The Business Response to Cyber Learning: Insights from BSI’s Future Learning Podcast

Welcome back to the BSI Future Learning Podcast! In our latest video instalment, we delve into the way business prepares itself and manages cybersecurity risk, exploring why it's no longer sufficient to rely solely on complex passwords or two-factor authentication (2FA) to protect sensitive data and systems. Join us as Simon, Damien, and Kala, shed light on the evolving nature of cyber threats and the imperative for a multifaceted approach to cybersecurity - including more sophisticated approaches to cyber learning.

Adapting to Cyber Challenges

Simon kicks off the discussion by highlighting how cyber is an "adaptive challenge" for leaders, teams, and individuals within organisations. He emphasises the need to move beyond traditional security measures and learning programs, and to adopt strategies that encompass governance, education, and ongoing learning.
"It's no longer just good enough to have your secure password or 2FA and hope for the best," Simon asserts. "We've got to do a little bit more than that. The strategies we're seeing now are a lot more multifaceted."

Beyond Traditional Measures

Indeed, in today's rapidly evolving cyber landscape, staying ahead of threats requires a holistic approach that integrates governance frameworks, ongoing education, and regular engagement with teams. As Kala explains, effective cybersecurity training goes beyond mere compliance with regulations; it involves consulting with and understanding the specific challenges faced by individuals in their daily roles and campaigns that help them keep cybersecurity top-of-mind.

"The learning challenge of cybersecurity an adaptive challenge," Simon elaborates. "It's constantly evolving, constantly changing. We need to embed with people and teams the key principles of cyber safety so that when new threats emerge, individuals are equipped to respond effectively."

National Cybersecurity Qualifications

One notable development in this regard is the introduction of national cybersecurity qualifications, such as those being pioneered in Australia. These qualifications, informed by industry insights and emerging trends, provide professionals with the skills needed to navigate the complexities of modern cyber threats.

"The national cybersecurity qualification sets a standard that professionals can follow," Kala explains. "It bridges the skills gap by offering entry-level pathways for individuals to enter the field and progress in their careers."

Continuous Learning and Adaptation

Moreover, these qualifications are continuously updated to reflect the latest threats and policy changes, ensuring that professionals remain at the forefront of cyber readiness. With a clear pathway for skill development and career progression, organisations can be confident in the capabilities of their cybersecurity workforce.


In our next segment, we'll explore the practical steps organisations can take to implement effective learning and training programs to adapt to the ever-changing cyber threat landscape. Join us as we empower organisations to stay ahead.
