Global CISO


As global economic and political volatility continues, the enterprise is looking at IT and Security functions to accelerate secure digital ecosystems in order to create an avenue for high growth and quicker benefits. To respond to this increased demand, CIOs and CISOs are scaling productivity by solving business challenges and architecting secure, sophisticated ecosystems. This ensures insights are delivered to key decision-makers. Organisations are moving beyond the stage of ‘transformation’ and now demanding digital execution, as they position the enterprise to weather economic storms and unpredictable setbacks in the future.

Join your peers to discuss how CIOs and CISOs are capturing the outcomes of digital execution.

Accelerating Decision Making for Timely Value Realisation

  • How secure is your current digital ecosystem? What about your data ecosystem? What are the next steps in making it both more secure and more efficient? 

  • What are you doing to enable business leaders with dashboards and insights in real-time? How are you protecting other Lines of Business’ data? 

  • Have you seen the level of adoption that you’d like from leaders to impact quicker decision-making? What steps have you taken to identify value realisation and measure outcomes obtained by data and analytics?

Digital Talent & Agility for Speedy Outcomes

  • What sort of roles are you hiring for in the coming year? Are they more business or technology-focused?

  • Many CIOs and CISOs are merging their teams for some tasks to enhance agility. Have you done this? If so, what benefits are you seeing? How are you changing mindsets, while supporting agile journeys?

  • How do you start building your tech, IT and security environments for the future workforce?
