CIOs must balance security, with innovation and speed - and are asked to create IT environments that can adapt to spikier workloads, interdependent applications, and more data at the edge, even as cyber-attacks and ransomware increase. How can businesses digitally transform with the cloud – ensuring they have a secure environment where customer data is not compromised – while dealing with application sprawl and siloed data? The answer is clear - a secure and open hybrid cloud architecture, but the path to getting there is murky.

In this discussion, we will explore ways to:

  • Connect and integrate across a distributed and hybrid cloud environment to create a common experience for applications and data
  • Modernize and de-risk regulated industries to keep workloads compliant, secure, and resilient
  • Optimize control of decentralization to manage and maintain enterprise systems infrastructure.

Two major priorities for CIOs are enabling employees to work more productively and improving the customer experience.

How can these changes support the kind of hyper-personalization and knowledge accumulation that delivers customer satisfaction at every step of the journey?

Attendees of this keynote will leave with the insights needed to:

  • Identify unseen security risks by gaining complete visibility in a rapidly expanding attack surface
  • Get ahead of exposure by prioritizing high impact vulnerabilities and threats
  • Secure the assets, recover unnecessary CapEx and OpEx and free staff for priority initiatives

Ultimately, when looking at accelerating your security strategy, it is critical to prioritize and invest in your information security team.

During this session you will explore:

  • Securing cybersecurity to support the work-from-anywhere culture
  • How business transformation is forcing security teams to think outside the box
  • How to embrace new technologies that keep you relevant and competitive

Guest Speaker

Today’s CIOs face daunting challenges. 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? 

Join this keynote to explore:

  • Evidence-based strategies that can help alleviate burnout
  • How to recognize the signs and symptoms of toxic stress and burnout
  • How to remain engaged, energized, and focused during turbulent times
