Announcing: The Security Dojo

Hello friends from your Master Guardian Makani!

It's time for some exceedingly exciting news!

The Founding Member Launch of our Security Dojo membership.

It's a vision 7 years in the making.

All the details are below.

If I miss something, hit me up in the forum or drop me a note.

What is the Security Dojo?

It is a membership where you level up your digital defenses!

You build the skills and acquire the tools you need to stay safe online.

It's sort of like a gym membership.

Except you also get a personal trainer, spotter, and exercise partner.

I will be your Master Guardian, just like I have been to so many friends and family over the years.

You also get the support of the whole IHP Team, and an awesome community of members like you.

We will share knowledge and cheer each other on!

What do I do inside the Dojo?

Just like a personal trainer, or financial advisor – the first step is understanding your unique situation.

That way we can personalize the strategies we use to focus on your areas of concern.

This might include scams, passwords, shopping, privacy, spam, phishing, email, browsers, identity theft, pornography, malware... it's a long list!

In short – we will cover anything that threatens your digital sanity, security or privacy.

It's also vital to expand your vision and shed light on the threats you don't know are coming.

You work at your own pace, and on a schedule that works for you.

There will be a lot of discussions about what you need, what's working, and what's not.

But what exactly does it look like?

It's not yet built, so it will take the shape of whatever will serve you best.

Along with the rest of the Founding Members.

There will be a lot of flexibility to match different personalities and learning styles.

There will be teaching, and answering questions, and support when you get stuck.

We'll build podcast episodes based on member needs.

We'll provide accountability, Q&A, or teaching calls and videos as needed.

Again, sort of like a gym with a huge variety of machines and classes.

I know what good personal security looks like.

I know the skills and tools you need to stay safe and private online.

Here's my simple promise to you:

If you are ready to take action, you will make progress.

Who are you?

I am a computer geek by profession and hobby.

I have been a professional software developer for over 30 years.

I play video games to stay connected with distant friends and family.

I am obsessed with personal security and privacy.

I am the guy everyone calls when they have computer troubles.

My passion in life is keeping people safe and happy.

But can I trust you?

I hope you are asking yourself this question.

We don't ask it often enough online these days.

Some of you know me, but many of you don't.

Is it a scam? Are you real? Is this just an AI?

It's hard to trust someone you don't know.

Now more than ever.

This is one of the reasons we've been doing a weekly podcast since February.

You can learn a lot about me by listening.

But I know as we just get started, you might need something more.

So I'm opening up my calendar to talk to anyone who is interested.

You can schedule a time to talk to me here.

I'm happy to talk to a bunch of folks at once, or one-on-one.

If you need a different time or scheduling arrangement, contact me here and we will make it happen!

Thank you!

When and how much?

The Founding Member Launch opens to the public on May 27th at 3pm Mountain.

It closes June 1st.

The cost is $120 yearly.

The plan is to have the dojo ready for the rest of the world by the end of the year.

At which point we expect to double the price (but yours will stay the same).
