Speaking of the partnership, Founder & President of Spire Solutions, Sanjeev Walia said “The GCC nations and Egypt are some of the largest energy, logistics, transportation, and finance hubs in the world, making them attractive targets for cyber attackers. Cybersecurity professionals need to constantly upskill their knowledge and hands-on experience is crucial. By teaming up with Cyberbit to deliver advanced cybersecurity skills development, we will address the human element, reduce business risks and strengthen cybersecurity in the region.”
Cyberbit’s advanced platform covers the entire cyber skilling spectrum from cyber skills development and experiential learning to team and individual performance assessment in real-world scenarios.

Cyberbit analysts use real-world networks and real-world security tools, giving them the hands-on experience they need to successfully prevent and mitigate real-world attacks.
Speaking of the advantages of the collaboration with Spire, a representative of Cyberbit stated: “We are very excited to be partnering with Spire Solutions as part of the greater effort to reduce business risk in the Middle East Gulf states and Egypt. The partnership will allow Spire Solutions to help its customers leverage the Cyberbit platform to improve incident response times and better utilize the human element of cyber defense.”
