Back in April 2019, the Scottish Government ran the first ever Cyber Scotland Week. It coincided with the biggest cyber security event to ever take place in Scotland, the flagship National Cyber Security Centre conference CYBERUK, which was held the same week in Glasgow.

Fast forward 2 years and Cyber Scotland Week has become an important fixture in the Scottish cyber security diary. This year is takes place from the 22-28 February, and it is an opportunity for those of us who work in cyber security to help businesses, organisations and individuals across Scotland become more cyber aware and resilient.

No matter your level of knowledge, there will be an event happening that you will enjoy, and more importantly, take valuable advice and guidance from.

This year, I am delighted that Converged is going to have its busiest Cyber Scotland Week to date with us taking part in 6 events across 5 days.
