training would consume a lot of my time, which like most people's, is scarce. After going through the training, I can say that not only is it not time consuming, but it is a very profitable time, which I am glad to have dedicated to strengthening my knowledge in this area and incorporating best practices.
“During the training, there was a moment of epiphany: I understood that my cyber security is as important as my personal security. And I also understood that the real firewall is me, rather than the devices and software that I use, or even my CTO. That is, implementing best practices, which certainly involves adopting the best technology but is highly driven by my behaviors, is the optimal way to protect my digital avatar.
“On the other hand, prior to going through the Blueprint training, I didn’t realize that (and certainly how much so) as a Board Member, I can be a liability and a source of cyber(in)security (at best) and cyber breach and harm (at worst) to the organization I’m on the Board of because of the organization’s confidential information I have access to. If I get breached and the confidential files get stolen, I’m a source of harm for the organization and for myself. If my digital security practices are not the best, I can compromise the security of those stakeholders.
“This Blueprint not only helped me rectify my own behaviors and practices but also gave me an entire Board strategy for creating a culture of cybersecurity in my organization (across all Board, executive and employee ranks). After the training, I was actually able to build a cybersecurity plan for my family and key stakeholders in my organization. I truly believe I became the standard bearer – an authentic example – of cyber-safe culture for myself, my family and my organization and am grateful that the Blueprint helped me develop a cybersecurity-driven culture in my organization and family, and allowed me to achieve this transformation despite being a non-technical person!
“The training instruction is communicated expertly and is excellent. The course is engaging and its format is suitable for people with limited time. The information is very clear and valuable.
“I really liked that the training is accompanied by citations that serve to validate the learning, and I loved the format structure and organization of information into digestible Modules that have a consistent structure across Modules, making information easy to understand, with every major subject treated separately in a concise and direct way. And the Executive Summaries of each Module are an extremely valuable material to have on hand and consult at any time.
“Also, I believe that at least 60% of the information I learned in the Blueprint is genuinely something that I (not my CTO or even assistant) need to implement myself. And while Andrzej and the instructors made a very clear case as to why executives themselves need to go through this training themselves (and not outsource to a CISO, CTO or assistant), experiencing it myself proved to me that my time as a Board Director was indeed well-spent (and I know my CTO was grateful I spent it!). The instructors provided all the knowledge and tools necessary in the Blueprint to empower us as individuals on how to do it ourselves, and I really think I can handle it on my own now.
“Overall, when I purchased the Blueprint training, I didn’t really know what I bought... and found out that what I bought was superb!
“After the Blueprint training, I have implemented a series of measures that I learned thanks to Andrzej and the Executive Cybersecurity Blueprint™ team at Cyber Nation Central®, which make me feel safer in my online activity.
“I most definitely recommend the Executive Cybersecurity Blueprint™ to anyone who wants to strengthen their own cybersecurity and that of their family members, Board Directors, Executives, or other key stakeholders. This training really empowers executives to transform themselves and their teams into cybersecure-culture standard bearers for their families and organizations at a time when cybercrime is getting the best of all of us!”
