Building for the Future — Business Enablers, Drivers and Innovators

The CIO and CISO roles have evolved to become customer-facing, revenue-driving digital experts. While the term digital means something different to every organization, the basic goal remains the same — to better serve customers and the business.

During this engaging conversation among peers, CIOs and CISOs will discuss their role in driving stronger business outcomes throughout the organization.

  • Building and Innovating New Processes and Businesses
    • What tactics have you used to increase awareness of technology and security across the business? How can you more effectively drive these conversations and changes?
    • How are you improving the cost, efficiency and value of program delivery?
  • Fostering a Growth Mindset — Enabling and Optimizing Culture
    • How should IT and security organizations foster a work culture that embraces change while enabling the business to move forward?

 How are you developing your employees to have an owner mindset, and how can they strategically become business advisors and advocates for innovation?
