It's been almost two years since we last published information on Cyber Security Companies. Our last article looked at al the companies with Cyber Security skills on the Company Connecting database. This time we have focused on the 270 Scottish companies with Cyber Security skills. We have almost 4,500 tech companies on our database of which 2,700+ are in Scotland. So about 10% of the Scottish tech companies have some cyber security skills.

Some quick stats on the 270 Scottish companies with Cyber Security as a skill:

  • The distribution of company ages is interesting with 0-5 years at 14%, 6-10 years at 26% and >10 years at 44%. (We are working on the information for the remaining 16%)
  • Edinburgh, Glasgow take first and second place for the number of cyber security companies, with Aberdeen city, South Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire in joint third place
  • SMEs, Financial Services and IT are the top three sectors serviced by the companies.
  • Security, Mobile display and Information Security are the top three focal areas.

There is lots more information in the infographic below. It is interactive, so more facts can be viewed by hovering over the charts.
