Check Point Software Technologies, a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions globally, has announced that it has become a strategic partner of FinTech Scotland, an independent not-for-profit body jointly established by the private sector and the Scottish Government. Check Point solutions bring a practical boost to cybersecurity awareness and engagement with Scottish FinTech firms.
The partnership will see Check Point deliver cybersecurity education and training initiatives to organisations operating in FinTech Scotland’s cluster. It will also work with the FinTech SMEs to enable cybersecurity from the outset with focused solutions to help protect their businesses against cyberthreats targeting networks, cloud deployments and mobile devices.
FinTech Scotland is supported by a broad range of global financial services, technology and professional services firms, as well as University of Edinburgh and University of Strathclyde, the Financial Conduct Authority, Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise. Check Point brings its expertise and global experience on cybersecurity, which will help further develop Scotland’s position as a global fintech cluster.
“Scotland is home to a phenomenal pool of FinTech talent. However, as with many sectors, these firms face complex challenges right now, as they navigate the changes to their networks due to the rapid Digital Transformation and remote working practices forced upon us all,” said Roddy MacCallum, Head of Scotland at Check Point Software Technologies. “By partnering with FinTech Scotland, we aim to equip these firms with the tools and support they need to ensure cybersecurity is deeply embedded within their business in these challenging times and beyond.”Click below to share this article
