Security is difficult to imagine. Are failures of imagination making you underestimate your risk? We will teach you to understand security as it applies to you and your organization—no matter your level of technical expertise.
Explain to your managers, your employees, or your board why security matters, and what they should do about it.
Often, organizations miss security threats because people de-prioritizes security, frequently due to failures of imagination. We can help you bridge this gap.
Just beginning to assemble a cybersecurity strategy? We can help you understand what you need, so you can focus on your real work.
You already understand the importance of data protection—we teach you how to execute effective data protection in the face of changing tools.
Learn how we think about security and risk.
Nick has a way of getting everyone involved, of getting us to really think critically... He has a real ability to make us aware of the motivations of others and create a sense of how we're the best people to help protect ourselves. Fantastic.
Nick's rare combination of insight and deviousness makes him especially well-suited to security analysis. He prompts you to ask yourself questions to which you should know the answers, but probably won't have even considered. These issues are universal; Nick will help you identify and confront them with precision and clarity.
Nick Merrill (PhD, UC Berkeley) is the founder and managing consultant of Broad Daylight. He spent years developing techniques to help organizations practice cybersecurity effectively. A simple observation motivates him: society needs cybersecurity yesterday, but businesses don't have the tools they need to achieve it.
Outside of security consulting, Nick has authored dozens of academic articles. Nick is a lecturer at the UC Berkeley School of Information and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the UC Berkeley Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity.
