The Definition of Insanity

Is doing the same thing again, expecting different results. We know what we want, but we rarely get the results we hoped for with traditional training.

“I want a good return on my training investment and my goals to be met. I need everyone to understand the importance of security and their role protecting our infrastructure.”


“Another compliance violation. Why don’t people care?”
“I want to distill the technical CIP information to understandable terms and get it to the right people without boring them.”


“I heard audible groans in the room when people learned it was time for compliance training.”
“Talk to me in my language, not compliance-speak. And don't bore me to death along the way. I need to get back to work.”


“For the love of humanity, please not another slide deck.”

Imagine this

Imagine if each of your employees saw themselves as Defenders on a quest to protect their infrastructure.

CIP Defender makes this reality through MetaMythic’s Applied Fiction process. Employees will learn their roles and duties along with the reason why each duty is important – in their language.

Then to dial the experience to 11, we’ll involve your people in a story arc of epic proportions…

Compliance was created to protect Earth from evil interstellar robots, bent on destroying Earth’s critical electric infrastructure before their forces reach Earth.

By learning and performing their compliance duties, your employees are Earth’s salvation...

Hello! My name is CTANLEE! (pronounced STAN-LEE)

I’m an ancient War Mind who defeated the robots millennia ago and I stand ready to prepare your people. Let me introduce our enemies.

Tailgating a problem at your organization?

These robots disguise themselves as normal employees and gain access to your facilities.

A devious unit that crawls near your facility entrance and siren-calls your employees to pick it up and plug it into a nearby computer. Network takeover commences.

There’s no code more malicious than these evil minions of the Robot Horde. They are always ready to infect your systems.

A versatile unit configurable in both Physical Attack and Hacking modes. Only the strongest physical and electronic security perimeters stand a chance.

Just because someone has a uniform (and a briefcase) doesn't mean they should have access to your facilities. Watch out for this model!

And different characters will teach them the duties of CIP Defense.

Computer-Based Learning

Through computer-based training, employees level up learning how security works by building the defenses of a fictitious facility.


For a given topic like port security, the simulator shows an electronic attack by robots on the facility. This clearly teaches why a defense is needed.


After the attack, the Defender chooses a CIP defense to add to their facility. The simulator shows the robots thwarted in their next attack.

Reality Check

After the simulator, employees are given opportunity to explore real attacks and learn about real equipment used on the field.


Once the reason for the defense is given, employees are taught duties specific to their role. For employees who maintain the defenses, these duties will be large. For employees who use or work in proximity to the defenses, duties are lighter, but still show how they contribute.

Oh, hello again!

The CIP Defender engages your people in a fully immersive story that doesn't end with training. These components ensure your employees continue to learn.

Defender's Guide

The CIP v5 Standards, made more understandable to the everyday employee and made more enjoyable through Applied Fiction. This handy manual is a constant reminder of duties, responsibilities, and the impending robot invasion from outer space we’re preparing for.


No Defender utility would be complete without signage on the walls and stickers on equipment. This informative and eye-catching propaganda educates as it entertains. The story continues for your Defenders year-round through short videos and other released content that reinforces security principles.
