Dangers and Desires
The biggest challenge for any new industry entry is getting noticed. This challenge is supersized for any new player in cybersecurity. In 2022, the sector demonstrated double-digit growth and a revenue growth of over £10 billion.
Socura was a new entrant to the highly competitive cybersecurity market and was looking to establish its share of voice and make its brand visible, valued and understood amongst target customers.
They were only too aware of the threat of competition and how crowded the marketplace was. To cut through the noise, they needed a communications partner with a proven track record of getting their clients out there.
Impressed with EC-PR’s past successes and in-depth understanding of the cybersecurity industry, Socura appointed us to help them achieve all their PR ambitions.
We took a logical and strategic approach to Socura’s brief. To start with, we engaged in a research and thought-led exercise to establish the kind of topics that would be of interest to a cybersecurity audience.
The resulting information fed into the communications cycle, which allowed us to engage with key industry influencers and highly respected journalists within the sector.

The ideas all tied in with issues concerning the industry at the current time and allowed us to convey Socura’s key messages to ensure their expertise was clearly communicated.
An insight paper followed. This was titled ‘Cyber Security in a Post-Pandemic World’ and gave Socura the ideal opportunity to engage with their target media and show the extent of their relevance and knowledge.
The content of the paper provided valuable, free content for readers and further cemented Socura’s position as an expert in the field of cybersecurity.
Finally for the launch campaign, we carried out a highly targeted proactive media outreach that secured thought leadership articles, media interviews and brand mentions in the cybersecurity press, as well as the healthcare press — two sectors that were key for Socura.
The media outreach programme succeeded in generating coverage in tier 1 tech publications which included:
- Information Age
- CISO Mag
- Infosecurity Magazine
- HealthTech Digital
- Tech Native
- Influencer recognition on social media by the likes of Lisa Forte, a high-profile UK cybersecurity influencer.
There were also clear improvements to website traffic as a direct result of the PR launch. Visits to the website increased significantly — by 32%, while web page engagement was up by 54%, and engagement rate per web session increased by 89%.
The PR launch we conducted translated Socura’s challenge into actions which produced tangible outcomes across the marketing spectrum. As a result, Socura was able to firmly position itself as a cybersecurity thought leader with a strong focus on healthcare.
The real risk for this new player in the market was that their launch would fall flat, being stifled by the noise coming from the established. With EC-PR’s help, the opposite happened. Socura started to become a known name in the industry within just months of launch, enjoying a strong share of voice, high visibility, and powerful brand impact — sturdy foundations to build even more communications success in the future.
