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
