Spire Solutions, a value-added distributor and cybersecurity solutions provider and Cyberbit, provider of cybersecurity skills development and readiness platform, have announced a strategic partnership.
The collaboration aims to strengthen cybersecurity across the GCC countries and Egypt and educate leaders about the importance of the human element in cybersecurity.
Cyberbit’s platform covers the entire cyber skilling spectrum from cyber skills development and experiential learning to team and individual performance assessment in real-world scenarios.
The platform emphasises the human element of cyber defence and includes the hyper realistic cyber range, giving cybersecurity professionals the opportunity to practice against simulated real-world cyberattacks in a virtual security operations centre.
Analysts use real-world networks and real-world security tools, giving them the hands-on experience, they need to successfully prevent and mitigate real-world attacks.
Sanjeev Walia, founder and president of Spire Solutions said “The GCC nations and Egypt are some of the largest energy, logistics, transportation and finance hubs in the world, making them attractive targets for cyberattackers. Cybersecurity professionals need to constantly upskill their knowledge and hands-on experience is crucial. By teaming up with Cyberbit to deliver advanced cybersecurity skills development, we will address the human element, reduce business risks and strengthen cybersecurity in the region.”
