Plexal Cyber Lates

November 4 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Join us for networking drinks and a power panel on pilots

About this event

Plexal’s growing the UK’s most connected cyber community.

Join us for our Cyber Lates event this November: the second in a series of meetups for technology and cybersecurity innovators, investors and leaders.

Our speaker lineup is worth leaving the house for:

  • Simeon Quarrie, founder or VIVIDA, which earned a contract with Lloyds Banking Group following a pilot
  • Katie Hewitt, senior manager of security innovation at Lloyds Banking Group
  • Haydn Brooks, co-founder and CEO of Risk Ledger: a startup that is securing the NHS Test and Trace app following a successful pilot.

We will also be joined by Tech London Advocates founder Russ Shaw, who will speak to our director of innovation Saj Huq about the TLA Cyber community and his views on the future of the growing sector.


Pilots can be a powerful way for cyber startups to sell their technology to large enterprises and the government.

But how do you design a pilot to maximise your chances of it resulting in a contract?

How can startups protect themselves?

And what should a large enterprise know before partnering with a startup to run a pilot or proof of concept?

Join us for a panel discussion at 5.30pm and have your say. We’ll then enjoy networking drinks from 6.15pm. Come along to meet Plexal’s cyber innovation team and get to know our community – including our cyber startup members.
