Training

Our approach

Whether through their security or development backgrounds, and sometimes both, OSC’s team has substantive experience working in degraded security environments. The vast majority of our trainers have endured and have had to manage security incidents. This has infused our approach to security and is at the heart of all of our trainings.

We believe that:

► Each incident is unique. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to security, only good practice.
► Insecurities are best approached through preparedness.
► Preparing against threats works best when knowing yourself.
► Trainings should empower people.
