This workshop’s designed to demystify cyber risk and build your ability to manage this risk in collaboration with your IT and information management specialists.

This interactive session will provide risk practitioners with an overview of government expectations, the Essential 8 mitigation strategies and how to use the popular bow tie tool to visualise these risks. The workshop will also cover the Victorian Government Cyber Maturity Benchmark and using the Benchmark in your organisation.

This offering was formerly titled Cyber Resilience Foundations. If you’ve previously attended this workshop, there may be an overlap in content.


We aim to deliver interactive workshops utilising different activities and engaging tools to support the content. Two tools we use are Miro and Menti. Please find some guidance below if you have not used these tools before.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the workshop, you should be able to:

  • Increase your awareness of government expectations around cyber risk
  • Assess your organisation’s baseline IT security maturity using the Essential 8
  • Use a bow tie diagram to visualise and identify cyber risks


This session’s beneficial to people with a risk and governance background, with limited exposure to IT. We also encourage IT specialists to attend to look at cyber from a business perspective.
