The investment will accelerate delivery of a progressive new Cyber Workforce Optimization platform. With cyber risk no longer confined to technical specialists, expert skills are now required across the entire organization.
From crisis management with executives to secure software development amongst engineers and ensuring compliance in legal teams, the platform will use data insights to understand where skills are required and inject role-specific training. It will also enable board-level metrics and benchmarking.
Immersive Labs, which has now received $123m in venture funding, currently counts organizations such as HSBC, Vodafone and the NHS as customers.
As well as building out the platform, Immersive Labs will use the funding to expand its international presence, tripling global headcount to 600 over the next two years and establishing operations in new regions throughout APAC and Europe.
Since founding in 2017, Immersive Labs has grown to over 200 people, with joint operations HQs in Bristol and Boston.
