7 Elements had a very successful evening at the inaugural Scottish Cyber Awards 2016. Our CEO David Stubley was shortlisted for the Cyber Evangelist of the year, along with Stu Hirst (Head of Security for Skyscanner) and Prof Bill Buchanan of Napier Uni and The Cyber Academy.
“It was an honour to be shortlisted along with Bill and David who are absolute champions for cyber security in Scotland and beyond. 2017 is sure to be another challenging but exciting year for security and we can all continue to make great strides in protecting business from the continued threat of cyber crime”. Stu Hirst
With Bill quite rightly being recognised for all of his hard work within the Scottish cyber security community as the winner of the award.
“The Cyber Security awards showcased the great work within innovation within Scotland, particular with up-and-coming companies such as ZoneFox, 7 Elements and Net Defence. A key highlight of the event for me was the focus on innovation and especially on SME activity, as these companies will provide us the foundation for our economic activity around the area”. Prof Bill Buchanan
7 Elements, along with ZoneFox and Truststream were shortlisted for the SME Cyber Defender of the year award. With such a high quality shortlist, it was an immensely proud moment for the 7 Elements team to walk away with this award. Especially with ZoneFox later on collecting the award for Champions of Champions!

“Being nominated for SME defender was a great indication of the fact that SME’s also require the same level of protection that larger orgs invest in, and it’s great to know we’re helping. Winning the international contribution and champion of champion award is a fantastic honour. The team have worked to give us our most commercially successful year, and to win these awards is the icing on the cake”. Dr Jamie Graves (Zone Fox)
