Storytelling in Cybersecurity: Your Ace in the Hole

We know that storytelling is one of the most effective strategies to engage people. We are accustomed to using storytelling, experiential learning, and competitions in training and education because they engage the emotion system of the brain (hippocampus) – and produce excitement, anxiety, confidence, joy – which transfers information into memory, and information into action. But, storytelling is more than a great training strategy. Steve Jobs said, "The most powerful person in the world is the storyteller. The storyteller sets the vision, values, and agenda of an entire generation that is to come." Storytelling is a critical business function not only for business development, but it also aids in recruiting, strategic communication, and team building. Everyone from CIOs and CISOs, all the way down the organization's hierarchy, can use storytelling to impact business and culture.

Join #FISSEA2020 and Sarah Moffat for a workshop on storytelling in business, specifically, cybersecurity. During this 70-minute session (plus time for the big FISSEA Innovator of the Year award!) you’ll get a chance to practice your storytelling skills while getting tips from Sarah Moffat, a graduate from the TED® Masterclass. Sarah’s TED Talk, “How to Develop a Round Table as Legendary as King Arthurs” was delivered on the TED® HQ stage in NYC and is now in the TED Masterclass app! Sarah’s going to share what she’s learned from working in cybersecurity education, training, and awareness for 15 years, plus her TED training, and help us all tap our creative side to communicate important cybersecurity concepts to a variety of audiences -- from teaching children in kindergarten to enlisting the support of the non-technical C-suite.

Presenter, Sarah C. Moffat, Talent Development Expert and Cybersecurity Storyteller

Meeting the Need: Training that Rocks

The world is changing before our eyes – no doubt about it. If we, as learning and development leaders, are to keep up with the required changes, trends, and learner needs, we’ve also got to make some big changes. We’ve invited four incredibly high-impact learning and development leaders to talk with us about how we can take our training development and delivery to the next level. In this session, experts from both cybersecurity and training development are going to discuss how you can change your cybersecurity awareness program to be next-level, high-impact, and more relevant.

“Preparing for Cyber Security Awareness Month” presented by the National Cyber Security Alliance

Cybersecurity Awareness Month, held every October, is a collaborative effort between government and industry and led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and to ensure that everyone has the information they need to be safer and more secure online.

NCSA will share a brief overview of all the new and exciting things in store for this year's Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2020, including a new logo and brand and a new overarching theme with messaging guidelines.  NCSA will also walk you through how you can utilize the wealth of resources available to help build your own cybersecurity awareness campaigns this October.

Adaptive Learning: Utilizing AI and Social Collaboration for User-CentricTraining Results

Have you enrolled in training where much of the material covered was far too simple for you? Or clicked through on-demand training modules as quickly as possible because the content was largely irrelevant to your job role, yet needed to be completed to show your competency on a topic? Many thought leaders in training and development believe that Adaptive Learning and AI will change the way that the next-gen workforce will learn and adopt new skills into practice. Adaptive learning is a method of on-demand instruction that orchestrates artificial intelligence and sophisticated algorithms to present the next appropriate action, based on what it knows about each unique learner. It evolves moment-by-moment using trial and error as the environment changes for the individual learner. Joi n in to hear a panel discussion that will provide insight into how and why adaptive learning and artificial intelligence will transform the way that the workforce will learn new skills in the future.

August webinar presentation and video coming soon.
