A group of Birmingham-based tech founders are uniting to provide businesses with cutting edge software designed to make outsourcing a safer process. Following a concerning increase in the cost of data breaches, Cude gives businesses the tools to protect key business information and IP.

Founded by a group of seasoned AI and tech experts, the Birmingham-based company aims to tackle the reported 15% increase in cost of data breaches and provide businesses with a safer way of introducing outsourcing through real-time monitoring and detailed encryption measures.

Headed by CEO James Alabi, CTO Bamidele Popoola, and COO Laurentiu Nae, Cude marks the next step in protecting businesses from digital threats and data mismanagement. With the help of AI, the platform will help to combat the potentially catastrophic costs associated with high-level data breaches. Not only this, but other outsourcing issues such as scope creep and fair pay can be managed through Cude’s game-changing tech.

To support the launch, the Cude team will be holding a panel discussing how IP is currently at risk, addressing the very real threat of digital and AI. Hosted at STEAMhouse with a panel of AI, IP, and tech experts, the event will spotlight growing issues in the digital business world with a particular focus on intellectual property, artificial intelligence, and data protection.


Speaking on the launch, CEO, James Alabi commented: “I can speak for the whole team when I say that we’re incredibly excited to introduce Cude to the world. In Birmingham, we’ve been working incredibly hard to give businesses a tool that reduces risk and helps business owners focus on the important things.

“The digital landscape offers endless opportunity for businesses, but the risk involved is

either putting businesses under unnecessary stress or putting businesses off of outsourcing all together. Our platform will provide businesses with a safe and credible path into outsourcing and support them in their business growth journey.

“We hope the introduction of Cude marks a step towards a safer, more connected future for business in the West Midlands and beyond.”

Cude is currently open for early access registration and will be widely available in 2024.
