What is Safer Business, Stronger Scotland?
Safer Business, Stronger Scotland is a national campaign led by the Scottish Business Resilience Centre which focusses on supporting a strong economic base for Scotland by helping businesses to be more resilient to the threat of potential risks.
Supported by partner organisations including Police Scotland and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Safer Business, Stronger Scotland drives an unrivalled range of innovative training, support and intelligence sharing for businesses to help mitigate threats ranging from online fraud and fire, to serious organised crime.
Our message is that Scotland is a safe place to live, work and do business, whether online or in a physical setting, through proactive risk awareness and resilience practices. This supports a stronger and more robust economic base for continued investment that, together, means we can build safer, stronger communities.
To make the Safer Business, Stronger Scotland campaign truly nation-wide, we are urging businesses to get involved by taking the #PadlockPledge.
By taking the #PadlockPledge you will join a national network of businesses committed to making a difference. This could be anything from pledging to make your passwords more complex to keeping your staff safe through lone worker training as part of your membership.
We have a full list of pledge examples for you to choose from, or you can make your own! The best part is, you can make as many pledges as you like, and we will be there to fully support you to make it happen. It is free to take part in the #PadlockPledge and our expert team of seconded fire and police officers, as well as our cyber team and ethical hackers at the Scottish Business Resilience Centre are here to help.
Furthermore, we are showing our own dedication to business resilience by creating a calendar of themed activity throughout the year. We are inviting all members and partners of the Scottish Business Resilience Centre to get involved by sharing their unique perspectives and expert advice with our wide-ranging network. Find out more.
