New episodes are being constantly added, and supplemented with quarterly updates on security and privacy and in the same format.

A Different Approach to Behavioral Change

We just don’t believe that in order to speak to adults, to change their behavior, you need to be that clever. No actors or drama, stick figures or animation, puzzles are escape rooms. And yes, not even ninjas.

Just a casual and engaging conversation with a believable and persuasive expert, and with just the right subsurface messages. That’s security and privacy are everyone’s business. That good security is not difficult. That this is a fight against bad people and fight for all of us. That good security is about little more than good decisions, and much more.

Hosting Options

  • If you have your own LMS, we can simply upload the videos (all are SCORM compliant).
