Onapsis | May 05, 2022
Onapsis, the market leader in business-critical application cybersecurity and compliance, announced today a collaboration with nonprofit education provider NextGen Cyber Talent to help establish cybersecurity job possibilities for underprivileged talent. NextGen Cyber Talent is the newest addition to the company's Onapsis Cares (OnaCares) charitable portfolio, which comprises the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
According to the (ISC)² Cybersecurity Workforce Study, the global cybersecurity workforce must expand by 65% in order to effectively secure organizations' important assets. However, the scarcity of educational resources for underrepresented populations puts substantial impediments in the way of their youngsters pursuing lifetime careers in cybersecurity. The cooperation between Onapsis and NextGen Cyber Talent is intended to reach out to young professionals in these areas and help the underserved section of potential students via training and job placements.
“While the skills gap has become a prevalent challenge in the cybersecurity community, not enough opportunity is given to underserved and underprivileged talent. At Onapsis, we participate in programs that align with our mission statement of making a positive societal impact through educational and philanthropic initiatives. We’re thrilled to partner with NextGen Cyber Talent and provide young professionals with educational resources that will open doors in their cybersecurity careers and lead them to higher-paid employment.”
Mariano Nunez, CEO of Onapsis
In 2017, the OnaCares mission was officially founded. With the acquisition of NextGen Cyber Talent, Onapsis is able to expand on its mission statement. Onapsis will be at the SAP Sapphire conference in Orlando, Florida from May 10 to 12, the RSA Conference in San Francisco from June 6 to 9, and the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit in National Harbor, Maryland from June 7 to 10. The firm invites all guests to interact with Onapsis and give monies to NextGen Cyber Talent at these events. Visit Onapsis at SAP Sapphire by clicking here or RSA by clicking here.
Krishnan Chellakarai, Founder and Co-Chairman of NextGen Cyber Talent said that “Addressing the cybersecurity talent shortage starts with enhancing diversity and inclusion in the industry. By bringing cybersecurity experts, providers, and enterprises together, we can make a difference in the community. Our partnership with Onapsis will help us reach this end goal and provide the younger generation with more opportunities to advance their cybersecurity careers."

AdvIntel | October 01, 2021
AdvIntel, a leading cybersecurity threat prevention and loss avoidance company with a unique and unparalleled ability to detect and disrupt ransomware and KPMG LLP, the global audit, tax and advisory firm, today announced an alliance around AdvIntel's "Andariel" Threat Prevention & Loss Avoidance Platform.
The profile of ransomware victims has moved upmarket over the past year as the adversaries have enhanced their capabilities faster than cyber defenses at an alarming trend.
The state of the current cyber security market is full of uncertainties. The current breach response is traditionally reactive, leading to a breach after a breach. Now, with the unique alliance, we are effectively reversing the traditional breach paradigm with the vision to disrupt breaches before they turn into ransomware. Our goal is to bring the world closer to a ransomware-free future via the proactive and preventative breach response.
According to AdvIntel CEO, Vitali Kremez
Andariel' s ability to track botnet initial compromises enables AdvIntel' s customers to take action before data and personally identifiable information is leaked, which could prevent regulatory, reputational, and legal losses related to data breach legal liability.
Ed Goings, KPMG National Lead for Cyber Response Services stated "Intelligence of this level is a complete game changer. Many companies state they provide threat intelligence, but this is the first time I have seen actionable intelligence that can be used to potentially identify corporate ransomware attacks before they happen."
Moreover, some of the tracked botnets have a unique relationship with some of the monitored ransomware families. Therefore, by timely identifying botnet activity in their systems, AdvIntel's clients can identify and potentially avert tremendous losses from ransomware attacks.
Incident response case support through Andariel enables a corporate cyber investigation team by providing immediate information on the "patient zero", the way cyber infection spreads through the system, as well as the vulnerabilities which lead to the compromise. Andariel aims to significantly decrease the time and resources spent on investigations, as well as to decrease the insurance claims and coverage of the remediation effort.
AdvIntel and KPMG will jointly go to market to combat cyber incidents, by providing early-warning alerting, applied threat detection, and long-term strategic threat intelligence. AdvIntel and KPMG are already working jointly with several cyber insurance providers around the threat prevention and loss avoidance needs of their customer base.
AdvIntel is the world's first and only cybercrime and adversarial disruption firm which leverages Andariel, a next-generation threat prevention and loss avoidance platform which has visibility beyond a company's own internal network. Andariel sheds light on the botnet and breach ecosystem in order to spot threats and compromises preemptively and proactively. Whether prolific botnets, ransomware syndicates, cyber extortionists, carders, advanced persistent threat groups, or crimeware operators, Andariel ensures ultimate visibility into these threats before they actualize and do harm.
