Success! You're on the list.

Feature film-style training video that fits your learning habits, helping you improve both awareness and skills to protect yourself, your loved ones and your employer against cyber attacks.

A great community and engineering support – for the upgrade of your Smart Home or any other tech project you have on your plate. You are not alone with your digital challenge!

What drives us:

Our requirement for ourselves is to offer IT security training that is so attractive that users would voluntarily complete it in their free time and pay for it with their own money. Especially with an eye on future generations who have grown up with social media and gamification and whose attention span is continually decreasing.
