Today’s workforce must be productive, connected, and secure no matter where they sit or what device they use. With this increase in employee flexibility, comes increased enterprise security concerns as companies reach the limits of legacy castle-and-moat security architectures. Technology leadership means using IT to create a better user experience. CIOs and CISOs must work together to provide a secure user experience that protects company assets.

Join this session to learn more about:

  • Modernising your network to reduce the technical and financial costs of internet-bound traffic
  • Strengthening security posture by implementing frictionless processes, regardless of user location
  • Getting granular visibility into user access activity

 CIOs must foster a data-driven approach to uncover new digital business opportunities and, ultimately, accelerate digitisation. But key questions need to be addressed for CIOs leading this change to ensure they derive more business value from information assets. The CIOs mandate is no longer ‘why’ data-driven transformation is needed, but ‘how’. This session will allow you to discuss whether you’re on the right track with your data strategies, best practices from peers, and how to ensure your teams are able to deliver and scale an ambitious data strategy in ongoing uncertainty.

Join this session to specifically discuss:

  • Tools and techniques on how to deliver on your transformational data projects
  • How you as a CIO can ensure you are delivering data-driven transformation at pace, cost and scale in times of operational uncertainty
  • Empowering your teams with the skills needed to make IT-Business aligned decisions to move your strategy forward

10:00 - 11:00  CEST Executive Boardroom

As digital business maturity flourishes, IT teams are looking at how to support and empower the business through the best operating model. Drastic shifts in how IT approaches project management to support new digital business models are taking hold. IT leaders must create an operating model that supports both a product management approach and agile governance throughout the department to reinforce a more fluid and customer-centric business.

In this session, your peers will discuss:

  • Key components of an outcome-based operating model for digital business
  • Structuring a product management service and delivery approach
  • Executing an agile governance model to influence culture and decision making

A CIO’s 2021 marching orders come straight from the top: In a Gartner survey, 7 out of 10 boards demanded digital acceleration in a disrupted global climate, while operational excellence through digital business topped the forward-driving agenda. 

How does your digital strategy measure up to the mission?

In this session VC Gopalratnam will share the Philips story around modern digital transformation.

Among the key talking points:

  • What it means to be ‘digital-first’ – breaking down roadblocks and navigating roadmaps
  • What levers to pull to expand digital business and increase digital maturity
  • How the CIO can create credibility to drive the enterprise in a digital direction

Sophisticated enterprise risk management strategy is not necessarily the full mitigation of risk. For most information security executives, strategic risk management describes a cross-organisational framework to assess different areas of risk and determine when accepting those risks is in the net interest of the business. In order to inform strategy and accountability for risk management, CISOs must be able to leverage meaningful metrics and messaging.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Metrics that work – and don’t work – in describing information security risk
  • The role that the CISO plays in setting risk management strategy
  • Effective cross-functional partnerships in risk management

  • How to create an accurate inventory of all suppliers within your ecosystem
  • What to do when your third party gets breached
