What We Do

WE’RE CONVENING a cyber ecosystem that includes industry, cyber innovators, INVESTORS, ACADEMICS and SISTER PROGRAMMES TO:

  • maximise the commercial potential of cyber solutions industry and society need most
  • make the internet safer for everyone
  • make the UK a global leader in cybersecurity innovation
  • act as a landing pad and launchpad for cyber innovators, while strengthening the UK’s ties with international cyber hubs



LORCA’s funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. It’s delivered by Plexal, an innovation centre and coworking space, with support from Deloitte and the Centre for Secure Information Technologies.

We also engage with a cross-spectrum of industry leaders through Needs Accelerators for specific sectors, plus our Finance Forum, Innovation Forum  and Industry Advisory Board.

We’re backed by a number of official corporate partners that want to tap into our innovation community and shape the solutions coming to market. They include Lloyds Banking Group, Dell Technologies, Kudelski Security, Kx and the Global Cyber Alliance.

We believe in the power of collaboration across sectors and borders, so if you’d like to join our community, get in touch.
