The new multi-million pound London Cyber Innovation Centre in the east end of the city looks set to become an important facility in countering global threats.

The £13.5 million centre will be led by Plexal – a tech campus opened last year at Here East in the former Olympic Park with a remit to be a unique innovation destination not only for London but the rest of the World.

 

“The new Centre will provide UK cyber innovators with a platform to develop their products with exactly the right market fit. We are delighted to support with both our extensive cyber domain expertise and global market access,” said Stephen Wray, director of Cyber Innovation at Deloitte.

 

Deloitte and Queen’s University Belfast are the other key partners in the project, and together with Plexal, they have put together a ‘cross-disciplinary team with deep entrepreneurial, engineering and cyber security technical skills’. It will incubate more than 70 startups over three and half years, providing them with world-class, bespoke programmes, to create a pipeline of market ready innovations that can combat the growing and complex nature of cyber threats.
