Time to breakout the legwarmers and get ready to escape an ‘80s workout video!
Simon Richards was the most prominent star of the 80’s. He quickly rose to fame with his at-home workout videos until he mysteriously vanished on New Years Eve in 1989. That day, he was recording his newest film titled “REC” before witnesses claim to have seen him vanish in thin air. 30 years later, and Simon’s disappearance remains a mystery— until today. Equipped with the only copy of “REC” in existence, your team must immerse themselves in the world of an 80’s workout video to uncover the hidden secrets of the film and uncover the truth behind Simon’s disappearance. Does your team have what it takes, or will you be stuck in the 80’s forever?

Cybersecurity attacks continue to increase and the impacts are getting more devastating. Employees are the soft underbelly of any organization’s cybersecurity posture and are often the weakest link.

Tom leads a variety of engagements designed to help improve organizations’ cybersecurity posture, including cybersecurity risk assessment, control program development and implementation, incident response planning and simulation, vulnerability and penetration testing, security audit, control verification, and managed detection and response.

76% of employees feel burned out, drained, or exhausted at work. Nearly half of employee’s report feeling down, depressed or hopeless. This is increasing according to SHRM research, and yet more than one in three employees reported having done nothing to cope with these feelings.
