Validato is delighted to announce that it is only one of five high potential cyber startups in the UK invited to join the NCSC for Startups programme, delivered in partnership with Plexal.  This is a programme designed by the UK’s NCSC to engage with private sector technology companies to combat the nationwide threat of Ransomware.

Ransomware is considered by the NCSC to be the number one cyber threat to the UK.  The aim of the NCSC for Startups programme is to nurture and develop promising UK based cyber technologies to address specific challenges and threats.

Chris Ensor, Deputy Director for Cyber Growth at the NCSC, said:

“Ransomware remains the biggest cyber threat to UK organisations, and tackling it requires a collective effort.

“The five companies selected to join the NCSC for Startups initiative offer various innovative approaches to dealing with ransomware – we look forward to working with them and ultimately further boosting the UK’s cyber security.”
