Agenda


Executive Boardroom Sessions

Architecting a More Adaptive and Integrated IAM Strategy

IAM systems are the digital keys to your company’s castle. But the transition to remote, connect anywhere computing means there are thousands of keys created every day, each one exponentially increasing the risk of unauthorized access through any one of the systems your users access daily. So if identity is now the ultimate perimeter and that perimeter is constantly expanding and becoming more complex, how do you build a defense structure capable of protecting it?

During this peer discussion you will explore:

  • The role of zero trust in access management
  • How to implement IAM tools without negatively impacting the user experience or core business operations
  • How to engage other stakeholders and functions on their access needs to move beyond surface-level coordination


Executive boardrooms are intimate and interactive sessions designed to foster dynamic dialogue around a specific, strategic topic. These private, closed-door discussions encourage attendee participation and are limited to 15 attendees (seating priority is given to CIOs and CISOs).

Build and Protect for Tomorrow

The pandemic not only accelerated the pace of digital transformation— it heightened customer expectations as they now require personalized, intuitive, and immediate experiences in our increasingly digital world. However, this demand also creates a need for secure, performant, and resilient technology. That increase pushes businesses to expand their technological ecosystems and grow the way they think about interfacing with customers and employees. With this expansion and change, come inherent risks.
 
Join this session as your peers discuss:
•Creating unique opportunities for business transformation
•Balancing innovation, while managing and protecting new technologies
•Implementing strategies for future-proofing a framework that allows for faster modernization

As the business leader in charge of adding value to the company, finding the right talent and inspiring technology innovation, there’s an incredible amount of pressure.  It’s no surprise that CIOs are experiencing burnout at unprecedented rates.  While taking care of employees is important, how can CIOs make sure they are taking care of themselves to help make their careers sustainable while maintaining a sense of well-being?
