SBRC Relocation Underlines Growth Ambitions
The move to Linlithgow’s Oracle Campus will foster closer ties and enable greater collaboration between the Centre and industry partners.
The Scottish Business Resilience Centre (SBRC) has moved to a new headquarters in Linlithgow.
The organisation has signed a long-term lease agreement with the Oracle Campus, marking the end of an 18-year stay in Stirling.
The relocation comes amid a period of strong growth for the business resilience centre. In 2018, the SBRC appointed its first COO, Lynsae Tulloch, while secondments from Police Scotland and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service have also bolstered the organisation’s ranks and capabilities.
This move will enable SBRC to further expand its capabilities and enable it to continue supporting businesses and organisations across Scotland, the Centre said.
Space will be shared with a number of strategic partners and organisations, including Police Scotland and ScotlandIS.
Mandy Haeburn-Little, CEO at SBRC, commented: “This is a really significant move for SBRC – it’s allowing us to extend the current remit of the Centre and giving us that important capacity to grow.
“The move has also been made possible by Scottish Enterprise who have been extremely supportive of our vision to open up this collocated space and to encourage Scotland’s growing technical community to come and hot desk with us – so to generate and extend a physical hub with law enforcement and the businesses community.
“It’s been a decision on the cards for a long time, and we can now kick on and provide crucial support to business during what are uncertain times for so many. In the last year we have again seen requests for the model we have created in Scotland from other areas of the UK and beyond, and indeed, the international reach of our ethical hacking team also continues to expand and grow.”
