"CCS were engaged as part of our overall security awareness strategy and organisational cultural change program. Their collaboration in the development of the awareness materials clearly showed their intent to customise the training to ensure the best outcome for our organisation. The feedback from the staff who attended the training was resoundingly positive and this reflected not only the deep level of expertise CCS has in this area, but also the quality in the delivery of the training. I would not hesitate to engage them again."
Lachlan McGill from Healthscope
"If you want to learn to communicate clearly with your executive and board, be respected as a security leader and learn how you can add value to your organisation as I did then this was a really great workshop! Many times I attend trainings and leave with great product information but no concrete practical ideas. I love that I am going back with ideas I will implement right away."
Matthew Mulligan from Adventist
"I had attended a seminar where Brian had spoken before and thought the staff and company would benefit from the training and his down to earth explanation of computer terms and cyber threats. We had a broad range of staff attend, from those just starting in the work force to those nearing retirement and they all found the content insightful and the presentation engaging. I had 2 staff personally thank me for arranging the training. I would recommend this training to any organisation regardless of their size."
Matthew Costello from Apprenticeship's Queensland
"Brian has the ability to connect with people of all backgrounds and translate the complicated world of cyber risk into "plain speak". This ability has made him very effective in significantly improving awareness and culture in our organisation."
Mark Nix from Eagers Automotive
"I have been fortunate to see Brian present at several events over the past few years. Brian is passionate about cyber security which clearly resonates with his audience. He has a relaxed delivery and presents highly interesting content, that connects with, and captures the attention of those in attendance. We have had Brian present to management and staff within our organisation on a couple of occasions.
Without a doubt these sessions have been very well received and resulted in tremendous feedback"
Jamie Delacey from Attune Hearing
"Brian's presentation was insightful, engaging and most importantly made a lasting difference for our audience at the recent Cyber Security Asia event in Cambodia. He has the ability to explain complex emerging cyber threats in straight forward and practical terms that can be strategically applied by both executives and general staff. It is rare that a speaker makes such a lasting impression but Brian has done just that!"

Wayne from House Call Doctor
"James is engaging, pealing back the layers of emotion, and how and why decisions are made."
Mark Roberts, Sales Manager
"Working with James Carlopio recently was amazing and I can highly recommend his coaching skills. His ability to encourage and guide you, whilst allowing you to find the solution(s) to the issues yourself, is enlightening and empowering.
As a Psychologist myself, it is often difficult to self-analyse and having James’ skillset of being perceptive and sharp yet approachable was invaluable in assisting me to gain focus on where I wanted my career to transition to. James’ extensive experience is clearly evident through his everyday demeanour, execution and delivery.
I would highly recommend James’ coaching or counselling skills. If you require guidance or assistance, either personally or for business, I would encourage you to contact James directly."
"To whom it may concern,
Please be advised that Brian Hay has spoken at a number of functions for clients of Hall Chadwick in Queensland and at the Hall Chadwick national conference on his area of expertise.
He has a thorough knowledge of cyber security and related matters. We found his presentations relevant and of great assistance to our clients and staff. He was able to make them practical given his wealth of experience. We recommend Brian highly as a speaker to any business or groups who require assistance in his area of expertise.
I would be happy to take any contact from any person who was considering engaging with Brian Hay or his company, Cultural Cyber Security Pty Ltd."
Brendan Vaughan, Hall Chadwick
"We have worked with Brian since 2018 in a program designed to increase our Cyber Security awareness and improve our culture. To achieve this Brian has made around 20 presentations to diverse groups across our organisation ranging from frontline staff to C Level Execs. These have been general updates on emerging cyber threats and also targeted to specific groups, such as Payroll and People and Culture, which focussed on specific threats that they may face in their day to day work. Feedback to these sessions has been excellent and Brian presented them with the right balance of humour and education drawing on his vast experience as a Cyber Security Expert. Personally I have also shared platforms with him at AUSCert in a wide ranging discussion on cyber security issues which were also extremely well received."
