  1. ThinkingSafe, an SME based in Surrey, received funding from the Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) for projects in a number of areas including cyber insider threat detection and automating cyber incident responses.

    Under the insider threat detection project, ThinkingSafe delivered a technical proof of concept to demonstrate how a software solution could be used to identify insider threats in real time. The software is based on behavioural science and runs autonomously on end point devices.

    Following this successful proof of concept, ThinkingSafe was invited to bid for further research funding from CDE.

    Julian Dean, CTO and Founder, ThinkingSafe says:


    CDE is one of the best UK government frameworks for encouraging innovative SMEs, because the projects are focussed on real business requirements, and delivered with minimal overhead.

    Founded in 1997 and located on the campus of Royal Holloway, University of London, in Egham, Surrey, ThinkingSafe employs 16 people. ThinkingSafe develops and delivers secure computing solutions to security sensitive markets, including finance, professional, government, and medical.
