The cyber threat is not just a technological problem. It is also a behavioral problem. The problem resides in how people interact with cybertechnology because the operator is ultimately the weakest link of the security chain. Meta believes that education and training are key components to help mitigate the cyber threat, and to properly and promptly collect open source and publicly available information. Meta’s instructors have many years of experience in OSINT and Competitive Intelligence; as well as ethical hacking.

"While at the FBI National Academy, I had the opportunity to learn Open Source Intelligence skills from Cecilia. Her specific class was one of the most interesting subjects taught in the intelligence curriculum. I was able to start using some of these skills immediately in my day to day work. She is a great instructor."
--Layne Barnum, Public Safety
"Cecilia is an absolute consummate professional both as an instructor in her on-line protection / risk management class, as well as her business as an intelligence analyst / private investigator at Meta Enterprises.
She knows the cyber Intel business well and communicates that in ways that her students can easily grasp. A pleasure to work with AND she gets results too!"
--Mike Davis, Director, IT Security (CISO) at American Bureau of Shipping
