Join us to hear first-hand from the frontrunners of high growth in the Scottish cyber scene.
The cyber sector is rapidly evolving in response to threat intelligence, reporting growing risk affected by global affairs. Enterprise companies are making cyber buying decisions and acquisitions at rapid pace, as they identify solutions to protect their supply chain and customer bases; increasing pace of exit returns as well as value.
Investment into Scottish cyber companies has been disproportionate to UK wide investment. It’s time to change that.
On 24th November 2022, you can have a front seat to hear pitches from the Scottish-based frontrunners who have been identified through robust government and private sector-supported selection.
The scope includes all companies identifying as cyber security, digital security (including compliance and governance) and online safety technology.
“In the last 12 months, the (cyber) sector has demonstrated double-digit growth across a number of key measures. The sector’s revenue has grown to more than £10 billion for the first time, and the sector has added over 6,000 jobs. 2021 was also a record year for external investment into the sector – with over £1 billion raised by firms across the UK.”
Julia Lopez MP Minister of State for Media, Data, and Digital Infrastructure, February 2022
“Scotland’s cyber SMEs are being compared with Silicon Valleys. Our latest audit found that the number of cyber companies operating in Scotland increased by more than 25 per cent this past year. Of these, nearly half are Scottish, and more than a fifth of those are start-ups. There’s clear appetite for ideas and innovation within Scotland, but we mustn’t be smug with the success we’ve had so far, and neglect a young, burgeoning industry.”
