Real-life inspiration

“The award was for our “StandUps 4 Security” series where we produced security awareness modules in collaboration with South African comedians, inspired by a real-life event when a comedy club was hacked,” says Anna Collard, CEO, Popcorn Training.

“We worked with exceptional comedic local talent to tell locally relevant security stories and the fact that these have become internationally recognised and acknowledged is a huge achievement for us.”
