Although this is eighteen months old, it's a fascinating interview with Tom Ilube explaining the background to Crossword and giving some insight into which technologies they are looking to exploit....worth a look I think... https://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/stocktube/8397/crossword-cybersecurity-plc-spotting-the-next-generation-of-online-security-solutions-8397.html

Just look at the quality of the board and advisory panel....any company with just one of these individuals involved would be worth investigating....they have five or six major players in the fields of defence, security and digital.... It's a small company at present but set up to be much bigger in time IMO... The tiny free float makes it a buy and hold too....not one for the volatility of traders I would think...

hiraniha - yes, awareness growing and with a really small free float (less than 15%) it moves very quickly on any demand.

Gone vertical today! Still hugely under the radar. This is by far the best long term buy I can see. Happy to continue to add here even at +80% from my initial investment price. Can see this one running and running over the coming years.

When Tom says 'big plans', gauging by the team he has assembled, he means REALLY BIG PLANS. Tom Ilube, CEO of Crossword, commented "Crossword is exceptionally fortunate to be able to attract such a world class group of senior industry figures to our new Advisory Board. We have big plans for the future and being able to draw upon the guidance, advice and networks of our new advisors will be invaluable." Tom Ilube CBE,CEO Tom is founder and CEO of Crossword. He is also a Non Executive Director of the BBC and sits on Royal Bank of Scotland’s Technology Advisory Board. Tom was until recently Managing Director of Consumer Markets at Callcredit Information Group, the private equity backed UK credit reference agency sold to GTCR of Chicago in 2014. Whilst at Callcredit, Tom founded Noddle, a credit reporting service that eventually grew to four million users and was acquired by US-based Credit Karma in 2018. Prior to Callcredit, Tom founded and was CEO of Garlik, a venture capital-backed identity protection company, sold to Experian in 2011. Earlier, Tom served as Chief Information Officer of Egg Banking plc, which at the time was a pioneering main market listed UK internet bank. His earlier career included positions at Goldman Sachs, PwC, Cap Gemini and the London Stock Exchange. Tom chaired the UK Government Technology Strategy Board’s Network Security Innovation panel.

Hybridan... Crossword Cybersecurity has announced the appointment of a new Advisory Board made up of senior figures from academia, the corporate world and government. The new Advisory Board, chaired by former GlaxoSmithKline & NHS Chief Information Security Officer, Dr Robert Coles, will provide a range of unique perspectives on cyber security that will benefit Crossword clients and inform Crossword’s product development strategy. The Advisory Board includes two of Crossword’s existing advisers General Nick Houghton, former Chief of the Defence Staff of the British Armed Forces and Professor Nick Jennings, Vice-Provost at Imperial College London, Professor of Artificial Intelligence, and formerly UK Government Chief Scientific Advisor for National Security. The fourth member is Dr Una-May O’Reilly, a pre-eminent scientist in the fields of AI and Machine Learning who has already worked with Crossword on its Cyber AI Initiative through her role at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The Cyber AI initiative mentioned above brought together a Global Investment Bank, a major Retail Bank, a Multinational Insurance company and a Big Four Professional Services firm. We expect a product proposal to emerge later this year. Crossword is enjoying early success with its supplier assurance platform Rizikon Assurance, and has this year announced contracts in the food manufacturing space (Kinnerton Confectionery) and in Engineering (Nuvia, whose specialist area is the nuclear industry). Both clients are part of significantly larger organisations with other entities that could stand to benefit from Crossword’s enterprise grade management interface for managing third party risk. Our FYDec19E revenue growth projection of 60% is underpinned by momentum in Rizikon Assurance and consultancy activities, but today’s announcement is a clear statement of intent regarding further product development. Crossword enjoys unrivalled access to the most advanced research in cybersecurity that academia has to offer. As such Crossword is in a very strong position to expand its portfolio with innovative cutting-edge solutions that answer real-world problems. Nixer (machine learning based automated attack tool protection) is next in line. The growing customer base will provide a further sounding board for the direction of channel and a receptive audience to whom Crossword can showcase new products.

Yep - such a tiny free float with this stock. Once people understand the sheer scale of what Tom & the team are building we'll be many multiples of this price imo. Will move very quickly given the free float.

Incidentally, anyone trying to buy this stock with AJBell would have failed because they still had it as an ISDX stock (which they don't deal in). I have pointed out to them that CCS transferred to AIM in December and they have now updated their system. ...So you have no excuse not to buy now!

Agreed, I took an entry position this morning, on open. Cyber Security is the hottest of hot sectors and it affects almost every industry with companies having to throw every increasing amounts of money at it. Tom came across exceptionally well on his interview with Justin Waite and seems like an honest, level headed and highly experienced hand. They have an impressive board and I particularly like their strategy of commercialising university IP. There seems to be momentum behind the firm with two contract wins in the last few weeks and they appear to want to de-risk by growing their portfolio up to about 8 different products. All in all there is a lot to like here and it certainly seemed worth taking a stake while they remains under the radar.
