The UK’s dedicated space for industry-led cybersecurity innovation

Our cities, transport networks, infrastructure systems, homes and identities have never been more digitised or interconnected. And a tidal wave of even more technological change is peeking around the corner.

But if we’re going to reap the rewards of quantum computing, AI, 5G, the Internet of Things and more, we need to find smarter ways of protecting our data and staying safe online.

That’s why at Plexal, cybersecurity is one of our focus areas. We’re the home of the London Office for Rapid Cybersecurity Advancement (LORCA): a UK government-backed cybersecurity programme Plexal’s delivering with Deloitte and the Centre for Secure Information Technologies at Queen’s University Belfast.

Our mission is to support the most promising innovators in scaling solutions that meet industry’s biggest challenges, while making it safer to connect digitally.
