Crossword Cybersecurity Plc (AIM:CCS, “Crossword”, the “Company” or the “Group”), the cybersecurity solutions company focused on cyber strategy and risk, today announces its inclusion in the CYBERTECH100, an annual list of 100 of the world’s most innovative CyberTech companies selected by a panel of industry experts and analysts.

Companies were selected for inclusion in the fourth annual CyberTech100 based on their innovative use of technology to solve a significant industry problem or generate cost savings or efficiency improvements across the security value chain.
