Rapid7 announces the Rapid7 Cybersecurity Foundation to promote access and inclusion in cybersecurity

apid7 , a leading provider of security analytics and

R automation , has announced the formation of the

Rapid7 Cybersecurity Foundation – a 501 ( c )( 3 ) private foundation , receiving all of its initial US $ 1 million in funding from Rapid7 .
The Rapid7 Cybersecurity Foundation ’ s mission is to close the security achievement gap by making cybersecurity easier to access for the underrepresented and underserved . It aims to democratise cybersecurity by promoting a diverse and inclusive cyberworkforce ; supporting free and open security solutions ; and advocating for those that often lack a voice in advancing security .
“ The creation of the Rapid7 Cybersecurity Foundation is a natural extension of Rapid7 ’ s focus on social good and our work to advance security for all ,” said Corey Thomas , Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Rapid7 , and Chair of the Rapid7 Cybersecurity Foundation . “ Through the Foundation , we can further advance cybersecurity as a whole , with a particular focus on closing the security achievement gap in underrepresented , underserved and under-resourced communities .”
“ Work like this , that supports a larger , more diverse cyberworkforce and helps under-resourced organisations defend themselves , is badly needed ,” added Kelly Born , Director of the Cyber Initiative at the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation , “ Too few are working to increase access , inclusion and online safety for under-served and under-represented communities . It is heartening to see companies like Rapid7 stepping into this critical space .” www . intelligentciso . com
