The CIO and CISO Role in Accelerating Digital Business

As digital initiatives across enterprises have accelerated quickly, leaders must balance the right structures and strategies. Whether restructuring existing applications, infrastructure and security ecosystems or preempting new initiatives to bring services and applications to market faster than ever before, CIOs and CISOs are immersed in strategizing and building support for these critical business objectives.

In this interactive conversation among peers, CIOs and CISOs will discuss their role in proactively contributing to organizational success.  

Topic 1: Designing a holistic digital framework

  • How are you evolving your operating model to deliver better speed, agility and innovation? 
  • How are you optimizing for future resilience and not just immediate efficiency?
  • How are you shifting funding from less valuable initiatives to new channels or services?

Topic 2: Fostering a digital-first mindset

  • How have you evolved your cross-business partnerships in the past year?
  • What’s new or next in your organizational structure to support digital business?
  • How are you establishing credibility in your role to drive the enterprise in a digital direction?
