The ability to pivot nimbly in a rapidly changing world can be a major asset. However, making the transition demands the reimagining of business models, technology strategies and company culture—all at the same time. Restructuring a segregated project management model reaps major rewards at the divisional and enterprise-wide levels.

Innovation and progress are the lifeblood of a robust enterprise. With a more complex operating model comes the need for a much more robust security strategy. To improve business outcomes, the forward-thinking leader is continuously adopting new technologies and protecting existing assets.

In this interactive conversation, CIOs & CISOs will have the opportunity to discuss what organizations are doing to embrace the digital era.

Topic 1: Embracing an Age of Agility

  • What are you doing to create an agile enterprise culture?

  • How are you implementing a continuous delivery model

  • How are you fostering rapid innovation?

Topic 2: Securing the Next Wave of Technology

  • How are you embracing new technologies and innovative improvements?

  • How are you combining high visibility and zero trust to protect individual and collective assets?

  • What advancements are needed for a more robust security strategy?

6:45pm - 7:15pm  Networking Break

7:15pm - 8:30pm  Summary Discussion & Dinner

8:30pm - 9:30pm  Social Hour

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming in-person gathering
