What we do

Stickley on Security was founded in 2007 with a plan to provide organizations with meaningful education and awareness solutions that employees and customers would actually embrace. As our founder Jim Stickley points out, it is simple to offer a training course but far more difficult to actually educate the participants. Our goal is to ensure that your customers and employees not only learn about cybersecurity risks, but that they can apply what they learn into their everyday lives and jobs.
