Cybersecurity firm ThreatQuotient throws support behind Rhino conservation

ThreatQuotient has adopted four rhinos in South Africa

Cybersecurity vendor ThreatQuotient is highlighting efforts to protect rhinos ahead of World Rhino Day on September 22.

Last year, ThreatQuotient became an official partner of Helping Rhinos, a charity organisation that helps protects rhinos from poachers. There are less than 30,000 rhinos in the world today.

To date, ThreatQuotient has adopted four rhinos to represent each global region the company operates in. For World Rhino Day 2020, ThreatQuotient is sponsoring a member of South Africa’s first all-female anti-poaching unit, Black Mambas, named Nocry. The Black Mamba patrols 50,000 hectares of the Balule Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park, South Africa, raising awareness of the rhino poaching crisis in surrounding villages.

“The rhino has been a central part of ThreatQuotient’s culture since it was selected as the company mascot in 2013, and since 2018 we have consistently supported rhino conservation efforts through a variety of creative campaigns,” said John Czupak, president and CEO, ThreatQuotient. “ThreatQuotient looks forward to adopting and sponsoring additional rhinos as our global customer base continues to grow.”

ThreatQuotient’s support of Helping Rhinos enables conservation education programs in the areas surrounding Kariega Game Reserve that reduces the likelihood of community members turning to poaching, keeps the Kariega anti-poaching unit up and running and enables them to keep rhinos safe within their area of operation. Each rhino adoption provides milk, food and essential medication for the rhinos, as well as security and overall maintenance of the rhino facilities and the orphanage.

“With many international travel restrictions put in place this year due to COVID-19, tourism that generates funds for wildlife protection has significantly slowed. We are grateful for ThreatQuotient’s continued support, and especially for the creative ways their team has pursued to generate donations for Helping Rhinos,” said Simon Jones, CEO, Helping Rhinos.

ThreatQuotient has pledged to donate $1 to Helping Rhinos for every badge scanned at the company’s booth during many industry events. For example, at RSA Conference 2020, nearly 1,000 attendees eagerly participated. While plans for in-person events have been drastically altered for the rest of 2020 and into the future, ThreatQuotient will continue to make donations based on badge scans and other campaigns focused on industry events, the company says.
