The CIONET Belgium community had on October 27th our Virtual Community event on "Digitise Your Workforce" with 84 participants.

Thanks again Peter Vanbellingen (Colruyt), Christel Plessers (Daimler), Stefan Van Gansbeke (C.M.) & Loes Beddegenoodts (Deloitte) for sharing your insights and Wouter Goris (Ready2Improve) to keep us into shape.

In the interactive panel discussion, Peter, Christel and Stefan discussed what training programs they are running, how their people are trained and kept up-to-date. 

At Daimler, they use a full digital training in combination with a forum, based on six modules (Open Source, DevOps, Cloud Security, ...). People who complete the training receive a certificate.


Next, at Colruyt, the training is based on:
- communities,
- working with (external) coaching on the job,
- in combination with hackatons:  trying to learn more about new technologies

Digital Awareness at CM:
- distribution of USB sticks (10 years ago) with own malware, to track who would use it
- sending of phishing mails (50% off at Colruyt for example)
- e-learning
- building of the "human firewall"

The following two poll were launched:
- How do you evaluate the current digital skills of your IT Team?
- How do you evaluate the current digital skills of the rest of the organisation?
