Cyber Security Team Building at Facebook
Cyber Security team building events – ones that appeal to the diverse intellects required to live on the bleeding edge of technology, be proactive, adaptively reactive, and always “on” and guarantee consistent safety all the time – can be daunting. Our most recent adventure with Facebook included an extremely competitive build competition with two teams finishing just about 1 minute a part. The team pictured above turned in a stellar performance building the robot in 37:04. They are a part of Facebook’s prophylaxis internet security – a funny term for a very serious task! This same team also won every battle competition we had, only losing 1 individual battle and winning over a dozen in a row!
This group like many at Facebook and in our experience with cyber security was made up of people from a variety of backgrounds and ages, races, and both genders were well represented. It was great to see them face off in battle with many of the battles lasting several minutes and displaying quite a bit of expert robot skill. It turns out that designing your own custom drones at home as a hobby – as one of these team members does – pays off in winning robot battles and coaching your team. Congratulations to this team for an outstanding performance!
A team event that appeals to “people” people, technical people, and people-technical people, all operating at a high level and plugged in to the now must make great use of their time – which is critically valuable, must engage their curiosity and be novel, must include healthy competition, and must help improve relationships and teamwork – something they can’t necessarily get other places as effectively or as easily. Robot team building fulfills this task by checking every box in the demanding list above.
The areas of cyber security are growing in complexity and breadth. Breaches can have gigantic consequences like influencing elections, endangering children, and revealing intimate and financial information about millions of users.
Cyber security has never been more prominent in our news cycles and public awareness. Recent high profile hacks have brought widespread awareness to the scale of on-going hacking that has been going on for years – invisible or undetected by major corporations and world governments. The trend is towards companies and individuals being held legally responsible for breaches – especially when negligence can be demonstrated It pays to have your best people, and a diverse set of eyes, focused on internet safety!Robot Team Building
