Analytics & Cloud Together: Accelerating Innovation in the New Cognitive Era

Leading companies are disrupting the status quo by using data to inform business strategy and create new business models that fuel growth. CIOs have the power to uncover the insight that drives disruption and speeds transformation. Learn how leading IT organizations are maximizing the use of open source and cloud technologies alongside on-premises investments to accelerate innovation. And understand how CIOs are embracing new cloud-enabled consumption models while helping ensure data privacy, security and sovereignty. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Integrating analytics into key applications and systems can enable people throughout an organization to access and act on insights when and where it matters most.
  2. Take advantage of more sources to enable better decisions. IT must create an environment with easy access to all types of data - structured and unstructured - from internal sources and those outside the organization.
  3. Data science teams are answering the toughest questions by leveraging open source development platforms and tools to build models more quickly and easily.

Chicken Little Has Left the Room: Security Beyond Fear

We've been managing risk in our business for hundreds of years, yet we continue to treat cyber threats as a special case. While it's true that we're in a time of escalating, industrialized threats, organizations still react and lurch from one crisis to another, cobbling together a security program based on yesterdays crisis. It's time we move from a reactive, fear and compliance based program, to a business focused, risk-based approach to cyber security.

A New Model of Trust for a Zero Trust Online World

The 2018 Global State of Online Digital Trust, developed by Frost and Sullivan and commissioned by CA Technologies - This new research study was conducted during the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal in March and April of this year. The purpose of the study was to understand the true state of digital trust, is it improving, declining, and how is digital trust and the importance of it viewed by the different critical groups involved in the process - consumers, cybersecurity professionals and business decision from 10 different countries. 

During this presentation, cybersecurity expert David Duncan will share the results of the new study "The Global State of Online Digital Trust Index" conducted by CA and Frost & Sullivan in 2018, including: 

  • How consumers, cybersecurity professionals, and business decision makers, really feel about the current state of digital trust, 
  • The business implications of data breaches for organizations that have had a breach of trust with their customers, 
  • How to move consumers and business professionals to higher levels of trust, 
  • What technologies are needed to ensure better online trust with users and protect their information, and 
  • How to move beyond current authentication and access management technologies.

Thought Leadership

The Connected Worker & the Enterprise of Things

The smartphone is the primary communication and computing device for many of today's consumers. This dependency on mobile devices will translate into a majority of enterprise computing outside of traditional PC computing. This will have the greatest impact with on campus (non-office-based) and off campus mobile workers who are becoming increasingly connected by rich real time communications powered by mobile applications running on wearable devices such as smart glasses. The rise of IoT in the enterprise, or the Enterprise of Things, will allow these workers to instantly connect with assets in the field to gain immediate understanding of the situation around them. 

This session will explore the impact that these connected workers and endpoints will have on your enterprise and its ability to drive growth. Attendees will also learn security concerns that come with these new tools and how to best address them.

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.

Data Security, Cloud, Access Controls & Regulations: What's Ahead for 2018?

The business engine runs on the fuel of massive data, now found everywhere and threatened by dark actors while coming under more and more compliance mandates that also threaten the business with significant fines. 

  • Digital Security Central To Enterprise Strategy & Threat Landscape 
  1. Data is now everywhere - on-prem, cloud, contained by third parties. 
  2. Cloud has its challenges and only partially mitigates risk 
  3. Recent (2017) breaches - analysis  
  4. New and emerging regulations now pose a "threat" to the business with mandates that contain teeth and businesses are not ready. 
  5. It is really all about the data now, isn't it? The mandates are written around data security, privacy and consent.  
  • Access Controls  
  1. What does the emerging threat landscape look like? 
  2. One of the key issues allowing these threats to take place is a broken data model. 
  •  Governance & Regulations  
  1. GDPR, NY CRR - Broad Impacts (not technical)  
  2. Address compliance / build around risk (Why the regulations exist in the first place) 
  3.  What are the basics?

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 round table 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.

Designing a Digital Workplace: Balancing Security with Effectiveness

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 including how to deal with the inherent security risks of expanded accessibility to company resources. 

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

CIOs & CISOs Got Talent: Finding, Growing & Retaining the Best People

While new technology and solutions can help CISOs make more, faster and better decisions for an organization, nothing will take the place of a highly talented workforce. CISOs need to be great recruiters of talent but even more importantly growing the skills and capabilities of their team providing engaging and challenging opportunities for people. Competitive compensation is important for retaining great talent but so is a work environment where individual growth and development are front of mind and not an after thought.  

Takeaways:

  1. Highly skilled employees want an environment where they can grow their skills and feel appropriately challenged 
  2. Finding the best people, inside and outside of your company, and then providing a path to individual excellence is a key responsibility of CIOs

Think Tank

Are You Protecting the Privileged?

In this session, we will discuss the importance of making it more difficult for cyber attackers to access your organization's privileged accounts. Equally important is the ability for security teams to monitor behaviors for abnormal access to those accounts. During this session, CISOs and IT Security leaders will discuss strategies to prevent security breaches including tactics such as implementing mandatory multi-factor authentication (MFA) for all administrators. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Examples of success and failure when protecting privileged accounts.
  2. Steps to make your organization for secure when it comes to privileged accounts.

 

4:40 pm - 5:00 pm

What's the Next Stop On the Transformation Journey?

Our Governing Board will summarize the learnings from the day and discuss the path forward for building an ongoing community of CIOs where common issues can be addressed and success stories can be shared.

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
