CyberScotland Week runs from February 22 to February 28 and will see a host of online events taking place aimed at making Scotland more cyber aware and resilient.

The partnership will highlight the threats that key decision-makers in Scotland in the public and private sectors should be aware of and what steps they can take to minimise the risk to their organisations.

Those attending events will learn how to increase their cyber awareness, about innovation in the industry and what skills are needed to break into the sector.

Editorial Director of The Scotsman, Joy Yates, said: "The pandemic has shown how technology can transform how we live and work, however, with this freedom comes many new risks therefore it is pleasing to have seen how Scotland's cyber security has grown in recent years.

"We look forward to contributing through our own event and highlighting the people and organisations that are helping to grow the sector."
