cyberAndy Williams, the U.K.’s first cybersecurity representative in the U.S., has been working to help British information technology companies promote their offerings across the U.S. public sector, FCW reported Wednesday.

“Part of what I’m here to work out for the U.K. companies is where they should focus their attention in terms of what the U.S. government is looking for,” Williams told FCW in an interview.

He added that several companies from his country seek to participate in the Department of Homeland Security‘s continuous diagnostics and mitigation program, according to the publication.

FCW reports that Williams helped assemble a delegation of British IT industry executives to join Prime Minister David Cameron during his visit to Washington in January.

The U.S. and the U.K have agreed to establish a joint cyber hub in each country to help government agencies exchange information and develop measures against cybersecurity threats, the report says.
