CyberSmart, a London, UK-based cybersecurity company, raised £5.5m in Series A funding.
The round was led by IQ Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to grow operations and its business reach.
Led by Jamie Akhtar, CEO, CyberSmart provides a cybersecurity platform that enables small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to combat the constant threat of cyber-attacks and increasing regulation in an ever-evolving technological landscape and increasingly connected digital operating space.
Born out of a GCHQ accelerator in 2017, the company was created by a group of security experts, who noticed that many companies needed to secure themselves and achieve information security standards, but ultimately found the process too complicated or were limited by financial or human resources.
