We began our journey with Privacy Clinic: a series of workshops on data protection for institutions like Leiden University and Amnesty International. During these workshops, we found out that cybersecurity is a lot like privacy: despite its scary reputation, it’s quite easy to protect yourself.
Therefore, we launched Cyberlight to prove that security can be accessible, affordable, and achievable for small businesses.
MEET THE FOUNDERS
ALEX BARKER I became fascinated with cybersecurity whilst researching encryption. Securing my personal life, I realised that I could help companies make the same transition. Now, I help small and medium businesses protect their data, choose secure tools, and stay alert.
PHILIPP BLAAS My expertise is social engineering. I love to analyse how hackers bypass security and steal valuable information. Noticing how these scammers disproportionately target small and medium businesses, I now help these companies detect malicious emails, hacking attacks, and software vulnerabilities.
