In this transformative two-part cybersecurity workshop, attendees confront common challenges head-on.

Session 1 - Breaking Down Barriers Within and Between Cybersecurity Teams

This session tackles the pervasive issue of isolation within and between cybersecurity teams, recognizing its impact on burnout, turnover, and insider threats. Drawing from the Integr8 program, participants learn to dismantle barriers to collaboration by fostering open communication channels, strengthening organizational diversity and inclusion, and promoting psychological safety.

Session 2 - Reducing Burnout by Increasing Collaboration in Cybersecurity

This session harnesses the power of collaboration to combat burnout. As

cybersecurity professionals grapple with complexity and information overload, these workshops equip them with the social-behavioural tools to enhance teamwork, boost efficiency, and elevate autonomy. Attendees will leave with a newfound ability to bridge gaps, reduce burnout, and fortify their own resilience.

About Integr8

Integr8 is the leading human-centred teamwork development program for cybersecurity teams and multi-team systems, synthesising 56,000 hours of US & European government-funded research into a gamified, experiential curriculum that develops the essential skills to drive lasting and dynamic teamwork. Composed of 8 modular workshops, in total, Integr8 combines immersive experiences with revelatory discussions that unlock the awesome power of psychological safety at the individual, team, and multi-team levels. Expert facilitators and participants co-create a level playing field where they can replace judgment with curiosity, share their ideas and perspectives openly, and develop a collective growth mindset within and between the teams. With access to tools and techniques from the Integr8 Workbench, participants are prepared to seamlessly transfer their knowledge from the programme to the workplace.

There are no prerequisites for these workshops. Clients are welcome to book private workshops, for one or both sessions with their teams.

Session 1:

  • Identify ways to strengthen your culture of diversity and inclusion.
  • Practice using tools to open up channels of communication (e.g., team charters, structured brainstorming).
  • Design a strategy for increasing psychological safety and hearing from employees.

Session 2:

  • Identify how collaboration increases individual and collective efficiency.
  • Practice using tools that motivate team members to collaborate (e.g., goal hierarchies, information scaffolding).
  • Experience how collaboration increases your own autonomy.

Session 1: Breaking Down Barriers Within and Between Cybersecurity Teams

There’s a serious problem in the cybersecurity industry. Leaders are wired to focus more on adversaries and the technology that defends against those adversaries while focusing less on the people who do the defending. In turn, some of those people on the good side, the ones currently working for your organisation, see leaders as the adversary. This is what leads to employee challenges such as burnout, turnover, and, of course, insider threats that are driven by retaliation, disdain, and a reciprocal uncaring attitude toward an organisation that doesn’t care about them.

Throughout this half-day workshop of facilitated exercises adapted from the Integr8 programme, participants will practice strategies for opening up channels of communication among employees and leaders in order to proactively mitigate these challenges.

Session 2: Reducing Burnout by Increasing Collaboration in Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity professionals are faced with increasingly complex problems and encounter information entering their ecosystems at lightning-fast speeds. Along with analysts' predisposition to working alone, the current state of incident response is a recipe for burnout.

When working alone leads to complete success, long live the victor; yet when working alone leads to anything other than complete success, individuals experience the precursors to burnout: shame, guilt, embarrassment, frustration, and anger. Throughout this half-day workshop of facilitated exercises adapted from the Integr8 programme, participants will strengthen their desire and ability to collaborate with others and reduce the likelihood of burnout.
