The London Office for Rapid Cybersecurity Advancement (LORCA) has announced the 11 scaling cyber companies that will form its second cohort.

Selected by industry leaders, these businesses represent the most promising solutions to the two biggest cybersecurity challenges identified at LORCA last year.

The second LORCA cohort is focused on user-centric security and securing supply chains: the issues identified by a panel of cyber leaders as most important to industry.

Chosen for their growth potential, including commercial application, the 11 scaleups will receive a year of bespoke, world-class support at the government-backed programme which is delivered by innovation centre Plexal, based at tech campus Here East.

The cohort will have unique access to leading experts, including one-to-one commercial and technical support from Deloitte’s Cyber Risk Service team and world-class academic and engineering support from the Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) at Queen’s University Belfast.
