“We are thrilled to enter into this agreement with Pratum and bring their unique services, talent, and expertise in cybersecurity to HBS,” said Peter Helander, HBS CEO. “Now, more than ever, strong cyber defense is vital in protecting organizations of all sizes across all industries. The Pratum team will add additional superior cybersecurity solutions so we will be even better equipped to safeguard clients against cyberattacks.”
