Agenda


Executive Boardroom Sessions

The Changing Face of the Digital CIO

The focus of the CIO role is now on broader strategic projects and aligning an organisations IT infrastructure with its business goals. Liberated of some “lights on” concerns, today’s CIOs can directly influence product and service development by interacting with internal business partners and customers to better understand their needs. Some IT Leaders have the full backing of the board, and some are still leveraging newly found influence to find their seat at the table. But what are the key skill sets CIOs need to foster to ensure success and adapt at a time where business needs are quickly changing. Join this boardroom to discuss:

  • The need for CIOs to shift their mindset to focus on driving true business change and the vital role culture plays in this shift
  • The importance for CIOs to forge stronger relationships across the business
  • Practical steps CIOs can take to make digital journeys take hold, with a focus on harnessing data effectively, and gaining buy-in from other business leaders

Executive boardrooms are intimate and interactive sessions designed to foster dynamic dialogue around a specific, strategic topic. These private, closed-door discussions encourage attendee participation and are limited to 15 attendees (seating priority is given to CIOs).

The Modern CISO’s API Security Strategy – What’s Next?

In today’s climate, having a holistic view on API security is key to protecting organisations from the ever-expanding API attack surface. Proactively securing your environment from API security vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and design flaws are among the biggest challenges that security leaders face. How can CISOs identify and eliminate attack surfaces before an incident, and actively test APIs for vulnerabilities throughout the lifecycle, in addition to preventing real-time attacks?

Join this session to discuss:

  • Remediating management and configuration issues before they become a problem
  • Security testing for DevOps that integrate into the tools your team is already using
  • How to build a framework and network architecture to support the rise in remote employees

Executive boardrooms are intimate and interactive sessions designed to foster dynamic dialogue around a specific, strategic topic. These private, closed-door discussions encourage attendee participation and are limited to 15 attendees (seating priority is given to CISOs).

A Reimagined IT Operating Model to Drive Business Value

Digital transformation is happening at such speed that IT organisations must act now or risk being left behind. The ambitious CIO must prioritise operational efficiency to shift operating models and still deliver on value and business growth.

Join this boardroom to hear from IT leaders who have successfully transformed their IT strategy by:

  • Establishing a methodology to determine an effective operating model for their business needs
  • Overcoming silos and legacy technology to boost adoption of new business models
  • Creating a governance programme which reviews end-to-end processes and support change management

Cybersecurity is Everyone’s Responsibility

Cybersecurity is a continuous battle for CIOs; both from external threats and internal users’ IT hygiene. CIOs must work across business units to communicate an education strategy which integrates IT hygiene into an organisation’s culture. Improving internal resiliency is one step closer to the goal of mitigating cyber risk.

Join this boardroom to discuss how to: 

  • Embed IT risk into organisation culture to elevate users’ accountability in protecting the business
  • Upskill teams to demonstrate the value strong IT hygiene brings to an organisation
  • Pressure-test applications and network capabilities to keep up with an ever-changing security landscape

Breakout Sessions

Framing Security Leaders as Business Enablers

The need for security and business teams to be on the same page has never been greater. With economic uncertainty on the horizon and an evolving security landscape, CISOs must understand business’ risk appetite to create opportunities for growth. By enabling business units to achieve their ROI under tight security awareness, Security Leaders contribute to optimising revenue.

Join this session to explore how to: 

  • Interpret your business team’s risk appetite and integrate into an IT framework
  • Streamline cyber awareness across business units to encourage adoption of security guidelines
  • Communicate how strong security tools impact tangible business value


Steering IT Transformation with Data Literacy Initiatives

Data transformation is top of mind for CIOs who want to gain competitive advantage. To keep pace, it is vital the entire organisation can articulate, interpret and query data-driven insights. Understanding how to execute an educational strategy which increases data literacy and IT hygiene will accelerate digital business.

In this session, you will learn to:

  • Encourage business units to adopt a self-service data approach with solutions that fuel autonomous decision-making
  • Balance a data governance strategy with a robust security roadmap to ensure team collaboration
  • Communicate how a data-driven mindset will encourage users to become cognizant of security threats  


Keynote Session

Third-Party Cyber Risk — Zero-Day Findings and Mitigation

Managing distributed risk is today’s defining cybersecurity challenge. Mitigation of zero-day vulnerabilities is critical as adversaries exploit supply chain entities. This session explores how to identify all third parties impacted by zero-day vulnerabilities and guide their mitigation efforts. Your vendor, supplier, and partner ecosystem is now your enterprise attack surface.

Join this session to learn:

  • How to manage distributed risk associated with hundreds and even thousands of vendors, suppliers, and partners
  • Approaches to identify, prioritise, and mitigate active threats and critical/zero-day vulnerabilities
  • Strategies to reduce supply chain/external ecosystem risk associated with zero-day
