About Mike

Making Cyber Security Fun! 

With over 25 years’ of experience in the IT sector, working in the UK, NZ, and Australia, Mike identified that most IT security issues were caused through a lack of knowledge and education.

This realisation led Mike to establish an IT/Cyber Security Awareness program which he delivers throughout Australia. His passion is to ensure that people are trained in how to identify IT security threats and respond appropriately to avoid damage to the business.

Because of Mike’s extensive knowledge, he ensures his workshops are engaging and educational so people can build confidence in working with technology every day.

Key Experience

IT and Change Management

Training in the IT industry goes hand in hand with change management, and Mike was initially involved with training across policy and procedure communication and instructing for the use of new systems and system changes.

Microsoft Training

In 2012, Mike extended his training skillset when he joined a dedicated Microsoft training company, and instructed students in the use of Multiple Microsoft applications, and for varying levels of expertise. It was here that he developed his relaxed, simple and engaging style.

Cyber Security

When Mike moved into the cyber security awareness industry in 2018, a core focus was to ensure what is typically a bland topic was transformed into a fun and engaging experience, where people were focused, having fun, and learning.
