Video interview with Mike Feerick, CEO of Alison on cyber learning
June 4, 2018
"Part of the problem of cyber security is not cyber security - it's about creating a culture of online learning and immediacy in learning." -Mike Feerick
In between sessions at the Forbes CIO Summit Europe event, I interviewed Mike Feerick (pictured with me above), CEO of Alison, one of the world’s largest free learning platforms for education and skills training. Their mission is to act as a catalyst for positive social change, creating opportunity, prosperity, and equality for everyone.
Mike says corporations are waiting for universities to update their courses and provide the talent, but this process is far too slow. "Organisations have an amateurish approach to learning," he states. What's needed is a more informal, nimble way.
This is only too true in cyber security. Cyber breaches are occurring at an insane rate and the threat landscape is constantly changing. So how do we keep up?
Watch the interview to hear Mike's views on learning and teaching cyber security and how he's shaking up the system.
