Digital Transformation: A Journey Not a Destination

There are many forces that are driving companies to continue to transform how they do business. Technological advances such as IoT, AI, Machine Learning, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are creating demanding expectations from customers, employees and boards. Adding to the complexity of CIOs and CISOs is the increasing threats to the security of the data that is at the heart of digital transformation. This keynote presentation will focus on the realities that this transformation will never end and it is critical to implement both the mindset and processes to treat digital transformation as a journey...not a destination.

Which Third Parties Should We Trust?

It is not a matter of if, but a matter of when. Organizations, more and more, and are outsourcing business activities to third parties because of cost-savings, revenue opportunities, expertise, etc. Thus, collaborating with our business partners early to select the right third-party vendor(s) with the appropriate security posture is essential, especially for vendors hosting, processing and/or transmitting sensitive/regulatory information, or having access to our IT assets.

Takeaways:

  1. Regardless of the reasons, outsourcing some business functions to a third party seems inevitable in today's world.  
  2. It is critical to have a proper vetting procedure of third parties before engaging them as business partners who have access to company systems and data

Thought Leadership

Knowing Is Half the Battle - Protecting Applications & Their Sensitive Data

Application security testing tools scan your code to reveal the long lists of known vulnerabilities, but not all are remediated before the next release-even with mature secure software development practices. Enterprises resort to using theoretical levels of criticality - not actual risks-to prioritize which accumulated vulnerabilities to fix and in what order. Many vulnerabilities often undergo an exception process and make it into protocol. 

A real-time, embedded solution like Prevoty's runtime application self-protection RASP changes the game completely. Prevoty places an automated security mechanism at the front of the line - directly in the application's operating environment - to immediately lower risk and act as a compensating control at runtime. 

As such, Prevoty-enabled enterprises see 98%+ of their known vulnerabilities mitigated instantly, reducing backlogs and expediting an otherwise cumbersome release process. Prevoty RASP detects live production attacks and generates real-time security event longs and reports. Security teams can then correlate pre production vulnerability scan results with Prevoty's runtime attack logs to go back, remediate based on actual risk - not just hypothetical threats. The result? Improved forensics.

Thought Leadership

Rethink Security with Zero Trust

As today's attacks become more sophisticated, the pressure to protect access to enterprise systems and applications has grown considerably. Unlike the traditional security perimeter model, a Zero Trust approach dispels the notion of traditional models and moves toward a 'Never trust, Always verify' model for protecting access to data. Zero Trust recognizes that any network, device, user, or application could be compromised, and the credentials associated with them. As such, in order to better protect sensitive company resources, IT departments need to adjust their mindset and adopt a new way of thinking: that bad actors are already in their environment. Join us to hear how identity has become the hub of any Zero Trust framework, and discover several guiding principles and paradigms that help define a Zero Trust model. 

We'll examine: The current (broken) state of security and the role identity plays in cyber attacks, the massive rethink underway that redefines security to follow identity, and how Centrify is adopting a Zero Trust model approach with identity at the core, thus uniquely helping reduce risk through the power of identity services.

Future Proof Your Service Management

The service desk is under pressure to go faster, help more than just IT, and be more agile in supporting business or organizational value creation. To address this, we've seen increased self-service adoption, more automation, low-code development, extending service management across the enterprise, and the early promise of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Despite this, many service desks are still reactive and barely keeping their heads above water. In this session we will discuss proven approaches for improving service delivery and support today while building a foundation for the future.

Driving Digital Transformation: Proactive Path vs. Reactive Response

Shakespeare wrote that we should be afraid of greatness as "some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them". This is true today as well for CIOs and CISOs. Digital Transformation will happen, the only question being will the CIO drive it or will it be thrust upon them. We will discuss how to be a proactive voice in driving your company's Digital Transformation journey instead of waiting and responding to the voice of others.

Big Data, Little Data. Secure Data, Lost Data.

If digital transformation is a journey, then data is the fuel that will transport your company from here to there. What data do you have access to? How can you make sense out of the data and thus make decisions from it? How does a company use data to be a disruptor and not a victim? And how do you secure that data to ensure that the digital transformation journey doesn't end prematurely?

Designing the Digital Workplace

Employees are consumers of digital technologies such as IoT, AR and VR. The plethora of mobile devices has enabled them to work where they want and when they want which has raised the bar on employee expectations for tools and capabilities from their employers. In order for companies to retain the best and get the most out of their employees, it is vital to design and continually update the digital workplace. We will discuss the current trends as well as share case studies of successful digital workplace implementations. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Highly skilled employees will demand a mobile and efficient workplace.
  2. Keeping these skilled employees fully engaged and passionate about your company is critical to achieving the desired digital transformation.

Disrupt or Be Disrupted: The Digital Transformation Journey Has No Parking Lots

The seemingly ever expanding cadre of technological tools available to incumbent industry leaders are also available to myriad start-ups. Start-ups are using these new technologies to disrupt industries of all types, changing how customers think about tried and true industries. Disruption is found on every corner and it is critical for CIOs to lead their organizations in a way that make them as nimble as their competitors. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Technology enables companies, especially start-ups with no legacy infrastructure, to disrupt industries overnight. 
  2. CIOs need to lead their companies in ways that disrupt before they are disrupted by others.

Takeaways: 

  1. Building an ongoing community with your peers can be an invaluable resource for tackling the digital transformation projects ahead of you. 
  2. Sharing stories of success (and failures) is not reserved to a one-day CIO Summit, but should be shared on a regular basis with your peers.
