2016 saw the completion of the pilot cohort of CSIT labs. The first cohort of companies began in January of this year, and culminated in a Demo-day to showcase their journey of commercial and technological discovery.

The 5 companies who saw the programme through to completion were:-

B Secur and CSIT Labs

“The partnership that we have developed with CSIT has been hugely significant. We have been able to work alongside some of the brightest minds in the UK, as we develop our pioneering ECG biometric technology that will help answer the threat of increasing cyber based activity. The partnership is also opening the door and exposing B-Secur, and our technology, to some of the world’s largest organisations determined to counter cybercrime and cyber terrorism. We look forward to continue driving this important partnership into 2017 and beyond.” – Alan Foreman, CEO of B Secur.
