Founded in 2010 by cybersecurity experts Suid Adeyanju and Oseloka Obiora, RiverSafe has seen a surge in demand for its services with revenue increasing 395 per cent in the last five years. The company, which is based in Canary Wharf, London, has also boosted its staff headcount of cyber and DevOps specialists by 171 per cent over the same period, with plans for a further increase of 20 per cent over the next three years. Both founders have played a key role in mentoring and calling for more diversity in the industry.
Oseloka Obiora, the company’s Chief Technology Officer, recently addressed the UK Parliament, warning MPs and industry leaders about the growing threat posed by the increasing volume of sophisticated cyber attacks. The company’s growth plans come at a time with cyber threats to the public and private sector at an all-time high, with numerous high-profile incidents of successful hacking, phishing, and ransomware attacks making headlines around the world.
Centropy will lead RiverSafe’s comms campaign, providing a full suite of PR servicing including thought leadership, strategic counsel, media relations and content creation.
Amber Williams, Head of Marketing at RiverSafe said:
