Safer Business Stronger Scotland is a brand new campaign launched by the Scottish Business Resilience Centre.


Through Safer Business, Stronger Scotland we are driving innovative training, support and intelligence sharing for businesses - from start-up entrepreneurs to multinational companies - to help mitigate threats ranging from online fraud to serious organised crime.

In essence our message is that Scotland is a safe place to work and do business, whether online or in a physical setting, through proactive risk awareness and resilience practices, thereby supporting a stronger and more robust economic base.

At its heart, our approach is about working in multi-layered public and private partnerships across the justice and economy spectrums, from local to national level.

Our partners include private business, industry membership bodies, Can Do, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, and Scottish Government.

If you have signed up to take the #PadlockPledge and would like the opportunity to support the Safer Business, Stronger Scotland campaign further, we would love for you to get involved.


We are inviting all members and partners of the Scottish Business Resilience Centre to share their unique perspectives and expert advice with our wide audience and networks.
