Former head of GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, on the greatest threat to the UK’s security

Plexal - Robert Hannigan 2

On this week’s podcast, TEISS talks with Robert Hannigan, former head of GCHQ at the launch of the London Office for Rapid Cybersecurity Advancement (LORCA), an accelerator for cyber security start-ups, which was officially opened last week by former Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Matt Hancock (pictured).

Robert shares his thoughts on how the UK is currently faring when it comes to cyber security, which cyber protocols he’d like to see put in place, as well as why he won’t be racing back to Whitehall anytime soon.

We’ll also be hearing from two of the start-ups included in the first LORCA cohort; B-Secur which specialises in using biometric heartbeat as an authentication solution and Zone Fox – an insider threat detection solution.
