‘Cybersecurity without Insanity’ Workshops

I have worked with many regulated financial services firms, as well as many businesses trying to sell to such firms.

I have seen the same problems over and over again.

My workshops show you what I have seen, so you can avoid the same mistakes.


Workshop 1: For regulated financial services firms

Many regulated financial services firms believe they are aligned to the expectations of their regulators.

And yet, whenever a regulator like the Central Bank of Ireland does a thematic inspection, they continue to find the same blindspots.

My online workshop for regulated financial services firms shows you the blindspots, how they arise, and how you can address them.

The workshop describes the key concerns of the CBI and the steps you can take to deal with these concerns.

Workshop 2: For small businesses selling to larger organisations

If you a small business trying to sell to larger firms but you are finding it difficult to get in the door, I may know why.

You think you are a solution, but they may perceive you as a risk.

And when it comes to risk, cybersecurity risk may be top of their list.

My SME online workshop will show you how to get your cybersecurity measures are up to scratch and aligned to benchmarks that large enterprises recognise.

    The finer details

    Attendee Limit: Each workshop is restricted to 5 attendees, so everyone gets a chance to ask questions and clarify their understanding.

    2. You will not lose your sanity.
    3. You will leave the session with a very clear view on what you need to focus on right now.

    If I fail on any of these 3 guarantees, you will get your money back.
