Welcome to the SecurityStudio Academy!  

We strive to ensure that the SecurityStudio Academy embodies our values and is a space where all members are respected and valued. The following house rules establish the ground rules for Academy use. They are part of our SecurityStudio Academy Terms of Use. Please make sure you’ve read the terms that apply to your use. 

SecurityStudio Academy House Rules 

 1. Be respectful. 

The Academy is a place where you can ask questions and seek out the knowledge of your peers. This is a shared space of connection and learning. So please be polite and considerate in your interactions with other members. All people are welcome to use the Academy. However, personal insults, threats of violence, and/or harassment have no place in the Academy and will result in revoked Academy membership.  

2. Be relevant.

There’s a lot of conversation happening in the Academy. Keep your comments constructive and relevant to the topic. If you have a new question, start a new thread rather than interrupting a conversation. Please make sure to review section 3(b) of our Academy Terms of Use for more information on acceptable use. 


We are committed to high standards of validity and factuality of information in our Academy. The moderators are empowered (at their discretion) to remove irrelevant or incorrect content (created either by humans or AI) and issue account suspensions if needed. 

We encourage responsible and thoughtful use of generative AI. Please disclose that your content was assisted by AI and check the accuracy of the information before posting in the Academy. 

3. Share the love.

As our fearless visionary, @efrancen mentioned, the #1 rule is “Don’t be an asshole!”. What brings us together is our focus on the mission to #fixbrokenindustry. That should be our focus in this group. We are here to support, encourage, help, enhance, and challenge one another. Aside from the most important rule, we also ask for conformity to these professional standards: 


  • Members shall act honestly and ethically while performing any volunteer duties. 
  • Members shall treat all SecurityStudio employees, and other Academy members with respect, courtesy, and dignity. 
  • Members shall not discriminate and should respect ethnic, national, religious, and cultural differences. 
  • Members shall not harass, bully, or mistreat staff or other Academy members. 
  • Members shall obey all applicable local, state, and federal laws, while acting on behalf of the Academy, including all laws and regulations that govern appropriate conduct in the workplace. 
  • Members shall deter wrongdoing and ensure accountability for adherence to the Code of Conduct. 
  • Members shall report violations or suspected violations of the Code of Conduct.  Violations should be reported to the Academy Director at training@stg-securitystudio-staging.kinsta.cloud. 
  • Members shall seek assistance if they have questions about any of these guidelines. If a staff or Academy member has any questions or concerns about the code of conduct or wishes to file a formal complaint, they may contact training@stg-securitystudio-staging.kinsta.cloud 

4. Be responsible.

You are solely responsible for your interactions with other Academy members. Please practice common sense and use good judgment when posting and/or interacting with others. Do not post anything that would violate any contractual agreements (copyright, trade secret or otherwise) or nondisclosure agreements to which you are a party. 

5. Protect everyone’s privacy.

Don’t share anything about yourself, your business, or another Academy member that you/they would not want to be made publicly available. Do not post personal information that you receive in private messages or other one-to-one communications on the Academy without the other party’s consent.  

6. Keep in mind, this is user-generated content.

The SecurityStudio Academy is full of user-generated content with plenty of good advice, instruction, and insight. SecurityStudio is not responsible for the content generated by other users. Please apply the same good judgment pertaining to 3rd party content on the Academy that you would apply to information anywhere on the Internet. 


By engaging on, and contributing to, the SecurityStudio Academy you agree to follow these rules as well as the full SecurityStudio Academy Terms of Use. 

7. The SecurityStudio Logo and Employees.

You will notice that some Academy members may have a SecurityStudio logo next to their names – this means they are SecurityStudio employees. Like you, they are members of the Academy around SecurityStudio products, and we encourage them to share their knowledge and opinions here.  

8. Flagging inappropriate content for review

If you recognize any violation of these guidelines or our Academy Terms of Use, or if you have any questions about our guidelines, terms, or policies, let us know via legal@stg-securitystudio-staging.kinsta.cloud. 

Both staff and Academy members are expected to comply with the code of conduct described in this document. Failure to comply may be grounds for removal from the SecurityStudio Academy.
