ABOUT: Innovative & expeditionary by nature.

Humanity has evolved from cave-dwelling, wild hunting and fighting savage neighbouring tribes.

Today, we live in a world with infinite opportunities to thrive; the world is at our fingertips.  However, throughout evolution one thing remains a constant; threat and attack.

And it’s no longer local, it’s global.  Protecting territory and freedom has never been more important.

Only the strongest and smartest tribes survive and thrive.


CYSIAM was founded by three individuals, combining over 70 years’ experience operating in critical defence and national security environments, both in the UK and overseas.
