A combination of cybersecurity and edtech? It’s no surprise that Baltimore investors would be interested in Cybrary.

The Greenbelt-based MOOC maker for cybersecurity raised $1.3 million in seed funding with help from a pair of area investors, sister site Technical.ly DC reported.

Ron Gula, the founder of Tenable Network Security who recently left his day-to-day responsibilities running the company, was listed as a leader of the round. Inner Loop Capital, the North Baltimore firm led by Justin Label, was also an investor. Members of Baltimore Angels also invested in the round.

Joining Gula in the lead investor role was Arthur Ventures, a Fargo-based firm that also invested in Baltimore-based Protenus earlier this year.

Cybrary is set to focus on product development of its education tools for cybersecurity. The company is taking aim at the talent gap that leads to a shortage of cybersecurity workers.
