About Us

Our approach

We believe that organisations need to understand how their key business functions are enabled through cyberspace so that they can make informed and effective decisions.  No amount of measures can eliminate the risk of a cyber incident but informed decision making can reduce this risk at the lowest possible cost to the organisation.

We provide scenario and contingency training to help organisations understand how well they could respond to an incident.  We use our experience of real cyber operations, combined with an academic approach, to deliver realistic and grounded experiences that will enable your organisation to learn quickly and effectively.

Our vision

We believe that all businesses should be able to understand their cyber dependence in the same way that they can understand financial reporting.  We do not believe that everyone needs to be a cyber security expert for the same reasons that not everyone needs to be an accountant.
