The Value of LORCA and Partnership

By Andy Bates

The London Office for Rapid Cybersecurity Advancement (LORCA) is a public-private partnership, based at the site of the 2012 London Olympic Games, that is designed to take cyber startups to the next level.

It has been amazing to see the level of competition for LORCA mentorships. The Global Cyber Alliance (GCA) recommends LORCA as a vehicle for any business that is approached by cyber companies who “need that final bit of polish.” LORCA works alongside Deloitte, Lloyds Bank, and CSIT to help take cyber companies to the next level, and in many cases they integrate GCA solutions into their work. The next step for LORCA is their Internet of Things (IoT) cyber range, which will be integrated with the GCA Automated IoT Defense Ecosystem (AIDE) platform.
