Advanced Engagement and Sodak join forces to dramatically improve the security of your organisation.

By combining behavioural science and cycbersecurity expertise, we accurately identify the hidden behaviours that are leaving your organisation insecure and open to attack.

Once identified, we create an environment together, promoting higher standards of secure behaviour from employees, contractors and visitors.


Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th May 2019

In the fight against cybercrime, both sides are continually upping their game. As a security leader within your organisation, it’s your responsibility to ensure that you and your team have the knowledge, the tools and the skills to fight cybercrime and be ahead of the curve.  

Applying behavioural science to your security will significantly reduce risk.

Over two days, you will learn how Behavioural Science can provide an intelligent and considered method for dealing with human behaviours that can lead to cyber attacks and data breaches. This workshop will give you the tools and the know-how to help you, team leaders and your colleagues apply Behavioural Science to your workplace, utilising this important new tool in our security arsenal.

Keeping up to date with the latest in behavioural research will ensure that your company is equipped with the knowledge to understand the human element of security threats.

We will explore the impact of:

•  Cognitive Biases
•  Cognitive Dissonance
•  Fundamental Attribution Error
•  Triggers and Reinforcers
•  The Power of the Environment
•  Toxic Cultures
•  Celebrating Failure

This workshop will be held at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation. 


Friday 24th May 2019

Utilising the Behavioural Science you’ve learned in the two-day workshop, we want to work closely with you to design a cybersecurity and risk mitigation plan suitable for your business’ specific issues.

If you intend to attend this day, you will need to bring with you examples of any big issue facing your organisation, and as much data and information as possible.

This is a hands-on day; space is limited to 8 people.


This workshop is for security professionals and IT leaders who believe there is a different way to think about, plan for, and mitigate the effect that human behaviour has on the security of their organisation.

If you want your organisation to remain a step ahead of the next security threat and if you see the increasingly effective and ever-changing threat landscape as an opportunity to learn and grow, then this workshop is for you.
