ThreatQuotient, is partnering with Helping Rhinos, a charity organization focused on providing a sustainable future for rhinos. As an official supporter, ThreatQuotient aims to bring awareness to rhino conservation efforts and to raise money for initiatives that will ensure protection of the endangered species. The rhino has been a symbol of strength and steadiness for ThreatQuotient since it was selected as the official mascot in 2013, and this partnership marks a next step in ThreatQuotient’s goal to contribute positive change for the fortunes of the rhino.
Less than 30,000 rhino remain in the world today, and Helping Rhinos is leading innovative approaches to conservation that will preserve and develop new habitat for rhino, and protect rhino from poaching and the illegal wildlife trade. They provide information and education to both local and global communities on the importance of sustaining rhino populations in their natural habitat, and create scalable, sustainable projects that will ensure the long-term survival of rhinos and other endangered wildlife. In honor of World Rhino Day, taking place on Sept. 22, 2019, ThreatQuotient adopted a baby rhino named Mthetho, which means “justice” in the local isiXhosa language.
“We believe that people join ThreatQuotient to do something special, and I am proud that our culture has grown over the years to pursue missions that extend beyond building a leading cybersecurity company,” says John Czupak, CEO of ThreatQuotient. “Partnering with Helping Rhinos is another opportunity for our ‘Crash’, the term for a group of rhinos and what we fondly call our team, to make a difference not only in our local Virginia community, but on a global scale.”
“We admire ThreatQuotient’s passion for rhino conservation and are grateful for their formal support,” says Simon Jones, CEO of Helping Rhinos. “We have experienced significant growth thanks to our supporters and volunteers, and ThreatQuotient’s efforts to educate others about this mission of Helping Rhinos will undoubtedly have a positive impact on protecting rhino in their natural habitat.”
