Ascent Cyber was formed by three friends, while studying Cyber Security and Networks at Glasgow Caledonian University. Having previously studied Networking at college, this was where we refined our skills and specialised in the areas of Ethical Hacking, Penetration Testing and Digital Forensic Analysis.

We realised through speaking to small business owners that although most use the internet for their day-to-day activities, there is a lack of awareness of the risks posed by inadequate cyber security provisioning. Coupled to this is a fear of the unknown and confusion caused by overly technical jargon which is all too often thrown around within the industry.

We want to change that. We want small and medium sized business owners in our community and beyond to feel empowered by the technical advances and opportunities available, without fearing them.


With our accumulated knowledge in computer security and our combined experience in customer service and training, we set out to help small businesses thrive and make staying safe easy.
