Mobile Cybercrime Immersive Training Wins Award
Mobile training for thousands of police officers in the management of cybercrime and digital evidence is a global challenge: working with Police Scotland and Abertay University we have produced an immersive learning product that provides interactive scenarios in a virtual workplace.
As a company, we are thrilled to have won the award for partnership with Police Scotland at last night’s glittering Cyber Awards ceremony in Edinburgh. It was a great honour to receive the award from the acting chief constable of Police Scotland, Iain Livingstone QPM, and to be recognised for our work with, and in support of, the UK’s second largest police force after the Metropolitan Police. We are also hugely grateful to Abertay University for their generosity with time and world-leading game tech expertise in supporting our programme of work in developing an immersive learning platform for the thousands of police first responders who serve and support communities and businesses across the UK and beyond.
The greatest honour was being among 300 people from Scotland, the rest of the UK and wider afield, who are acknowledged leaders and innovators in the tech and cyber security community. From global companies like RBS, PwC and Accenture, to visionary schools like St Kentigern’s Academy, where Toni Scullion and colleagues are inspiring young women to close the gender gap in the tech sector.
As always, Mandy Haeburn-Little and her magnificent team at Scottish Business Resilience Centre (SBRC) staged a polished, professional and immensely enjoyable event celebrating Scotland’s contribution to promoting cyber security worldwide.
We are proud of our achievement after two years of hard work to realise a new approach to mobile training and e-learning. The award is endorsement of our vision of truly student-centred learning that can be used anytime and anywhere. Our strategy is rooted in partnership with researchers, teachers and our clients. It will remain our core value as we continue to work on tailored solutions and services in immersive technology.
