Terrier Risk Partners – Tom Inglis of Wildcat Applications and Alison Stone of 3 Minutes to Midnight

Terrier Risk Partners comprises two experienced businesses coming together to provide cyber security solutions to SME’s in order to tender for larger contracts.

Together the businesses wanted to capitalise on initiatives offered by the Scottish Government, such as the Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband, by offering expertise in the fields risk assessment, business continuity , protection and recovery

The consortium is a combined offering for firms who have identified a need to improve their ability to protect against and recover from IT related disasters.  It aims to provide a 360 degree review of each organisation’s risk exposure and then recommend solutions that are appropriate to the size, needs and budgets of their clients.

Tom Inglis from Terrier Risk Partners spoke to us:  “We strongly believes that the services we are offering are valuable to businesses and supply a solution to problems identified by the Scottish Government, industry bodies and academic research.

“Following our win, we intend to fund the creation of a brand, website and various other marketing materials.

“The business support we will receive from winning is extremely important as it will help us to grow the business. We’re hoping to work with Scottish Enterprise to explore partnership opportunities and utilise PR opportunities to help us raise our profile as well as marketing support to assist in developing the offering and positioning us in the marketplace.”

The member businesses in Terrier Risk Partners are:

  • Wildcat Applications, Edinburgh
  • 3 Minutes to Midnight, Musselburgh, East Lothian
