The founders of CyberPilot first met in 2015. A mix of competencies ranging from technical cybersecurity, compliance and governance, to experience with sales, strategy, and management, provided the right conditions for the founding of CyberPilot.
The idea was to start a cybersecurity company which enabled all organisations – both large and small – to work with cybersecurity, as it is relevant for all of us. We knew from the very beginning that cybersecurity is going to be more and more important in our everyday lives!
Thus, CyberPilot was founded in early 2016.
Later that year, in May 2016, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was adopted.
This meant that new rules for the handling of personal data would be enforced at the European level, from May 2018.
GDPR has been a major driver of the growth of CyberPilot, as it was suddenly a requirement and not just a „voluntary“ task to work with cybersecurity.
However, our first priority is always to help rather than sell. The confidence of our customers mean more than quick sales! This is why we have always prioritised finding the right and pragmatic solutions for our customers, instead of simply scaring customers into buying unnecessary solutions.
At CyberPilot, the focus is always on the long-term perspective!
