The Cyber Accelerator, part of the Cheltenham Innovation Centre, is just one deliverable set out in the National Cyber Security Strategy. The Accelerator supports the growth of start-up cyber companies who aim to bring new ‘better, faster and cheaper’ security products to market. It aims to support the emerging cyber security industry within the UK, encouraging skills, jobs and growth.
Participating start-ups are chosen through open competition using technical challenges written by technical leaders within the NCSC. These challenges identify areas of cyber security weakness where new products are needed. Those participating receive commercial growth opportunities as well as mentoring and advice from the NCSC itself.
So, are you interested in getting your business involved? The Cyber Accelerator can help your business meet its security challenges through:
- shaping technical challenges to bring a focus to areas of interest;
- working together and directly with start-up companies to influence their products
- providing technical leadership and influence to encourage the growing cyber eco-system
