Highlights and other news

This lecture series discusses the business of security consultancy. It doesn't teach security - you should know that stuff already. I discuss what to charge, how to package your services, how to plan your engagements and more. With document templates to download and more. No exams, no certificates. Just advice and ideas to think about. This course has had glowing reviews from numerous respected industry figures. £127 for 12 months access.

I was recently a guest of Joe Saunders on his Managing Violence Podcast. It was a great conversation, and I didn't hold back on my opinions on workplace violence or the industry that has sprung up around it. Check out Joe's website and give him your support - he's a great guy.
