Virtual Summit Boardroom Sessions

Accelerating Security at the Pace of the Business

In 2020, the multi-decade process of turning the digital enterprise inside out accelerated instantly. We’ve now passed an inflection point – most cyber assets live outside the old “walls” of the organization and cybersecurity controls must be scalable, flexible and reliable. How are CIOs partnering with CISOs to establish a security strategy that is an enabler of the digital business rather than an obstacle?

In this interactive session, you’ll discuss:

  • Redesigning cybersecurity architecture to enable the work-from-anywhere culture

  • Foundational technologies to support a global cybersecurity mesh 

  • Reconceptualizing traditional ideas of how to approach security within the enterprise and shifting the business mindset

Developing a Strategic Approach to Applications Rationalization

According to Gartner research, CIOs will increase their enterprise software spending by nearly 9% in 2021. As they upgrade legacy software and expand their offerings, technology leaders must pay careful attention to business alignment in order to maximize the value of their applications, advance key digital initiatives, and remain agile in the face of constant change. 

Join this boardroom to discuss best practices around:

  • Aligning your application footprint with your enterprise’s strategic objectives

  • Formulating principles for modernizing your application portfolio 

  • Creating architectures that can evolve to meet ever-changing business requirements 

Virtual Summit Keynote Session

CIOs Connecting Business, Data, and Technology

Those who want to exploit the potential of new data and advanced analytics capabilities at scale typically face numerous challenges. As CIO, it's critical to develop a strong, clear strategy connecting business, technology, and data and analytics to maintain your competitive advantage and mitigate these challenges.


In this session, CIOs will

  • Discuss best practices for designing data and analytics programs

  • Identify and define quick-win opportunities supporting the business data strategy

  • Brainstorm technology and resource alignment
