Plexal partners up with Global Cyber Alliance

Plexal, a London-based coworking operator, is on its way to becoming a large cybersecurity innovation hub for security challenge winners.

The company has partnered with the Global Cyber Alliance, the City of New York and the New York Economic Development Corporation to expand its role as a major global cybersecurity cluster.

The Global Cyber Alliance has many notable partners (Adobe, Comodo, Microsoft, etc.) allowing it to share insights with Plexal and LORCA.

Lorca, a government-backed cybersecurity programme run by Deloitte, the Centre for Security Information Technologies at Queen’s University Belfast, and Plexal, recently selected 11 cybersecurity startups for its second cohort in hopes of allowing them to network, develop products and scale in the UK.

These important partnerships with the New York Development Corporation and the Global Cyber Alliance will mean the emerging cyber stars we support can have even greater direct access to new markets and the networks they need to succeed,” said Andrew Roughan, Plexal’s managing director.

The partnership with the City of New York allows Plexal to be the UK lead for the NYCx Cybersecurity Moonshot Challenge, which focuses on making more efficient cybersecurity solutions for small and medium enterprises.

Plexal will represent UK innovators as challenge participants and also act as the main UK landing pad for winners. From there, the company can provide consultation and coworking space for winners so they can further develop in the UK.