Laurie Joyce, Australian Red Cross Lifeblood
"Thank you again for putting this presentation on for us.
The staff have been incredibly impressed and grateful as a result of being exposed to this very important topic. They are still “buzzing” today in awe of the content and presenter!
There were 111 people who were able to experience this presentation and I have received 70 feedback forms so far. This is brilliant as a lot of the staff don’t access their emails on a daily basis.
A lot of staff have asked if it was recorded as they would love to view it again!"
Online Cyber Safety Prensentation Feedback
"We have been working with Brian Hay and Cultural Cyber Security to develop and deliver our cyber safety program for almost twelve months. This commenced with a series of interviews across the organisation to establish a baseline of cyber safety knowledge across a sample of our employees which has then been used to develop a targeted program. The program has included face to face meetings with various business units at which Brian presented on the reasons why Cyber Safety are important and what our staff can do to keep themselves safe at home and at work. We are about to move into the next phase with some more targeted training rolled out. The feedback from those who have attended the sessions has been fantastic and I have no hesitation in recommending Brian Hay and Cultural Cyber Security as willing and extremely competent partners in delivering these types of cyber safety campaigns."
Laurie Joyce from Australian Red Cross Lifeblood
"As a fellow event producer with over 18 years experience throughout Europe, America and Australasia, I fully endorse Brian Hay as an excellent keynote speaker.
We work with A/NZ CFOs ranging from ASX200 through to all levels of government and the largest not for profits in the region who are notoriously a very ‘tough crowd’, Brian has consistently been our stand out presenter on every occasion.
I can not endorse Brian highly enough as he not only bespoke his presentation to our audience and has delivered over 10 outstanding keynotes, but is also genuinely a joy to work and will alway deliver 110% - One of our most recent and important events consisted of over 350 CFOs and Brian was voted the absolute stand out presenter and we look forward to welcoming him back this year."
Richard Mcbride from CFO Series
"I first met James Carlopio approximately 3-4 months ago, and was immediately impressed by his insight and rational approach on many subjects.
As an operator of what is presently a small business, I have found that not having a partner to ‘bounce ideas off” can sometimes bring about hesitation & procrastination. Consequently, when the opportunity presented itself, without hesitation, I engaged James as my business coach and mentor. In those few short weeks I have noticed an improvement in my approach to a number of matters. Additionally, I find myself looking forward to each session we have together, knowing that my ‘course’ forward is enriched by my new found guide."
Steve Kondra, Sustainable Business Mentor & Blogger
"My experience with James was nothing short of transformational!"
Ash Roy, Business Analyst
"James is a knowledgeable and experienced trainer. He used his past experience to demonstrate the concepts. I will suggest my husband and friends attend because this brings positive impacts to our lives!"
Au-Young Kim Man, Manager, Application Integration Team
"James is very professional and is a fantastic help with working with me as my business coach. I would recommend James to anyone who would like the direction to be exceptional at what you do. Thank you so much for your time and effort much appreciated."
Melissa Taylor, Business Development Manager
"Brian Hay has been instrumental in the webinars we have been delivering in our region. His network and knowledge is beyond compare and is always willing to help where and when he can. When it comes to cyber security, he’s your man. Whether the conversation is network, SOC, malware, ransomware, endpoint or operational technology based – he’s very well versed in the greater subject. Due to his extensive network, we have grown our visibility, our database and our business in the region. We are grateful for everything he does, how he conducts himself and the results he gives."
Marie Evans from Nozomi Networks
"I have had the pleasure of seeing Brian speak on topics of cybersecurity many times over the last several years. He is engaging in a way that makes you want to sit up and listen and take note. He is clearly passionate about the topic and combined with his extensive knowledge and experience in the industry, it makes him a standout speaker on the circuit. I have hired the services of Brian to speak at organisations I work for many times in the past and he has always made a wonderful and lasting impression on staff at all levels."
