Do you believe in protecting organisations through cyber security?

Who we are

Scottish Business Resilience Centre (SBRC) is a not-for-profit and a respected voice in business resilience, bringing together the Scottish Government, Police Scotland, and the Scottish business community. The vision of SBRC is to become the catalyst that makes Scotland one of the safest and most resilient places to live, work, and do business, both on and offline, especially during these times of economic recovery.

It is our intention that every Scottish organisation have the skills and knowledge to protect themselves against online attacks.

We achieve this through the delivery of education and preventative training, as well as actively raising awareness of threats throughout the business community.

At SBRC there is a feeling of genuine care and respect for one another with our values: focus, agility and accountability being at the centre of how we operate. We are keen on nurturing our culture, one that supports equality, diversity and helping employees achieve their professional goals, as they work to bring safety to organisations around Scotland. The threat landscape is constantly evolving, and this is an exciting time to join SBRC as we continue to grow and expand our services.

We have an internal culture and well being group and they meet regularly to dissect what we have been doing, and what new things we can do to further enhance the experience for employees. This has led to us trialing a 4 day work week which we hope to keep on beyond the trial. We work based off of a hybrid approach with a blend of in office and work from home.
