Case Study: Cyber Citizen Initiative

Tight deadline, multilingual, ready-made theme and some custom coding. No problem.

We are honoured to be a small part of the Cyber Citizen Initiative by Aalto University. The initiative aims to develop a model for European citizens to learn cyber security and can be found at the address

The project needed a web presence quickly with multilingual capabilities and a few different post types. We decided that a ready-made theme would be the fastest and best option for the current phase of the project. We created a plugin with custom post types for managing different content.

We created a basic structure and page layout using the Divi builder and after approval, the customer could add content. After the Finnish version of the site was ready and approved, it was a quick job to copy the content to the English pages where the other content could be added.

There were also a few Divi bugs that had to be worked out, mainly divider lines showing where they shouldn’t.

Security and maintenance are managed by our WP-Ensure platform and we look forward to seeing how this project develops and also how to improve cyber security awareness for everyone.
