Start-ups graduate from the GCHQ Cyber Accelerator
News article - 28 June 2018
A group of tech start-ups have become the latest to graduate from a ground-breaking Government initiative to advance the next generation of cyber security systems.
The nine-month GCHQ Cyber Accelerator, delivered in partnership with Wayra UK, part of Telefónica Open Future, saw nine companies develop cutting-edge products and services to help enhance the UK's cyber defences.
Part of the UK Government’s £1.9bn National Cyber Security Strategy and the Cheltenham Innovation Centre, the Accelerator is a collaboration between the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), GCHQ, National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), and Wayra UK and aims to drive innovation in the cyber security sector.
NCSC, DCMS and Wayra UK will soon be calling for cyber start-ups to join the third round of the programme - now renamed to the NCSC Cyber Accelerator - to help address some of cyber space's key challenges.
