As digital initiatives have accelerated quickly, IT and Security leaders must balance the right structures and strategies. Whether restructuring existing applications, infrastructure and security ecosystems or establishing resilient business operations in high-risk environments and times of crisis, CIOs and CISOs are immersed in strategising and building support for these critical business and security objectives.

In this interactive conversation among peers, CIOs and CISOs will discuss their role and partnership in proactively contributing to organisational success.

  • How are you advancing your operating model to deliver better speed, agility and innovation?

Topic 2: Fostering a digital-first mindset

  • How can the CIO and CISO partner more effectively to accelerate and secure digital business?
  • What’s new or next in your organisational structure to support digital business?
  • How have you established credibility in your role to drive the enterprise in a digital direction?
