I’ve been to 2 of Trevor’s seminars/lectures recently and both were brilliant; engaging, informative and highly worthwhile, I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to learn more about Cybersecurity.

I had the pleasure of attending a workshop, Cybercrime- what can go wrong? as part of the #LBF (Leicester Business Festival) . I found the course to be relaxed yet informative, with Trevor’s warm and friendly style, I was able to participate without any inhibition. His knowledge has proved valuable, allowing a proactive and productive implementation of new processes in the work place.

Trevor hosts all my important information on a cloud storage system for me. If there’s a problem, which there was at my end a couple of months ago, the system flags this up and then I get a call from Trevor. He sorted it out very quickly which was a relief for me! His knowledge of cybersecurity is amazing too, if a little scary………..
Trevor is an expert when it comes to cybersecurity. Over the years, Trevor has given sound advice to help me protect my website from spam-bots and other security threats. If you’re looking to protect your IT systems and your website, I highly recommend speaking to Trevor.
Trevor is concise, professional and extremely knowledgeable in all of his subjects. He recently gave a very interesting and thought provoking talk to the Federation of Small Business Virtual Networking group that I host here in Leicester, on the subject of Cyber crime. It stimulated many questions and much discussion, all of which made for a very positive meeting.
