Our Strategy: Proprietary Two-pronged Approach

   Hard Skills + Soft Skills

Whether developing new training or enhancing existing curriculum, one key element runs through all our initiatives: the Cyber FoundationsTM hard and soft skills approach. We have learned that what has been missing in cybersecurity strategies are the intelligence skills that allow for thinking beyond just locking down firewalls.

   Skillfully Identifying Breach Origins

Our participants learn that many security incidents are due to human error rather than insufficient technology, and how to deftly spot and handle these situations. We also consider relationships across broader information sources and strive to put new data quickly into its proper context.


Our Team: A Blend of Expertise

Our Consortium's network of experts is comprised of leaders from the defense, intelligence,
special operations and academic communities.
