Mitigating the Impact of Inflation Amid Tighter Budgets, Security Concerns, and Higher Expectations

With inflation reaching the highest levels in 40 years, IT leaders are headed into a challenging year in 2023. Top executives expect a faster time to value projects, so current resources will need to stretch, to maintain staffing levels. At the same time, the focus remains on cybersecurity as the threat landscape also continues to worsen. 

IT leaders must reevaluate which technologies they are making bets on and ensure value in their investments. It is critical for CIOs and CISOs to understand the likely impact of this global surge in inflation on the IT organisation to respond accordingly.

So, what actions should technology leaders take to mitigate the impact of inflation and strategically invest in the future?

Join this townhall to discuss:

  • Strategies to maximise talent investments in the face of wage inflation and deploying cost-effective tools to enhance productivity

  • How to get more from your cybersecurity spend when inflation rates climb

  • How to effectively identify important vendor relationships and create a plan to protect, nurture & optimise them
