It was a night of much celebration and recognition on Thursday, 24th February, at the Hilton Glasgow last week where many Scottish organisations from the public, private and third sector got together for CeeD Industry Awards 2022. The awards acknowledge and honour the accomplishments of shortlisted individuals, groups and organisations doing exemplary work within various Scottish industries.

Several presenters and award recipients used the platform to express the importance and significant impact of brining organisations together, for all sectors alike, to build a safer, more aware, and resilient Scotland.

We are delighted to share that SBRC was shortlisted for three award categories and we successfully won the Cyber Resilience award. Accepting the award, Jude McCorry, CEO, Scottish Business Resilience Centre, shared, “I am absolutely thrilled to be accepting this award on behalf of SBRC. It is such an honour to be recognised for our continued efforts in helping all Scottish organisations become resilient to cyber threats and making Scotland one of the safest and most resilient places to live, work, and do business, both on and offline.

She added: “We are delighted to receive this award as it recognises and celebrates the tireless efforts of our team who work towards the one, common goal of bringing cyber resilience to the core of every Scottish business irrespective of the sector, size, and current level of cyber awareness. Congratulations to all the other shortlisted and winning companies on the night, and a massive well done to CeeD for organising a fantastic event.”

CeeD added two new categories this year, to reflect on how organisations have had to change or pivot their business due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
