Based on the feedback from Cybera’s members, we are expanding the depth and breadth of our cybersecurity community discussions initiated under the AB SecureIT project. When SecureIT was launched in 2020, the goal was to bring together Alberta’s 26 post-secondary institutions to strategize ways to share information and combat cybersecurity threats. We are now looking to bring Alberta’s K-12 community to the table.
On December 7, we will host our fifth quarterly community conversation with cybersecurity leaders across Alberta education (K-12 and PSI).
This session, running from 1:30pm - 3:00pm MT, will feature a discussion on “Retention - Avoiding Analyst Burnout”. Representatives from Saint Mary’s University, the University of Alberta, and Cybera will discuss their experience with burnout. This includes recognizing the signs, dealing with burnout, and building resilient teams. They will then be available to answer your questions.
These quarterly conversations are aimed at the folks who act as the bridge between the technical practitioners and the executive-levels in their organizations. They are the ones who live in both worlds, pulling the strategic, the technical, and the tactical (or stratactical) together.
Please register here. A link to the meeting will be sent to registrants closer to the event date.
