Cynch is a Melbourne based startup on a mission to help business leaders prevent a cybersecurity incident from becoming one of the worst days of their career. We partner with business owners, continuously profiling their cyber risks and providing them with everything they need to build their Cyber Fitness.
Every business is being targeted by cyber attacks - a cyber incident is a matter of when not if.
Smaller businesses feel the devastating impacts of these cyber attacks both professionally and personally, and Cynch is determined to bring cyber fitness to them all.
The Cynch co-founders met whilst both working at one of Australia’s most iconic institutions, Australia Post. They founded Cynch Security in mid 2017 after recognising how woefully undeserved small business leaders were by the cybersecurity industry, initially building the concepts behind the membership at night and on weekends.
In October 2018, Cynch was incorporated as a company with the founders dedicating themselves towards bringing the business to the public. The team joined the Cyrise Accelerator program, a joint venture between Dimension Data and Deakin University, and Australia’s only cybersecurity-focused accelerator program, later that same month.
