Cybersecurity training company Immersive Labs Inc. today unveiled the expansion of its artificial intelligence-ready platform with coverage across the entire organization through its new Workforce Exercising solution.

The solution has been designed to address the issue of the “human element” being responsible for the majority of security breaches. It leverages behavioral science techniques with relatable content to immerse employees in vital cyber capabilities and best practices.

Workforce Exercising is said to allow cyber leaders to assess different departments, such as high-value targets like finance and supply chain teams, to gain insights through the Immersive Labs Resilience Score to identify and fill skills gaps before it’s too late.

The new release includes robust measurement and reporting on cyber capabilities, the company says. As employees complete exercises, the solution gives chief information security officers a color-coded dashboard featuring percentages of risk by security topics, such as social engineering, physical security and phishing across teams and individuals. It also provides a detailed breakdown of risk by team and individuals, pinpointing where more upskilling is needed.

Using the Immersive Labs Platform to upskill people, CISOs are offered an overall resilience score against industry benchmarks and best practices, allowing them to see progress over time. The score measures an organization’s workforce preparedness for cyberattacks and breaches based on Immersive Labs benchmarking data across industry verticals and helps organizations identify weaknesses in their teams’ cyber capabilities and address them based on data.

“With cyberthreats continuing to mount against organizations and their people, leaders need confidence — backed by data — that their entire workforce is ready for the next attack,” founder and Chief Executive James Hadley said. “Our expanded, enterprise-class platform will give leaders full cyber skills and resilience coverage so that they can rest assured their teams and individuals at every level are prepared to confront the latest threats.”

Immersive Labs is a venture capital-backed startup, having raised $189 million from investors, according to Tracxn, including a round of $75 million in 2021. Investors in the company include Insight Partners LLC, Menlo Ventures LLC, Citi Ventures LLC and Goldman Sachs Asset Management L.P.
