Our training team secures clients big and small from a wide gamut of threats, solving complex problems to ensure our clients remain secure. We bring every ounce of this real-world experience with us into every session.

We’re a people-first company. While we might own hacker standard-issue black hoodies and sit on the computer all day, that’s far from all we do. We love getting out and about to preach what we practice in a fun and engaging way, delivering memorable and valuable sessions for all that attend.


Our Approach

We understand that each client is unique, and by delving into your requirements, we can develop a training course that surpasses your expectations. During our scoping process, we engage in detailed conversations to gather vital information about your organisation, including:

Our team will discuss your specific IT environment to get a basic understanding of how IT powers your organisation. This allows us to craft a training course that directly tackles the security challenges specific to your systems and infrastructure.

We take into account the diverse skill levels of your team members. Whether you have seasoned IT professionals or people that are just starting to consider how cyber security applies to their role, we ensure that our training course is accessible, engaging, and caters to the needs of all participants. By creating an inclusive learning environment, we empower individuals to enhance their understanding of cybersecurity best practices.

Identifying the common security issues that plague your organisation is essential to our approach. We delve into the root causes of these challenges, dissecting them to create targeted training modules that address your specific pain points. Our goal is to equip your team with the knowledge and skills to mitigate risks effectively.

We collaborate closely with you to determine your desired security goals and outcomes. By understanding your vision for a more secure organisation, we can tailor the training course to achieve precisely that. Our focus is on providing practical knowledge and actionable strategies that will drive measurable improvements in your overall security posture.

Understanding your preferences regarding the training format, such as in-person sessions or virtual classrooms, allows us to deliver the course in the most suitable manner. Additionally, knowing your preferred training duration helps us structure the course effectively, ensuring that the content is covered comprehensively while aligning with your time constraints and operational requirements.

Sharing information about past security incidents or breaches can provide valuable context. Understanding the types of incidents, their impact and any specific vulnerabilities that led to them allows us to prioritise and address those areas in the training course. It helps us develop targeted content to mitigate similar risks in the future.

Knowledge of your organisation’s existing security policies and procedures enables us to align the training content with your internal guidelines. We can focus on reinforcing policy adherence, promoting a culture of security awareness, and educating participants on how to apply these policies effectively in their day-to-day works.


The outcome of this scoping stage is a clear proposal outlining the course content, structure and a timeline for its customisation and delivery.

Our experienced team of cyber security professionals and trainers don’t do generic training materials. Every opportunity is taken to customise the course, crafting it with engaging, dynamic, and interactive content that captures the attention of your team members and delivers lasting impact.

We leverage our in-depth knowledge of the latest cyber threats, industry best practices, and emerging trends as practitioners to create an up-to-date and relevant training curriculum. Our trainers possess real-world experience and practical expertise, allowing them to share valuable insights and demonstrate the practical application of security concepts within your specific context.

In addition to theoretical knowledge, our courses incorporate hands-on exercises, simulations, and case studies, where relevant, that encourage active learning and critical thinking. By providing practical examples and opportunities for participants to apply their knowledge in realistic scenarios, we ensure that the training is not only informative but also highly engaging and memorable.

Our cyber awareness courses can be delivered virtually or in person, giving flexible options to minimise disruption and maximise value. Our trainers are skilled at delivering engaging and dynamic training sessions that captivate participants from start to finish. We utilise a variety of teaching methods, including interactive presentations, group discussions, practical exercises, and demonstrations, to cater to different learning styles and ensure maximum knowledge retention.

During the training sessions, we emphasise real-world examples and practical application, allowing participants to grasp concepts easily and understand how they relate to their specific roles and responsibilities. We encourage a dynamic learning environment with questions, discussions, and knowledge sharing among participants. If we didn’t, the course would be boring for us to deliver, and we often get super smart people attending our courses, so it’s nice when we all learn from each other.

We want every relationship with our clients to extend far beyond the completion of the training course. As part of this, we offer ongoing support to ensure that the knowledge gained during the training is effectively applied within the organisation.

Our training team is always available to address any questions, concerns, or clarifications that may arise in the future. We understand that cyber threats are constantly evolving, and new challenges may emerge over time. Therefore, we stand ready to assist with any security-related queries or provide additional guidance as needed.

We value the enduring relationships we have with our clients, so should you require a refresher session on any topics covered in the course or seek further guidance, we are more than happy to arrange follow-up sessions. Our aim is to be your trusted security partner, and we’re in it for the long haul.
