Immersive Labs raises $75 million to improve its cybersecurity skills platform

Immersive Labs raised $75 million to accelerate the delivery of a new progressive new Cyber Workforce optimization platform, which uses data insights to understand where skills are required to then add role-specific training.

“With cyber risk becoming a problem for a growing number of business functions, cybersecurity knowledge and skills should no longer be the preserve of a few technical people hidden away in a back office. Everyone from the teams who build software to the CEO now needs to play their part in addressing a pervasive company issue. This requires unlocking and evidencing skills in a much broader group of people,” said James Hadley, CEO and founder of Immersive Labs. 

Immersive Labs said that it will also use the funding to expand its international presence by tripling its global headcount to 600 across APAC and Europe.
