CyberOff

/ˈsʌɪbə ɒf/

Phrasal Verb

Used to tell a person to ‘go away’ if they are spouting utter nonsense about cyber security and online safety.

Why CyberOff?

Fed up of the boring, mundane, same old same old content that inhabits the cyber security industry? Yes so are we. We therefore decided to inject a little humour, the odd sideways glance and a sprinkling on top of “oh no, they didn’t just say that did they?”.

We’re not on a mission but our goal is simple, keep people safe online. We do this with our cornerstone video content that amuses, informs and makes the messaging memorable. This content along with our posters and short stories builds into an ongoing campaign to keep people engaged and entertained whilst imparting key tips on how to stay safer online. We also design bespoke campaigns to your specific requirements too. We’re sure you’ll find something here to brighten up your day, keep your teams engaged and ultimately provide a savvier cyber workforce. 

 

A bit about our founder, Ian

Ian Murphy’s career in security started back in the early 90’s with his introduction to security via the UK Ministry of Defence. Since then he has gained a wealth of experience across all aspects of the profession from sales, to technical to leadership and across multiple geographies too. His specialisms lie in providing organisations with truly engaging, fun and memorable cyber security campaigns and the engagement necessary to begin to change users behaviour for the better. Ian’s belief is that an engaged and entertained workforce is better equipped to keep their company safer online. Ian’s experience has shown that humour combined with continuous reminders in the shape of videos, posters and stories that are easily transferable to the users home lives will drive an increase in user “smarts” way beyond the workplace. And this is where Ian believes that most businesses have the equation for their “first line of defence” so wrong. He contends if we flip this on its head and happily educate users into better behaviours without the need to tick compliances boxes then the defensive line that is so often referred to will take care of itself.
