In the current turbulent data driven world, risk is inevitable and “strong” response to it becomes critical.

Companies face a number of threats in today’s global business climate regardless of size.
Often leaders don’t admit that a disaster can strike their organisation, at least not on their watch. So they don’t prepare for it, and fail to encourage a company culture of resilience… whilst supporting a training mentality and increasing team’s capabilities might be the only way to keep the organisation strong and competitive over the longer period!

Using an analogy of Powerlifting training and "training" within the Information security domain encourages attendees to reflect on their daily “training” practice and habits as well as provoke the idea how they as an individual could support their organization’s resilience and help to mitigate information risks.

Important questions of self-studies, overcoming comfort zones, added value of networking and mentoring are being asked as well as sport stories of well-known world athletes are putting the importance of training into perspective.

“Become the strength” that changes the status quo of the organisations and achieve your best “IS” fitness level using methods of strength training!!

Sharing knowledge amongst the community is key for the digital world’s secure future and therefore attendees are encouraged to be interactive during the presentation.
