2022 Focus: CIOs and CISOs as Transformation Leaders

Successful IT and security leaders in the new world focus on the people, but why didn't they always? Leaders have to become the trusted advisor to the wider executive. It's important for IT and security executives to be associated with transformation and collaboration as much as they are with the tin, the wires and the power point projector. 

 In this session we'll look at: 

 

  • IT and security executives place on the board
  •  How to build the team as a transformation team
  • Leadership should be fluent in new technology leaders, why? 
  • What do you need to lead a digital transformation team

Thought Leadership | Addressing the Technology Skills Gap

Addressing the Technology Skills Gap: Reskilling and Upskilling

In the digital age, technology teams are only as successful as their skills are relevant. Companies are under pressure to become more agile, protect against rising security threats, and continuously deliver innovations to the market. This begs the question - how do you keep up with the constant pace of change in technology? 

Join this session to hear how leaders must see technology skills as a strategic and essential part of successful digital transformation, as well as how they can gain the clarity they need to lead, and the skills they need to move faster.

Why are enterprises still spending money building more complicated - and more ineffective - corporate perimeters?

CISO Think Tank: Beyond the numbers… where real security risk lies

11:20 AM - 11:45 PM

The security industry is now a $160B+ industry. So how are we doing? Many CISOs are feeling the pressure of selecting just the right products from a field of thousands of vendors and even more providers. But where does the real risk lie? In what you have detected or what you haven't? Once a company has put millions of dollars into improving cyber security but are still getting compromised, then what? One CISO's perspective on how to look at the overarching issues we face in trying to detect and stop cyber attacks before they start.

Think Tank | Cognitive Computing - Recognizing the Next era of AI

11:40 AM - 12:05 PM

Cognitive Computing - Recognizing the Next era of AI

 

  • How does natural language processing (NLP) work to understand human speech? Learn how this has advanced to combine with image recognition reading lips to enable greater accuracy 
  • Historically, AI has created an algorithm to solve a particular problem. How does cognitive computing work differently to seek a universal algorithm for the brain? How can this algorithm solve a vast array of problems in the future?
  • How will cognitive computing enable advancements in humans and machines (including robots) to work better together

Executive Boardroom | A myriad of Apps… but just as many threats

12:10 PM - 12:35 PM
