#crossthebridge Cycling 2021

Premiere event

Albert Einstein once said ‘life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving’. The same can be said about your security posture: you must keep moving!

But back to cycling. On September 3rd we hosted our first #crossthebridge cycling event. An event with customers and partners from companies like SAP, Accenture, Thales, KPN, McCoy, MyBrand and Fortinet. Under guidance of road captains Dave Andriese and Rob Harmeling (former world champion and winner of a stage in the Tour de France) we cycled through the hills and heather fields around the beautiful Posbank area in the Netherlands.

The ride was a great adventure for everyone. From beginners to semi professional cyclists. From easy pace to special challenges for the ones that liked to go all-in. Our support car took care of the group and offered drinks and snacks during the breaks.

Rob Harmeling is also frontman of “Maartens Foundation” which supports children, young people and adults with a disability in terms of posture and movement after the hospital period. For every participant of our event, SecurityBridge donated to the Maartens Foundation. 

So, we were also cycling for a good cause. During his introduction Rob Harmeling mentioned that “cycling is the new golf”. We have seen this truly happening and were complimented afterwards about hosting such a great networking event:

With the push for zero-trust, primarily due to the cloud trend, IT security teams must focus more on application security. This is usually done by focusing on the most critical applications first. And that's where SAP almost always comes to the top of the list.
