Cybercrime: 'together let’s crush it'. And wherever it happens in the UK for that matter.

Scotland’s ZoneFox is one of many innovative cyber security organisations shortlisted for tonight's Scottish Cyber Awards. Other shining lights amongst the nominees include Edinburgh Napier University, Skyscanner, 7 Elements, Payfont, Seric Systems and My1Login.

The finalists span business, academia and the public sector, with the winners announced this evening at an awards dinner in Edinburgh.

Like all the nominees, ZoneFox is an example of a pioneering firm, which specialises in information security measures to protect business-critical data.

15,000 cyber security jobs in Scotland by 2026

ZoneFox has received support from Scottish Enterprise, Scotland's main economic development agency, and through the Scottish Investment Bank (SIB).

Any company with a base in Scotland, can access essential funding and business support services from across the public sector. The grants help fund SMEs in various ways, including research and development, so they can grow and innovate in the UK's niche and rapidly-growing cyber security sector, which is expected to generate 15,000 jobs in Scotland by 2026, according to Strathclyde Business School.
