The Chamber of Commerce honored eShore’s business excellence and contributions to the local and private sector community at the Chamber’s second annual business awards at The Ritz-Carlton on Oct. 28.

Richard W. Rahn, chairman of the Institute for Global Economic Growth and a prominent supporter of the Cayman Islands, said although Cayman was a small country, eShore provided world-class professionals and service, and deserved the recognition offered by this award.

In October, eShore hosted its annual, regional Armour Expo conference, which featured expert guest speakers and showcased strategies and solutions in cybersecurity, FinTech and data protection for the business community. The event was attended by more than 200 delegates.

The IT company also offers complimentary cybersecurity events aimed at helping local businesses understand the key challenges and issues in cybersecurity, and how best to stay safe online.

In addition, eShore provides a CSXF cybersecurity fundamentals scholarship. It helps local business people, including newly qualified graduates, to study a prestigious cybersecurity course, building up to the ISACA Cybersecurity Fundamentals certification exam.

The company recently launched Cayman Cyber Kids, an initiative that takes on the issues of cybersecurity and how to keep children and families safe.

Polly Pickering, managing director of eShore Ltd. said, “Cyberthreats are continually evolving, which is why constant vigilance is required. Our cyber and business experts at eShore continue to make a significant impact above and beyond serving our core markets of email, data and cybersecurity.

“I am so proud that as a company we also invest our time and resources in both local and regional social initiatives, which are very close to my heart,” she said. “We come together as a community to educate and protect ourselves and our children from the latest evolving cyberdangers.”
