While the CIO and CISO roles will continue to evolve, all would agree that these jobs have fundamentally changed over the last five years. This dinner will be an opportunity to focus on what those changes mean to the way IT and security leaders must evaluate and implement the right technologies, foster a wide variety of partnerships across the business, build and develop strong teams, and bear an increased demand for high-level strategic thinking. Join your peers for this roundtable to assess your place in the post-transformation world.

Discussion Questions:

Discussion Topic 1: People

  • What are your strategies in communicating with the board of directors?
