GLOBAL cyber security and risk mitigation expert, NCC Group, has secured a new strategic partnership to offer its services to FinTech Scotland’s cluster of almost 200 fintech businesses with the aim of strengthening security postures and boosting resilience.
Cyber threats are a growing concern for enterprises and citizens alike. The partnership directly addresses this concern by enabling FinTech Scotland to provide more cyber security expertise and knowledge to the Scottish fintech community.
Under the partnership, companies involved in the FinTech Scotland cluster will have access to a broad range of cyber security services and expert advice, giving them the confidence to balance increased resilience and ongoing innovation to achieve a secure competitive advantage.
The partnership will also see NCC Group collaborate with FinTech Scotland on marketing, events and research to help inform businesses of the importance and benefits of cyber security across the fintech ecosystem.
Michael Upton, UK Sales Manager at NCC Group, said:
“We have a strong existing presence with financial organisations across the globe, including many of Fintech Scotland’s existing strategic partners. These partnerships, combined with our long-standing presence in Edinburgh, our insight in the fintech space throughout the UK and Europe, and our continued investment in research mean that this strategic relationship will add value for both NCC Group and Fintech Scotland.
With that in mind, we’re excited to help FinTech Scotland’s members to enable business growth on a safe and resilient footing, to clearly demonstrate how they will protect themselves and their customers from cyber threats and comply with global governance frameworks to support their growth.” Nicola Anderson, CEO at FinTech Scotland, said: “Strategic partnerships with global organisations that have a strong base here in Scotland are essential to offering our community a broad range of support options to achieve growth, so we are delighted to welcome NCC Group to the cluster. As an experienced cyber security partner with considerable heritage and insight, NCC Group can support fintech development and help us continue to nurture Scotland’s high growth FinTech assets.”
