With a constantly evolving organization, IT environments need to be simplified and agile allowing new technology to thrive next to legacy systems. As security threats grow and evolve, so does our need to modernize quickly and efficiently. Within a modern workplace, our needs to securely embrace employees productivity from home or elsewhere must evolve too. How we approach investments today can deliver greater value in the future.

As technology and security leaders, CIOs and CISOs must continue to tackle these challenges on a daily basis, but what tangible outcomes exist? What can be done today to modernize what we have in place with minimal disruption to productivity?

Come together with your peers to have an in-depth discussion on the challenges you face with modernization and what considerations you might be missing as we all tackle this together.

Current Landscape and Outlook of Modernization

  • What does it mean to be a modern organization?
  • From your lens and industry, what is IT up against as it applies to security, complexities, productivity and keeping costs low?
  • How are CIOs and CISOs providing a modern work experience? Are there any unique aspects you are modeling now?

How to Prepare for the Future

  • What are key pillars CIOs and CISOs are considering when modernizing their tech stack?
  • With future technology considerations in mind, what foundational elements have you already put in place?
  • How do you measure the success of technology modernization? What key performance indicators (KPIs) or metrics will be used?
