Right-Hand Cybersecurity, a Phoenix, AZ-based company specializing in human risk management for cybersecurity, has successfully raised $5 million in Series A funding. The funding round was led by AZ-VC, and the company plans to use the funds to expand across the US and Asia Pacific and invest in the development of its platform.
Founded and led by CEO Theo Nasser, Right-Hand Cybersecurity has created a platform that takes a people-centric approach to improving employee behaviors that could otherwise lead to potentially catastrophic cybersecurity breaches. The company’s human risk management platform collects employee security behaviors and real-time alerts from its current platform and other endpoint detection and response (EDR), email security, and identity and access management (IAM) technologies.
The platform then assigns risk scores to various behaviors that can be easily interpreted by key stakeholders to gain insight into employee risk through simple business operations. By analyzing aggregated employee data, the platform provides real-time, interactive and adaptive training that empowers individuals to develop cybersecurity behaviors that not only protect their organization, but also themselves while online.
As Right Cybersecurity continues to expand its reach and improve its platform, it is poised to revolutionize the way businesses approach and address human risk factors in the cybersecurity environment. In doing so, the company is poised to help organizations build more effective and proactive defenses against cyber threats.
