The National Digital Exploitation Centre, or NDEC, is a digital hub in Ebbw Vale, co-developed by the Welsh Government, the University of South Wales, and technology company Thales. The centre exists as a cornerstone of Thales’ cyber capabilities within the UK, to support the Welsh Government’s programme of digital investment and transformation. It does this by providing support, training and project-space to large organisations, SMEs and individuals, research and development opportunities, and by helping to win work-share within Wales.

This bespoke space will allow students and other individuals to witness the digital capabilities of the NDEC and visualise the digital opportunities open to them within Wales, whilst housing the NDEC’s educational and outreach activities programme.
