The Scottish Cyber Awards now needs no introduction. It’s the highlight of the annual cyber calendar with the whole community coming together for one night to celebrate the talent of Scotland. Now in its sixth year, the awards recognise and celebrate stand-out individuals who are leading the way in cyber and tech and organisations making a positive impact in Scotland’s cyber security sector.
Last year despite all the restrictions and uncertainty we had over 350 key individuals from the cyber and tech industry join us at the Sheraton Hotel to celebrate all the finalists and winners who were whittled down from over 100 applications. We anticipate the same level of excitement if not more this year.
Jude McCorry, CEO of the Scottish Business Resilience Centre commented: “We are delighted to announce the 2022 Cyber Awards. It has always been one of the highlights on the events calendar, and this year we know it will be appreciated even more after the last few months. Thank you for all your ongoing support and looking forward to seeing you all there to celebrate everything Cyber in Scotland!”
