The GCHQ Cyber Accelerator is a collaboration between the UK Government Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), Wayra UK, part of Telefónica Open Future_, and the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
Part of the Government’s £1.9bn National Cyber Security Programme, it drives innovation in the cyber security sector and helps keep British businesses and consumers safe from online attacks and threats.
Successful applicants will gain access to GCHQ’s world-class personnel and technological expertise to allow them to expand capability, improve ideas and devise cutting-edge products to outpace current and emerging threats.
The partnership will help teams develop their businesses and secure the investment needed to take their companies to the next level. A roster of best-in-class coaches and mentors from GCHQ and the wider Telefónica Group – including O2 and ElevenPaths – will provide support.
