The Record: How war shifted the plans of one Ukrainian cybersecurity entrepreneur


“Each person brings their local experience in cyber defense and it helps to better understand and identify cyber threats.”

  • Founded in 2015 by tech entrepreneur Andrii Bezverkhyi and two of his Ukrainian colleagues, cybersecurity startup SOC Prime rewards researchers for creating threat-detection algorithms, marketing itself as the Spotify of the cybersecurity world, drawing a parallel to how the Swedish audio streaming giant pays royalties to artists. It works with 600 freelance researchers globally.
