Cyacomb is working towards a world where there is no place that harmful digital content can be easily hidden or shared. It is delivering tools that place the investigative capability of cutting edge digital forensic science into
the hands of frontline policing.

The company’s core product offers fast digital triage so that law enforcement can identify offending material within minutes, rather than the hours or days of traditional forensic techniques. Proven on-the-ground within the UK and international law enforcement, its technology delivers fast results, reduces backlogs in digital forensics labs, decreases risk and leads to the faster safeguarding of children and other vulnerable people.

In 2019, SIS Ventures invested almost £150,000 as part of a £1.5m investment round with other significant co-investment partners including Mercia Asset Management, Triple Point and Scottish Investment Bank.

The company has gone on to complete a £5m+ Series A investment round and commercialised a further product, Cyacomb Safety. This product facilitates effective content moderation and blocking for social media and cloud companies. Described by the UK Government as offering ‘game-changing’ technology, Cyacomb is now focused on launching new products, expanding internationally, and creating greater impact.
