A very exciting three days for iProov at the NCSC’s CyberUK event! Held at the ACC Liverpool from 14-16 March, CyberUK is the Government’s biggest and most influential IA and Cyber Security event to date, hosted by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).
Our team was busy showing the iProov Verifier solution for authentication and remote onboarding to delegates at our stand in the Innovation Zone (sponsored by the DCMS) of the conference.
On the first day, CEO & Founder Andrew Bud delivered a Dragon’s Den-style pitch (an initiative of the DCMS Cyber Security Growth team) to the NCSC’s Dr. Ian Levy, Jon L and Rob T. After facing the “dragons’” questioning, iProov was chosen as the winner of the competition, which was announced by Ciaran Martin (Director, NCSC) during the conference.
The reward for the winner is assistance from the NCSC that will be tailored to suit the selected product or service. It could take the form of developing, assessing and piloting their product or service. It may include consultancy on the technology, targeted penetration testing of the product to improve its security, or potentially working with a government department to test deploy the offering.
After winning the competition, the iProov team also had the opportunity to give a 4-minute presentation on the conference’s Spotlight Stage during the networking evening of day 2 and was featured on BBC Radio4’s You&Yours and itv’s Good Morning Britain.
