Trend Micro

As digital initiatives across ANZ industries have accelerated quickly, leaders must balance the right structures and strategies. Whether restructuring existing applications, infrastructure and security ecosystems or preempting new initiatives to bring services and applications to market faster than ever before, CIOs and CISOs are immersed in strategising and building support for these critical business objectives.

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

  • How have you evolved your cross-business partnerships in the past year?
  • What’s new or next in your organizational structure to support digital business?
  • How have you established credibility in your role to drive the enterprise in a digital direction?
