HackNotice, a company that enables employees to identify and defend against cyber threats, has bagged $7m in a Series A round.
The round was led by Strategic Cyber Ventures, a venture capital firm that focuses on funding firms that impact privacy, cybersecurity and company resiliency.
HackNotice claims thousands of employees use its platform daily to understand and protect themselves, their colleagues, families and business from cyberattacks.
The company’s platform enables employees to learn how hackers are threatening them, encouraging workers to collaborate with the security team and take action to prevent cyberattacks. The analytics and reporting tool in HackNotice gives security teams visibility into their risk on a per employee/department basis.
HackNotice will use the funding to expand the business and help firms fight the cybersecurity ‘epidemic’.
HackNotice CEO and co-founder Steve Thomas said, “HackNotice believes that threat awareness is the future of employee-based cybersecurity. Proactive cybersecurity is a priority for businesses because of the constant increase in ransomware and cyber-attacks. HackNotice provides companies with a best-in-class threat awareness platform, filling in the employee security and threat awareness gap. Our platform is designed to help businesses strengthen their security posture company wide.”
Strategic Cyber Ventures principal Chris Ahern added, “Traditional security training and awareness is an established industry with questionable ROI. HackNotice democratizes threat intelligence about employees by providing that data straight to the employee themselves. This leads to better alignment of incentives between employee and employer and is the start of a new market: Threat Awareness.”
Software supply chain security firm Chainguard recently scored $50m in a Series A funding round headed by Sequoia Capital.
