CySec Aware

Thank you for your interest in our courses and company! CySec Aware was formed to deliver high-quality but affordable cyber security training for leaders, practitioners and everyday staff drawing on the experiences of founders Jez Rogers and Andy Rawlinson.

Jez is a recent retiree Detective Constable from a Police Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU) where he specialised in providing protective cyber security advice, supporting organisations in their response to a cyber incident and managing the highest-risk UK cyber offenders after conviction. These hands-on experiences give a real-world perspective that many trainers simply don't have.

Andy leads a team responsible for responding to cyber security incidents as well as proactively identifying and notifying third-party organisations of vulnerabilities which stand to be exploited. Another part of his team delivers cyber security training to organisations across the spectrum including public sector, education, healthcare and sport. Andy is an experienced public speaker at specialist events for niche audiences.

All training is delivered in accordance with the guidance given by the UK's National Cyber Security Centre as the technical authority for HM Government. Where there are differences in a global syllabus this will be highlighted to the candidates.

About the Trainers

Jez Rogers

In 2020 Jez ended an award-winning 30 year career as a UK Police Officer serving as a cybercrime specialist in the South-East Regional Organised Unit (SEROCU). Jez managed the highest risk cyber offenders, delivered proactive cybersecurity vulnerability and compromise notifications on behalf of the intelligence services and provided outreach education and training to organisations across all scales and services.

The experiences gained enabled Jez to have a unique view of the cyber threat landscape and the techniques and tools available to empower non-technical individuals to increase their cyber awareness and resilience.

Jez received two Chief Constable’s commendations during his time with the SEROCU cybercrime unit – one from Thames Valley Police and one from the National Police Chief’s Council recognising the national impact of his work.

In the year prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, Jez delivered cyber awareness training in a variety of styles to 2456 people from all different types of organisations

Jez has delivered tabletop exercises to C-Suite and Senior Executive teams across a range of sectors from multinational businesses to healthcare. The Covid-19 pandemic drove a change in delivery style, with Jez adapting to online training through platforms including Zoom, Teams, Google Meet and WebEx.

These unusual experiences enabled Jez to sit with the Home Office and National Crime Agency (NCA) on more than one occasion to help shape policy, strategy and tactical options under the UK National Cyber Security Strategy with national impact.

In October 2019 Jez was invited to be a keynote speaker at an international cyber conference at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, where the National Crime Agency hosted a number of senior representatives of European Law Enforcement.

- Firebrand Training’s Open Source Intelligence Advanced Practitioner course
- APMG’s ethical hacking course ‘The Art of Hacking’
