As we all know, Cybersecurity has been a hot topic, and continues to be so, given the advent of COVID19. Today, we are starting to see threat vectors emerge from that like we have never seen before, especially when it comes to heisting the Personal Identifiable Information (PII) of victims, especially when it comes to Phishing Emails and going to spoofed websites.
As a result, many Cybersecurity companies are now investing serious $$$ into investing new products and services. As a result, investing into these Cybersecurity companies has taken a huge increase. We learn more about this investing realm, as we learn first hand from Hank Thomas, who leads a firm in this regard.
SCVX is the first cybersecurity-focused Special Purpose Acquisition Corporation (SPAC), a publicly-traded company that IPO’d on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in January 2020. With a $230 million pool of capital raised via the public markets and access to significantly more capital through its largest investors, the flexibility of the SPAC allows cybersecurity companies to be integrated into one multi-capability security platform.
