Beyond our core business, we engage in initiatives that contribute to a safer digital world for everyone. Simultaneously, we are deeply invested in nurturing a highly skilled workforce, offering ample opportunities for personal and professional growth.
Established in 2016 by academic pioneers from Sheffield Hallam University, Samurai Digital Security is not your run-of-the-mill cybersecurity and information governance firm. Instead, we are an innovative powerhouse, continually seeking to break the mould. Just as the legendary Samurai warriors of yore, known for their superior training and strategic prowess, overcome seemingly insurmountable odds, we similarly strive to outmanoeuvre today’s cyber threats.
Our distinctive roots within academia continue to shape our philosophy and approach. Passionate about cutting-edge, research-inspired solutions, we stand firm in our commitment to push beyond the conventional boundaries of the cybersecurity landscape. We are motivated to constantly explore and exploit new technologies, investing significantly in avant-garde research to craft sophisticated tools and techniques to fortify our security services. This unending pursuit of innovation allows us to navigate the ever-evolving threat environment with agility, equipping our clients with the most robust and efficient cybersecurity services.
Reflecting our firm’s dedication to excellence, we are proud to be recognised as a Certified Cyber Security Consultancy (CCSC) by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), a testament to our proficiency in risk assessment and management. In addition to being a CREST-assured penetration testing provider, we are also an esteemed member of the Cyber Security Information Sharing Partnership (CiSP), an exclusive initiative facilitating secure and confidential cyber threat information exchange among UK organisations.
Our accomplishments are not confined to institutional recognition. Our CEO, Dr David Day, is a Certified Cyber Professional with the NCSC, wielding his expertise as a Special Officer within the National Cyber Crime Unit (NCCU). Our association with key institutions such as the NCCU and the National Crime Agency (NCA) demonstrates our unwavering commitment to joining forces in thwarting cybercrimes that pose a threat to national security.
As we evolved from a start-up conceived at a university into a dynamic, diverse organisation, we have held firm to our values and principles. The essence of our company lies in our people – a team of highly trained individuals who consistently deliver excellence in their work. We champion remote and flexible working practices and invest heavily in nurturing our consultants’ growth and fulfilment, resulting in superior service to our diverse clientele.
Drawing parallels to the Samurai Warriors’ feat of overcoming the Mongol Yuan Dynasty despite a four-to-one disadvantage and inferior weaponry, we recognise that in the cyber battle, we are up against an enemy that often possesses more numbers, resources, money, and time. Yet, we are not daunted. Like the Samurai, we believe that with superior training and strategies, we can and will prevail.
The ethos of excellence trumping brute force resonates with us at Samurai Digital Security, inspiring us to cultivate a team that continually strives to raise the bar. Since our inception, this unwavering spirit has fuelled our growth and success, reinforcing our commitment to safeguard our clients’ digital assets and interests. As we look towards the future, we remain steadfast in our pursuit of innovation, continuous learning, and discovery.
