About this event

The CyberShift Alliance is a collaboration between several associations and organizations including ISACA SheLeadsTech, FITT, CISO Lens, AWSN, the Australian Signals Directorate, AustCyber, ISC2 and AISA, DOTM, EY and Forrester Research who aim to address culture change within security.

The alliance was born from an International Women’s Day event run by AWSN and ISACA aptly titled “Don’t Reward The Brilliant Jerk” and the AustCyber ''Culture Shock'' Event. 'These events attracted significant interest from attendees, and a call to action that we want to do better as an industry to address hidden systematic, and endemic issues that have plagued our industry.

To address this culture change, the CyberShift Alliance held a discussion on 21 July 2021 on what toxic culture looks like in practice and how individuals, leaders and organizations can address it.

This workshop is a follow-up discussion from this first session.

The Agenda for the workshop and the details on how to join will be sent closer to the date.
