The pace at which digital business has progressed has meant that IT leaders must evolve their strategies quickly. This doesn’t mean only focusing on the ever changing technical capabilities of digital technologies, but rather how to conduct themselves in these leadership roles, both in their own teams and across the business. IT and Technology leaders must broaden their skillsets beyond technical expertise in order to become true leaders and pioneers of change. 

Join this session for thoughts and insights into:

  • How to build trust and transparency between IT and business partners
  • Building diverse teams and building a culture of ‘giving back’
  • How IT Leaders can leverage influence and leadership with key business units to strengthen their digital transformation vision

In today’s climate, having a holistic view on API security is key to protecting organisations from the ever-expanding API attack surface. Proactively securing your environment from API security vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and design flaws are among the biggest challenges that security leaders face. But how can CISOs identify and eliminate attack surfaces before an attack, and actively test APIs for vulnerabilities throughout the lifecycle, in addition to preventing real-time attacks? 

Join this session to discuss:

  • Remediating management and configuration issues before they become a problem
  • Security testing for DevOps that integrates into the tools your team is already using
  • How to build a framework and network architecture to support the rise in remote employees

Cybersecurity and Digital Risk Management – Communicating the Risk with the Business

Allan Cockriel headshot

Allan Cockriel

VP and CIO for Global Functions and Information Risk Management, Group CISO

Shell

For enterprise priorities, reducing risk maintains its spot as a top priority for IT and Security Leaders. This has never been more apparent in a year faced with uncertainty and global crisis. From the management board and audit and risk committee to external regulators, today’s technology leaders must navigate different tools and methodologies, yet remain confident they’re quantifying risk effectively. Join Allan Cockriel, CIO – Global Functions/IRM and CISO, Shell as he shared his insights and thoughts into communicating risk, as well as managing multiple risks on a global scale. 

Specifically, Allan will share:

  • The metrics CIOs and CISOs should be quantifying risk to the business
  • Stepping up to meet digital business needs in a time where uncertainty has never been more certain
  • Which methodologies and approaches can help transform the security relationship with the business

Enterprise Security and Digital Risk – Can You Prepare for Evolving Threat Landscapes?

Oliver Madden headshot

Oliver Madden

Chrome Browser Enterprise Lead

Google Chrome Enterprise

As digital business continues to accelerate and cloud work continues to grow, many enterprise assets live outside the old “walls'' of the organisation. The role of the browser is changing rapidly. It’s now a critical endpoint; a strategic productivity and security layer in the enterprise tech stack. CIOs and CISOs alike must now ensure they have enterprise-grade security, speed and stability to empower the workforce and mitigate the risk of harmful web-based threats. 

Join this session to hear more on:

  • Thinking differently about architecting your environment through business transformation
  • How changing employee behaviours and the rise in flexible working is driving the need for new technology
  • Reconceptualising traditional ideas of how to approach security within the enterprise

The focus of the CIO role is now on broader strategic projects and aligning an organisations IT infrastructure with its business goals. Liberated of some “lights on” concerns, today’s CIOs can directly influence product and service development by interacting with internal business partners and customers to better understand their needs. Some IT Leaders have the full backing of the board, and some are still leveraging newly found influence to find their seat at the table. But what are the key skill sets CIOs need to foster to ensure success and adapt at a time where business needs are quickly changing. 

Join this boardroom to discuss:

  • The need for CIOs to shift their mindset to focus on driving true business change and the vital role culture plays in this shift
  • The importance for CIOs to forge stronger relationships across the business
  • Practical steps CIOs can take to make digital journeys take hold, with a focus on harnessing data effectively, and gaining buy-in from other business leaders

Third parties expose businesses to strategic, operational, financial, and compliance risks. Moreover, leaders have less visibility into third parties than into their own businesses. For many organizations, the pandemic exposed the fragility of the organisation’s third-party network and impressed the need to flex quickly to new third and fourth parties in the extended enterprise to meet demand without increasing risk exposure. 

Join this interactive session to discuss:

  • Standardising third-party risk management assessments to be used by business units
  • Maintaining visibility of all ongoing third-party relationships
  • Identifying and mitigating the risks of the third-party network

Security Through a Data Breach Lens - Utilising the DBIR

Phillip Larbey headshot

Phillip Larbey

Managing Principal

Verizon

In the last few years, we have seen an abundance of nefarious events by offenders, both known and unknown, covering over tens of thousands of incidents and breaches. That same catalogue of activities also offers security leaders a first-hand view into current cybercrime trends, and a map towards developing a prosperous and mature security program. So how can IT leaders learn from past breaches to ensure a more secure future for their organisations?

Join this session to hear more on:

  • Key findings of DBIR 2022 embellished with Verizon's own Incident Response experience
  • Using data breach investigations to evolve your security strategy
  • How to respond to security incidents and protect your organisation

Security teams are overloaded with alerts and manual tasks that slow down the speed at which they can respond to threats. Detections can take weeks to deploy and tune, and even when they do work, the alerts can still be noisy and tedious to respond to. CISOs are struggling to hire and retain analysts and engineers and want them to work on the most impactful, risk reduction efforts within their own organisation. How are CISOs prioritising high-risk activity and using automation to protect their organisations in real-time without interrupting workforce productivity? 

Join this boardroom to discuss:

  • The current state of Security Operations and continuous adaptation of security policies and access
  • Operational benefits and value driven by adaptive security capabilities with a risk focus
  • How security automation has assisted you in developing your risk mitigation strategy

The Economic Outlook for CIOs and CISOs – How to Prepare in Times of Crisis

Carsten Brzeski headshot

Carsten Brzeski

Global Head of Macro Research & Chief Economist Eurozone

ING

Recent events in Europe have shaken the expected recovery in the Eurozone and created prolonged periods of uncertainty and times of crisis for organisations and leaders. As turmoil persists, scenario planning can help CIOs and CISOs anticipate disruption in all possible contexts to prepare organisations for likely shifts in consumer trends and operations. Armed with the right information, technology leaders are ideally positioned to inspire customers, employees and fellow executives to pivot their organisations toward new ways of working and revenue streams. 

Join Carsten Brzeski, Global Head of Macro Research and Chief Economist Eurozone at ING as he shares his insights, research and views on:

  • The short-term economic outlook in the Eurozone and globally
  • The longer-term economic implications of current events in Europe on organisations
  • The projected impact on enterprise organisations and their IT and Security functions

Zero Trust as a Competitive Advantage

Tony Fergusson headshot

Tony Fergusson

CISO EMEA

Zscaler

How can IT and Security Leaders adapt and enable business agility without compromising security? In the wake of widespread cloud adoption and ubiquitous remote workers, traditional network and security systems have failed to keep pace. Zero Trust can act as a guiding principle for architecting a secure network. But beyond defence, it’s also a great offense: a cloud native zero trust approach, with AI- and ML-driven security, reduces risk that holds back innovation. Join this session to hear how adopting a Zero Trust model can be seen as enabler to reduce cost and complexity, driving agility and, ultimately, gain a competitive edge. 

Specifically, you will learn how others are taking a Zero Trust approach to:

  • Adopting a Zero Trust architecture to reduce costs and complexities across the business
  • Hear examples about AI/ML-driven security to reduce risk and drive innovation
  • Keep things simple and secure to drive competitive advantage in your industry
