Move brings agencies together
SBRC creates tech resilience hub in move to Linlithgow
The move to the Oracle Campus comes at a time of expansion, including the recruitment of its first chief operating officer and further senior secondments from Police Scotland and from Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.
SBRC will share space with Police Scotland, a key partner of the Centre that helps to deliver advice on all aspects of prevention advice and the latest criminal threats and trends.
Mandy Haeburn-Little, pictured, CEO at SBRC said: “This is a really significant move for SBRC – it’s allowing us to extend the current remit of the Centre and giving us that important capacity to grow.
“The move has also been made possible by Scottish Enterprise who have been extremely supportive of our vision to open up this collocated space and to encourage Scotland’s growing technical community to come and hot desk with us – so to generate and extend a physical hub with law enforcement and the business community.”
SBRC’s neighbours will be ScotlandIS – the trade body for Scotland’s digital economy. Polly Purvis, Chief Executive at ScotlandIS said: “In many ways SBRC is the ideal neighbour for us – and the relocation alongside us is truly good news for Scotland’s tech sector.
“While cybercrime remains a huge and growing threat to organisations in Scotland, the cybersecurity sector is going from strength to strength – and the country has the potential to become a global leader.”
