About XQ Cyber

Our background is in ‘white hat’ hacking. In other words, in a world of cyber espionage and criminality, we roll like the bad guys (even though we’re the good guys.) We believe that cyber security should be less complex and better value. We’re on a mission to make our customers' digital lives better by helping them to mitigate technology risk, to innovate faster and to thrive in the information age.

We specialize in transforming offensive cyber expertise and tradecraft into business value. We do three things: we support customers in the real world with advice and guidance; we conduct laboratory and field research, often in collaboration with partners; and, armed with new insight, we develop innovative solutions and services to solve difficult, thorny issues.

Started in 2015 by David, Matt, Andy and Richard, XQ is now 16 strong and growing fast. Backed by an investment team with a proven track record in starting and scaling tech businesses, we’re about to conclude second-round funding. As part of this, we have developed a highly disruptive cyber security testing and risk rating service called CyberScore™, which we believe will revolutionise cyber security in companies and supply chains across the globe.
