure to cyber-innovation coming from entrepreneurs in every corner of the world – cybersecurity is of both national and global importance – we need to work together.”

The UK delegation also met with Tim Luke, Prime Minister David Cameron’s Senior Advisor on Business, Trade and Innovation. Luke shared the new "Great" branding and ad campaign for Great Britain – just in time for the 2012 London Summer Olympics, “We’re very excited,” he said, “This a great time for Great Britain.”
