Who Lockdown is for

Lockdown is intended to be a short course. The short time commitment is its hallmark feature.

Lockdown is designed for the busy beginner who know that their online security is important, but doesn't have the time to learn it themselves.

It's also great for reluctant tech users for whom technology is alienating, frustrating, but also necessary.

Lockdown is a perfect gift for parents. It's the equivalent of sitting down with your parents over Christmas vacation and helping them, step by step, with securing their email addresses and retirement accounts.


As technical people, we tend to explain how and why to be secure from our standpoint so our advice falls on deaf ears. Neil expertly and passionately breaks down personal security into small, actionable episodes that my parents could even understand. This course is exactly something I'd get for any of the non-technical people in my life to get them introduced to personal security.

– Sean S.

I was originally skeptical about taking Neil’s course because I thought I was already familiar with security best practices. However, the course revealed significant knowledge gaps, and more importantly, provided me with a clear roadmap to securing my online presence. Neil is an engaging teacher who balances concision with comprehensiveness and I highly recommend his course.

– Chandler O.

In my experience, most other security trainings and courses are overly concept-based and academic in nature. Digital Fortress explained the concepts but also took things further and walked me through how to actually secure my accounts, step by step. If you’re looking for a simple, clear walkthrough for maintaining online security, you’ve found the right place.

Why is Lockdown only 90 minutes long?

Lockdown is designed for those of us who are busy, are elderly, or are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with technology.
