Agenda


Keynote Sessions

Innovating an Approach to Cybersecurity with Authentic Leadership

You read that right! Lisa Davis and Eddie Borrero, the EVP & CIO and VP & CISO of Blue Shield of California, are bringing their authentic leadership style to their cybersecurity strategy. Together, they closely collaborate to inspire employees to appreciate the importance of security at all levels with an advocacy- and data-driven approach. The duo collaborates as a true team to find the balance of protecting the organization, while still allowing for quick decision-making in a cloud-first ecosystem.

Join this session as they explore:

  • The dynamic and structure of the CIO and CISO relationship
  • Authentic leadership’s power to motivate your people to mitigate risk
  • Connecting change to a cloud-first strategy with security

From Buzzword to Business Tool: A Story of Successful AI Adoption


It’s time to move past the theoretical and talk about the actual adoption of AI integrations. Regardless of where you are, lessons can be learned from each enterprise that has undergone some type of adoption process. This keynote will explore lessons learned, governance and different perspectives to consider as you deploy your own journey.

Join this keynote to learn:

  • Recent progress, evolution and trends
  • Challenges and opportunities with adoption
  • GenAI and LLM lessons and how to learn from them


The Performance Paradox — Mental Health and High Productivity

Today's relentless pursuit of success can lead to profound dissatisfaction and dramatically affect mental health. Accomplishments lack satisfaction, work is ceaseless, sleep and self-care are sacrificed. Recognizing this, leaders can play a pivotal role in breaking this cycle and nurturing a healthier and more fulfilled workforce.

Join this keynote from a mental health educator and former lawyer to learn:

  • How time, efficiency, and productivity challenges individual and community health
  • Why mental health of individuals and teams drives performance (and not vice versa)
  • What steps leaders can take, for themselves and others, to shift away from the paradox and towards a more healthy relationship with work



Breakout Sessions

Building an AI-Powered and Secure Unstructured Data Strategy

Your unstructured data holds immense value in the files that define your business. To maximize the potential of this data, it's crucial to establish a comprehensive unstructured data strategy that prioritizes both security and AI integration.

Join this session to learn about:

  • Identifying your valuable unstructured data sources and tools
  • Developing robust security measures for internal and external data use
  • Balancing AI with stringent security and compliance protocols to increase utility

Executive Boardroom Sessions

Privacy by Design — Win Consumer Trust and Loyalty in Age of AI

Personal data holds immense value for organizations and, as more commerce takes place over digital channels, consumers are increasingly concerned about what’s happening to all their data.  According to a recent study, 98% of consumers want brands to do more to guarantee the privacy of their data, as well as be more transparent about how their data is used. Earning consumer trust starts with being a good steward of customer data, which makes the topic of data privacy and protection a critical issue for all businesses, and especially for those companies looking to use new AI tools to scale.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Navigating the convergence of consumer, government, and market forces that shape global flows of data
  • Integrating privacy by design principles into the entire customer journey and product life cycle
  • Responsibly leveraging new technologies, such as AI, without sacrificing customer trust and loyalty
