Overview

Testbed provides seminars and workshops focused on a variety of cyber security, device security and encryption issues. Our training is highly customizable thanks to our modular program design, and can be built out in a way that focuses on professionals in a variety of occupations.

Beyond awareness, we deliver interactive workshops where attendees receive “hands-on-key-board” training, side-by-side technical assistance, and a practical context for applying the skills and tools presented. Attendees learn practical application of tools such as PGP encryption, TOR, and TAILS - the same tools used by Edward Snowden to communicate with Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras - from security experts who have real-world experience advising Fortune 500 companies, illustrious educational institutions, and even government agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security and NASA.
