Author Statement
Two statements from security professionals who attended early versions of this course are far more eloquent than I could be in describing why this short course could be a great investment:

"I have seen my people make nearly every one of the mistakes you illustrated, but I either didn't know they were mistakes or didn't know how to coach them to fix it. Now I do. Every one of my security people as well as my marketing folks are going to be taking this course and we will all use the score sheets to build a culture of great presentations." (G. MacArthur, VP, Dell)

"Thank you! Thank you! I just got back to my office from a briefing I had to give to my boss's boss (a 2 star) about a security incident that we experienced. He told my boss it was the best security briefing he had ever seen. I think it was mostly the timeline chart you showed us how to use for incident reporting. Whatever it was, thank you!"
