Changing the Future

Digital Shadows is a security and intelligence company that helps its clients detect and prevent cyberthreats. The startup’s software monitors the web (including the so-called ‘dark’ web) to identify any exposed personal, technical or organisational information that might be sensitive or proprietary to its clients. These ‘digital shadows’ can be exploited by cybercriminals to launch targeted attacks. 2015 saw the company close an $8 million round of Series A investment, double its team from 25 to 60 and increase its revenue by 200% since 2014.
