Business leaders have high expectations about generative AI and other emerging technologies that CIOs and CISOs must manage. As such, technology and cybersecurity leaders must have robust strategies in place to not only manage these technologies, but also communicate their benefits and risks. Executives across the organisation all have their own thoughts and priorities around what the technology should be used for, but how do you as a leader keep control of this narrative to ensure effective and secure deployment to drive digital business success?

As C-level and board expectations continue to rise around emerging technologies, coupled with minimal increased budgets and resources, what are the key levers CIOs and CISOs are using to grow partnerships, better align with the business on these powerful technologies, and mitigate risks?

Join your peers to discuss how CIOs and CISOs can create messaging that truly resonates with stakeholders on these emerging technologies.

Managing Ongoing Generative AI Expectations with Business Stakeholders

  • What’s the current direction your organisation is taking on Generative AI?
  • How are you communicating the benefits and risks to the board as the technology continues to develop?
  • What are the most effective use cases to share?
  • How are you ensuring responsible generative AI adoption and journey planning outside of IT? Do you have a governance plan in place or are you governing as you go?

Deciding your Generative AI Ambition

  • How are you defining your long-term AI ambition for the organisation? Who is involved in setting this strategy?

  • What measures are you putting in place to secure data sets and mitigate the risk of sophisticated attacks that exploit these technologies?

  • What will the overall implication on the workforce be with your strategy? Do you see generative AI as an enhancement or a replacement for the workforce?
