A video about cybersecurity threats that doesn't feature any computers


Normally, when I watch a video about cybersecurity threats designed for the average guy in the street it’s a certainty that you’ll see the following things:

  • Hoodie-wearing hackers
  • Computers with lots of green characters on a dark background

So I’m pretty impressed with Hiscox which has managed to put together an engaging cybersecurity ad that doesn’t include a single hoodie or (even more remarkably) any furtive keyboard typing in a darkened room.

“Are you Brompton?”

“No, we’re 3rompton”

Very cute.
