Cyan Forensics 4th Birthday
Cyan Forensics turned 4 yesterday (6 October 2020). In previous years we’ve had cake in the office, and maybe gone out for lunch or a drink after work. This year of course we’re all working from home, but we still got together to celebrate the event and captured the occasion for the archive…
We’ve come a long way in the last year, and even though COVID19 has slowed some things down, it has accelerated others.
- We’ve followed up our appointment as a supplier to the UK Government through CAID with further UK contracts in Counter Terror policing, as well as initial sales to France and Germany.
- We’ve recently announced a partnership with Susteen to deliver our technology for rapid scanning of mobile devices, and we have another exciting commercial partnership in the works.
- We raised £1.5m in equity funding to deliver the next stage in our growth.
- We’ve been at the centre of work on Online Safety with Government and other stakeholders, and play a key role in the new Online Safety Tech Industry Association (we are highlighted in the UK Government report on the huge potential on the sector too).
- We’ve won the prestigious Pitch GovTech competition in Paris and more recently the ScotlandIS Digital Technology award for Product Innovation
- We completed the GovStart accelerator, and joined the Tech Nation Cyber 2.0 cohort
- We’ve joined the WeProtect Global Alliance and attended it’s Global Summit in Ethiopia
- Paul Brenan has joined our team as our new chair, and we’ve been delighted to welcome him and 7 other new team members (as well saying sad farewells to others)
Working from home has gone pretty well for us overall, but I think we’re all tiring of it now. Hopefully reflecting on all that we’ve accomplished will help recharge our batteries for all the exciting things we have planned for the next year. We can’t say too much yet, but we’ve been doing a lot of exciting work on new technology, products and partnerships – watch this space.
Together we’re working towards a world where there is no place that harmful digital content can be easily hidden or shared, and the importance of this mission is only growing as our lives have been forced even more online by lockdowns.
Thanks to everyone who has helped us on our journey so far – and all those we’ll work with in the coming year!
