We're communicating more than we ever have. The world is getting smaller by the day.
All because of Technology.
Technology is changing the way we think, lead, and make decisions.
And it's no longer for techy people. Anyone with the right skills can take part.
So the mindset and culture we foster have around technology needs to change.
We need to increase our adaptability quotient (AQ) so we can adapt, grow, learn, and get better. Accepting that most of the decisions we make are reversible. If it doesn't work, then stop and try something different.
And we especially need to rethink security - just because we haven't had a breach, doesn't mean we won't.
Because our strongest asset, and weakest link are the same thing:
In this episode I talk with Hilary Walton about organisational culture in a digital age and why it's important that we change the way we talk about tech.
Hilary Walton is the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) of the Kordia Group, responsible for the overall security position of Kordia in both Australia and New Zealand.
She is an Information and Technology and digital business transformation leader, and has a diverse background in organisational psychology and risk management.
She also has significant experience from offshore roles, having worked for Mi5 in London, and the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games leading the Information Security programme.
Outside of work, Hilary is a ‘YouTuber’ and podcast producer. She is a passionate sharer of ‘Digital Culture ideas’ on social media, because she believes that being ‘digital’ requires a new set of behaviours and ways of working for people to learn and adopt.
While digital technologies provide possibilities for efficiency gains and customer experience, if the organisation lacks the right mindset for change or current practices are flawed then adding technology will simply magnify those flaws. These are some of the challenges you face in the transformation of your business.
Which is why we focus on equipping your business with the knowledge, training, and support required to ensure lasting digital transformation will become a reality.
