COVID-19 presented starling challenges for businesses that operate in both the physical and the virtual world. Guildhawk, the Queens Award winning technology and language company discovered a powerful solution to help them weather the storm – their ISO:27001 certified cyber security procedures and an amazing collaboration with Sheffield Hallam University and Innovate UK.

The company’s systems had been tested twice before the pandemic when parts of the City of London suffered big power outages caused by the worst rainfall in decades. Those tests prepared Guildhawk for the ultimate test when the board decided to introduce working from home to keep for all staff safe. Flexible, hybrid working is now the norm since staff find it healthier, productivity has increased 20% and sensational new AI-powered technologies have been created.

Take an insider’s look into the challenges Guildhawk faced and learn how the amazing Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with Sheffield Hallam University is delivering results when Jurga Zilinskiene MBE, a CEO who codes and writes poetry is interviewed at the Cyber Runway event on 22/02/2022.
