4:00pm - 5:00pmExecutive Networking Reception

5:00pm - 6:30pmDiscussion Topics

Digital Transformation in a Security-Conscious World

Digital transformation is more than a buzzword. It’s the upswell calling all organizations to adapt in order to be continuously and competitively relevant. CISOs who aren’t in tune with their organization’s digital strategy and landscape place the business, its customers and partners at risk. While rapid changes in technology (cloud, IoT, applied AI) place the business at risk if it fails to embed security and the CISO into its digital planning. Join your peers to uncover ways to design security-first approaches that can scale – rather than sink – your digital journey, from operations and service delivery to product development and innovation.


Secure By Design?

  • Where and how does security currently feature in your organizations’ digital strategy planning (roadmapping, hiring, product development)? Where should it come into the equation?
  • What areas of your organization are being most impacted by digital initiatives?
  • How are you defining digital transformation -- within security; in your organization? Your industry?


Organizing for Digital Transformation

  • Do you employ DevSecOps processes? What’s working and how?
  • Selecting a risk assessment process – how do you decide what fits your digital business needs? What frameworks do you use to evaluate digital opportunities?
  • How are you navigating the impact of legal and regulatory mandates on digital business initiatives?


Investing in a Secure, Digital Future

  • What new opportunities – and security measures – have your cloud transitions opened up?
  • Where are you applying/looking to apply capabilities like AI and machine learning to solve evolving security concerns in future (adaptive authentication, insider threats, advanced attacks)?
  • With whom in the business do you collaborate to explore and maximize new business opportunities (AI, quantum, blockchain)?
  • How can CISOs plan and allocate for anticipated digital needs in 2 years? 5? (talent development, ensuring critical infrastructure in place)?
