The cybersecurity and other digital skills programmes company HackerU announced the acquisition of Cybint, a global SaaS-based cyber education company.
This acquisition not only grows HackerU’s geographic footprint, but also expands and scales up the company’s B2B offerings to reskill and upskill learners along all points in their career. The company rebrands itself as ThriveDX to put the spotlight on its core mission of helping prepare the workforce for digital transformation.
The global need for cybersecurity expertise is overwhelming. HackerU has been working to close this gap by providing digital workforce training to students, post-graduate professionals, and the community in the U.S., Europe and Asia exclusively through partnerships with top-tier universities.
