BRINGING CLARITY TO THE COMPLEX.

Welcome to Secure Disruptions, a new kind of cybersecurity publisher for business owners, board directors, and non-technical decision-makers. You’ve read enough headlines to know that security doesn’t live exclusively with IT anymore. You want to play a more active role in developing a risk-focused cybersecurity approach, but don’t have time for technical jargon that no one understands.

Think of us as your cybersecurity guide for the technically perplexed. This is Security for Humans.

WHAT WE DO

We help executives, business owners, and board directors learn about technology risks and take ownership of security practices. We deliver research done on financials, cyber-security and a ever-growing market that depend on digital resilience for long-term corporate health.

We deliver short, engaging briefs specifically geared towards non-technical executives. Our weekly newsletters explain everything you wish your security team would tell you, if only they know how. We give you tools to understand digital risks so you can make better decisions that keep your company secure.

Learn a new principle of cyber-security each week – no-nonsense and jargon-free.
