Agenda


Virtual Summit Keynote Session

CIOs Connecting Business, Data, and Technology

 According to Gartner, the challenge for many IT and business leaders today is to instill a culture of data-driven decision making across the organization. Those who want to exploit the potential of new data and advanced analytics capabilities at scale typically face numerous challenges. As CIO, it's critical to develop a strong, clear strategy connecting business, technology, and data and analytics to maintain your competitive advantage and mitigate these challenges.

 

In this session, CIOs will

  • Discuss best practices for designing data and analytics programs

  • Identify and define quick-win opportunities supporting the business data strategy

  • Brainstorm technology and resource alignment 


Virtual Summit Boardroom Sessions

Merging Zero Trust and SASE

Organizations are feeling a shift in the world of networking and security as they rapidly adopt and embrace the cloud. Enterprises need efficiency, visibility and security without compromise. The secure access service edge, better known as SASE, and zero trust implementations can provide a more comprehensive security capability to truly support digital transformation.

In this session, you will discuss:

  • Problems SASE can address in the modern enterprise
  • Benefits of planning both SASE and zero trust implementations
  • How to best position your organization for this transition

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
