Why Does All This Matter?

Would you want a football coach for a professional team that never played football? Or worse yet, had never been in the stands to even watch a game? We're in this - we're embedded - this is what we do. We build security awareness training programs that get at the heart of where risk lies, and our programs are based on real world knowledge and years of experience seeing what works and doesn't work.
