Awen Collective helps secure critical infrastructure for a safer society. They enable energy, water, transportation, defence and healthcare organisations to understand and reduce the risk of receiving cyber attacks, using simple, secure and safe software developed by them in Wales.

They focus on the security of a variety of different operational technology systems such as Industrial Control Systems, Robotics and Internet of Things devices.

The free Profile account offer will help the healthcare sector work quickly towards lower levels of cyber risk, freeing up time to work on more important things, and improve their cyber security by lowering the potential for disruption caused by cyber attacks.

Awen Collective CEO and Cofounder Daniel Lewis said: “Our critical yet vulnerable health services need all the help they can get right now, so we’re doing what we can to keep them focused on delivering their critical services. Unbelievably, there’s already evidence of international cyber attacks targeted at healthcare services during the Coronavirus outbreak, so they need as much protection as possible at this crucial time. Anyone interested can contact me at or +44 29 2120 2936.”

Founded in 2017, the company has benefitted from the Welsh Government Accelerated Growth Programme, and regards their mission as reducing the impact of cyber attacks on society's critical infrastructures, and the consequential disruption they cause. 

Profile is ideal for use by the water, electricity, oil & gas, transportation, critical manufacturing, healthcare and financial sectors, enabling organisations to quickly and collaboratively check and improve compliance to the EU Network and Information Security (NIS) Directive.

The Awen Collective has reached the Top 10 in the Security category of the Accenture Blue Tulip Awards 2020, and is one of 10 companies (three from Wales) in the Google for Startups UK Immersion Programme. 

Wales has a thriving cyber ecosystem, the largest in the UK, with companies such as Airbus, Thales, BT, Aston Martin, General Dynamics and SANS Institute choosing to locate either their European headquarters or significant cyber operations in and around south Wales.

With over 1,000 members, the North and South Wales Cyber Security Clusters have been formed, under the umbrella of the UK Government supported UK Cyber Security Forum, along with a number of other clusters, including Women in Cyber.
