It’s a challenging time for all organizations, but the most important thing for companies to do right now is to take care of their employees. How are you keeping your team productive and innovative during these changing times?

In this panel discussion, CIOs will discuss:

  • Platforms that allow for greater remote communication
  • Challenges or successes that have come from a new team dynamic
  • Ways to foster employee engagement

8:45am - 9:00am CDT Break

Fueled by the Power of Data

Smart organizations are infusing the intelligence of AI and the agility of hybrid cloud to better predict and shape future outcomes and automate decisions and processes. As a result, organizations can empower people to do higher value work and hyper-personalize digital experiences. However, only 2 of 10 firms have scaled AI solutions.

Join this boardroom to discuss:

  • Preventing project stall due to data complexity, talent scarcity, and a lack of trust in AI systems
  • Scaling AI across the organization with the right approach and architecture
  • Leveraging AI technologies to proactively optimize workflows and experiences

Do You Speak Risk?

Chris Reed headshot

Chris Reed

Information Security Director

McCarthy Building

Added to the list of bona fides for today’s information security leader is a multilingual mandate for speaking the languages of risk. Business risk, legal risk and more all intertwine with an effective security strategy, yet the owners of each area don’t always see eye to eye. Where business units aren’t looking at risk the same way, an opportunity opens for malicious actors.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Successful examples of cross-functional partnerships in risk management
  • Metrics that effectively describe risk within, and outside of, security
  • Tips for leveraging risk discussions to gain support for security
