The ability to pivot nimbly in a rapidly changing world can be a major asset. However, making the transition demands the reimagining of business models, technology strategies and company culture—all at the same time. Restructuring a segregated project management model reaps major rewards at the divisional and enterprise-wide levels.

Innovation and progress are the lifeblood of a robust enterprise. With a more complex operating model comes the need for a much more robust security strategy. To improve business outcomes, the forward-thinking leader is continuously adopting new technologies and protecting existing assets.

In this interactive conversation, CISOs will have the opportunity to discuss what organizations are doing to embrace the digital era.

Topic 1: Embracing an Age of Agility

  • What are you doing to create an agile enterprise culture?
  • How are you implementing a continuous delivery model
  • How are you fostering rapid innovation?

Topic 2: Innovating to Drive the Enterprise

  • Focusing in on just one or two, what cybersecurity initiatives are you prioritizing as you look ahead to the next year (Data, Cloud Security, etc.)?
  • How are you working to align these security priorities with your business’ goals?
  • As we move forward into the next year, what are you hoping to see as a result of your security-business partnerships?

6:45pm - 7:15pm  Networking Break

7:15pm - 8:30pm  Summary Discussion & Dinner

8:30pm - 9:30pm  Social Hour

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming in-person gathering
