CyberUK, Glasgow

24th April 2019

CYBERUK is the UK government’s flagship cyber security event. Hosted by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), it features world-class speakers, solutions and opportunities for interaction between the public and private sectors.

This year Pervade Software took a Stand for the first time at this prestigious event to showcase the brand new solutions that are being rolled out in UK Police Forces and ROCUs to help with the fight against cyber crime, including Cyber Alarm™, Cyber Response™ and OpIndex™ Dark Web Intelligence Gathering.

Pervade Software also demonstrated proactive support for the MoD Army 2020 Strategy and in particular the strategy to develop tactical Cyber Protection Teams in the Army Reserve.  Business Solutions Manager at Pervade, Mark Howells, himself a Reservist with 53 Signal Squadron of the Royal Corps of Signals and a Cyber Troop Commander was given permission to man the stand in uniform to raise the profile of this important national initiative.  "The Army Reserve needs more cyber specialists" said Mark "and there are huge benefits for forces-friendly employers who encourage their staff to explore this exciting and rewarding service in their spare time".

Attended by over 2,000 delegates, CYBERUK is the authoritative event for the UK’s cyber security community. It demonstrates what businesses, government, law enforcement and academia can do together as teams and as organisations to deliver a digital Britain that leads the world in cyber resilience.

Counter Terror Awards 2019

6th March 2019

Pervade Software received a runner's up award at the 2019 Counter Terror Awards held at the ILEC Conference Centre in London along with a Commended Award from the panel of expert Judges who were rewarding contributions to reducing the threat from global terrorism.

Organisations from the UK and overseas attended the prestigious awards ceremony to congratulate organisations who have developed effective technologies to protect against the threat of cyberterrorism.

The event was also attended by Simon Clifford from the UK Police ICT Team who master-minded the bold new strategy that resulted in the selection of Pervade Software's Police Cyber Alarm™ Platform and Police Cyber Response™ Portal which in turn prompted the nomination for this award.

Speaking with journalists from Counter Terror Magazine at the event Simon said "The challenge facing all police forces is to find ways to identify, pursue and prosecute cyber criminals and the key to this is to find local criminals attacking local victims and the unique architecture of the Pervade platform makes this possible".  He went on to describe the Police Cyber Response™ Portal as "a secure collaboration portal that enables us to work much more closely with Cyber Volunteers in the Regions".

Pervade are delighted to have received this award and are looking forward to expanding both solutions.
