Russ Wardle OBE DL gives evidence at Welsh Affairs Committee in Westminster

This morning, Russ Wardle OBE DL, Arcanum’s Managing Director appeared at a Welsh Affairs Committee session on the Defence Industry in Wales. Russ was invited as a witness to give evidence on behalf of Arcanum Cyber. Joining Russ were representatives from two other Welsh Companies –  Qioptiq (Opto-electronics Sector) and Tritech (Aerospace Sector). Arcanum was selected to talk as a leading Cyber Security company in Wales, with a large consultancy team focussed on the Defence Sector. This session was broadcast live on Parliament TV.

The three witnesses stood before the Committee in a session that explored the companies’ relationships with defence primes from across Wales. The session considered the opportunities for smaller companies to enter defence supply chains and their contribution to innovations. The Ministry of Defence’s (MOD’s) engagement with SMEs is also likely to be raised, particularly in light of its target that 25% of its procurement spend should go directly or indirectly to SMEs.
