The need to respond to change has placed the highest demands on the CIO and CISO. The need for resiliency, adaptability, and new digital products has shifted from “nice to have” to “required”. CIOs and CISOs must join together with business leaders to champion innovative digital product offerings for companies to compete in the new economy.

The digital journey for traditional companies can be daunting. This discussion will explore highlights and challenges experienced through Delta Faucet’s adventure, including:

  • Innovating products to stay competitive
  • Creating the platform to match the needs of the business
  • Learnings along the way and what’s next

Diversity, equity and inclusion are top of mind for executives, but how are leaders implementing programs to initiate change? Leaders today are finding inspired pathways to create progressive and inclusive cultures, development opportunities, and collaborative opportunities to drive diversity initiatives. As DE&I programs remain a top priority, how are CIOs & CISOs bringing ideas to reality?

Join this session for a discussion on how to:

  • Leverage a culture of inclusion across the IT function to accelerate innovation and business outcomes
  • Reimagine tactics to hire more diverse talent
  • Create avenues that allow marginalized sections of the workforce to elevate

Added to the list of bona fides for today’s information security leader is a multilingual mandate for speaking the languages of risk. Business risk, legal risk and more all intertwine with an effective security strategy, yet the owners of each area don’t always see eye to eye. Where business units aren’t looking at risk the same way, an opportunity opens for malicious actors.

Join this session to discuss:

  • Successful examples of cross-functional partnerships in risk management
  • Metrics that effectively describe risk within, and outside of, security
  • Tips for leveraging risk discussions to gain support for security at board-level

In 2020, the multi-decade process of turning the digital enterprise inside out accelerated instantly. The inflection point has now passed – most cyber assets live outside the old “walls'' of the organization and cybersecurity controls must be scalable, flexible and reliable.

  • Reconceptualizing traditional ideas of how to approach security within the enterprise and shifting the business mindset
  • Recruiting and developing the right cybersecurity talent to match business needs
