Virtual CIO/ CISO Central Summit

July 28, 2020

Virtual CIO/ CISO Central Summit

In today’s digital landscape, the role of the CIO has become the most dynamic amongst their peers. CIOs are focused on finding the most transformative technologies that enable them to bring value to their enterprise and customers.

Adopting an enterprise wide transformation strategy is driven by fundamental shifts in internal and external forces that impact the business and how it operates. Disruptive technologies are being introduced to the market faster than ever and executives must have the ability to align and address the enterprise-wide transformation challenges. These changes will ultimately influence strategic planning, business operations and the overall trajectory of the operating model moving forward. With unceasing demands, technology has become more complex and solution providers more difficult to decipher.

In July, Apex Assembly will unite visionary leaders and industry experts for a half day of content and discussion, where we will examine the challenges of 2019 and concentrate on the most pressing issues of 2020 in the information technology sector.

Through collaboration with our executive community, we have discovered key industry challenges and trends. These topics form the foundation of the Summit and will be addressed through Panels, Disrupter sessions, and Fireside chats.

Hosted using video conferencing technology, our Virtual Summit gives executives and service providers the opportunity to engage with like-minded executives and industry leaders without having to leave their office or home.

Anyone can log in from anywhere. All you need is WiFi.

Many longstanding organizational policies were significantly relaxed to in the first few months of 2020 to enable a global workforce to work from home. Security policies that forbid activities including taking corporate systems out of the protections of the corporate office, working with highly-sensitive information at home, extending the enterprise network to personal devices and using unapproved software have all been stretched. Even more unfortunate, the scourge of cyberattacks, phishing and ransomware have taken advantage of the situation and epically increased in intensity. It’s time to restore balance – and to begin both working remotely and working securely.

In this session, we’ll explore:
– Balancing employee experience and agility with appropriate WFH usage of highly-regulated data and sensitive intellectual property.
– Options for enhancing confidentiality, integrity, availability and safety across situations, endpoints, networks, apps – and browsers.
– Designing for compliance, resiliency, assurance and visibility – while being continuously audit-ready.
– Incorporating workspace policies to enable the workforce to be continuously situationally aware and contextually risk-appropriate.
