We’re proud to announce CyberSmart has been nominated in the UK Innovative Vendor of the Year category at the 2020 CompTIA UK Spotlight Awards.

Who doesn’t love an awards ceremony? The sense of camaraderie with the other nominees. The tension. And the chance to celebrate this year’s greatest innovations in a room full of like-minded people. 

So we’re delighted to have been invited to the 2020 Comp TIA Awards. CompTIA is a global not-for-profit trade association, promoting excellence and standards within the tech industry.

What’s the award for?

The Innovative Vendor of the Year award is open to any tech business demonstrating innovation or an approach that has transformed their organisation, a client’s, or the wider industry. For 2020, candidates who have shown leadership in their community or organisation during the COVID-19 crisis will be given special consideration. 

We’re particularly excited to be nominated in the innovation category. The COVID-19 crisis has brought the importance of good cyber hygiene into sharp focus. With many small businesses working remotely, cyber threats are on the rise. And these conditions have made our mission to help SMEs better protect themselves more crucial than ever. 

What does the future hold?

We started CyberSmart with the goal of innovating a much-neglected part of the UK economy: cybersecurity for SMEs. This nomination is confirmation that we’re on the right track. 

But we won’t stop here. We’re determined to be a force for good in the world. We won’t rest until good cyber hygiene is part of every SME’s daily routine – much like brushing your teeth or washing your hands. 

We’d like to thank our backers, everyone at CyberSmart who made this nomination possible and, of course, our customers.

Are you a start-up looking to improve cybersecurity but not sure where to begin? Start by getting certified in Cyber Essentials, the UK government scheme that covers all the fundamentals of cyber hygiene.
