Human risk is one of those security challenges that affects all organizations — from small businesses to the largest enterprises. The problem, as research shows, is that 82% of breaches involve the human element, meaning that enterprises need to have an answer to user errors if they want to protect their environments. 

The only way to address these risks is with consistent, scenario-based training. Training and cyberattack simulations have the potential to empower employees to embrace security-conscious behavior, while teaching security teams to remediate incidents in the shortest time possible.

Today, Immersive Labs announced it has raised $66 million in funding led by Ten Eleven Ventures for its Cyber Workforce Resilience platform, a solution designed to enable organizations to continually assess security awareness for employees, cybersecurity teams and executives with realistic simulations and security labs. 

Regular resilience-testing has the potential to highlight gaps in employee security knowledge and provide an opportunity to teach employees how they can better protect critical systems and data.
