Shortly after the homegrown start-up Responsible Cyber took home the SME (Vendor) award, it announced the impending launch of a Cyber Immunity campaign which offers Small and Medium Enterprises a complimentary Immunity Report that summarizes key areas for improvement with specific regard to their individual cyber exposures.

Issuing free Immunity Reports is part of their contributions toward improving the overall health of the cyber security ecosystem in Singapore. “We are immensely honored to have our efforts acknowledged among an undoubtedly outstanding roster of nominees,” remarked Responsible Cyber’s Co-founder, Mikko Laaksonen, “the award is a testament to the potential of the security product we are building and we can’t wait to share this with the world.

“This accomplishment would not have been possible without the team,” said Magda Chelly, Responsible Cyber’s co-founder and Managing Director, “some of our team members do not come with a background in cyber security but each of them shares the passion and willingness to learn. This brings a unique perspective to the field, and that’s what makes us special.”

Responsible Cyber sponsors various cyber security certifications and training initiatives, including Offensive Security Certified Professional for Women on Cyber Singapore. In this highly volatile digital environment, its goal is to dramatically improve the cyber security posture of start-ups and growing enterprises and equip them with comprehensive cyber security support through innovative solutions, open sharing of cyber security know-how and extensive awareness outreach initiatives to those in and outside of the industry.

With seasoned cybersecurity professionals at the helm, and as a newly-crowned World Economic Forum New Champion, Responsible Cyber activates impactful networks to bring their innovative cyber security platform, IMMUNE, to global markets and businesses.
