Steering Cultural Change

An IT executive's role, goals and objectives have drastically changed over the years. Most leaders supervise teams and units beyond their IT department. Due to these changes in responsibilities, their success is measured in greater business metrics. As a result, these roles have become both more attractive and more demanding.  

Takeaways: 

  • What are the significant changes regarding the role of the IT Executive 
  • How to keep up with the changing requirements 
  • How to properly measure an IT executive's success

Case Studies in Digital Transformation: Learnings Along the Journey

We will explore key learnings from various industries and verticals on the good, the bad and the ugly of digital transformation. We will have an opportunity to not only be exposed to successful use cases, but also ask the hard questions behind those successes. 

Takeaways: 

  • One of the best ways to learn is to hear the stories of success (and failure) from companies similar to yours 
  • Asking questions of HOW the journey unfolded are just as important as the end result

Supply and Demand: Closing the Growing Gap in Cybersecurity Skills

At a time when the threat landscape ever expanding, two out of three organizations worldwide claim to have a lack of the IT security staff needed. The need for cybersecurity professionals is at an all-time high. The deficit of qualified individuals has made the need for automated security tools more of a requirement than a desire in order to maintain a strong security foundation. Today's products and technologies can enable even small teams to appropriately secure multiple websites and applications, offering potential answers to the pressing recruitment issues. 

Takeaways: 

  • There is a critical lack of qualified IT specialists 
  • Staffing deficits increase the need for automated tools 
  • New products can assist small teams facing big security challenges

Think Tank

Bring Your Own . . . Enhancement

Over the next 5 years, it's forecasted that roughly 30% of enterprises will augment BYOD policies to include 'bring your own enhancement' (BYOE) to add focus to augmented staff members. It will be tempting for IT to try and regulate or control human augmentation technology, but the real focus should be to exploit the employee's interest in BYOE to advance the business. We are seeing manufacturing companies currently using wearables to promote worker safety, and companies in both travel and healthcare industries are using these devices to boost productivity. With these technologies constantly evolving, organizations should contemplate how these enhancements can be leveraged in both the personal and professional lives of the workforce. 

Takeaways: 

  • Impactful examples of BYOE 
  • Technology Strategies to encourage employees to use AI 
  • Critical considerations for IT's need to regulate Augmented Technology

Executive Boardroom

Passwords are So Last Decade

From biometrics to SSO, unique authentication to new mobile technologies - passwords, are being phased out by many organizations. Deemed by a lot of organizations as archaic and unsecure, passwords face an unsteady future in 2020. Find out how companies are eliminating risks and gaining security by examining new forms of logins.

Executive Boardroom

Becoming More Decentralized

Today, increased centralization has put the power and trust into the hands of the few big players. This, of course, raises many security concerns. The risk of disruptions and undesirable outcomes increases as centralization opens the door to exclusive possession or control of commodities and services. As a result, technologies like Blockchain implemented to create decentralized alternatives as they move computing resources away from centralized servers. 

Takeaways: 

  • Evaluating the risks of centralization on availability, confidentiality and resiliency 
  • Exploring decentralized technologies like Blockchain and edge computing that offer visibility as well as enhanced security for your organization 
  • Understand the fact or fictionalization of developing AI strategies and the cause for concern for decentralized AI models

Securing the Human Factor

The biggest fear is not the technology. Who is responsible for mistakes that take place using technology, which can potentially lead to a cyberattack? The majority of CISOs agree that an employee carelessly falling victim to a phishing scam is the most likely cause of a security breach. How do we guard against human error without limiting employee efficiency and productivity? Takeaways: Are technologies vulnerable to user error? Phishing Scams are the biggest culprit for breaches. Training is essential to implementing new technologies at your organization

AI: Friend or Foe?

Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) are introducing new technologies to a wide array of products across every industry, especially cybersecurity. Facial recognition and natural language processing have become a reality thanks to deep learning algorithms, however, there is a dark side to these advancements. Cybercriminals have managed to weaponize AI to create extremely intricate malware and attack methods. This has forced organizations to use advanced heuristic solutions rather than counting on known vulnerability and attack signatures. 

Takeaways: 

  • Artificial Intelligence products are already being deployed in many industries 
  • Features like facial recognition and chat bots are common examples 
  • Cybercriminals can weaponize this technology without proper security measures

Think Tank

The Internet of Things (IoT) Meets the Internet of Behaviors (IoB)

We are approaching a point where individual activities tracked by IoT devices and systems will be recorded digitally by an "Internet of Behavior" (IoB) to influence benefits and service eligibility for people across the world. The idea behind IoB is to be able to digitally link a person with their actions. For example, connecting your identify by way of facial recognition with an activity such as renting a car will be tracked digitally. In addition, IoB will also be used to influence specific behaviors. For example, Progressive's Snapshot and Allstate's Drivewise offerings monitor and record a driver's behaviors and in turn offer higher or lower rates based upon those behaviors. However, there have been concerns raised over the ethical implications of spreading this technology to social services (i.e. schools or assisting living) in an attempt to compensate or discipline certain behaviors. 

Takeaways: 

  • How the internet of behaviors delivers a digital replication of consumers' actions 
  • Strategies and considerations leveraging facial recognition software for everyday verification 
  • What are the concerns regarding the ethics of IoB, and are they valid?

Going Mobile, Securely

The average employee uses at least 3 different mobile devices to access business data. This number has risen and so has the amount of company data that is being stored on each device. Each device represents another endpoint that needs to be secured. While mobile malware threats are low, it's expected that there will be a rise in data breaches directly related to mobile devices. Providing access to company data via a secure web application infrastructure with real-time vulnerability management is one way of reducing risk with mobile devices. 

Takeaways: 

  • Mobile devices are generally considered safe means to access business data 
  • Employees use an average of three mobile devices, each is its own security challenge 
  • Data breaches through mobile devices are expected to increase

Think Tank

Security in the Crosshairs - The Future Comes into Focus

All organizations, regardless of size, are continuously evolving through modern technologies. Having an incident response plan and an effective cybersecurity strategy is not a luxury, but rather a requirement. Finally, security training for employees to improve their awareness is becoming the rule instead of the exception. Security is now establishing a permanent footprint within the software development lifecycle, with SecDevOps/DevSecOps processes to incorporate security at all layers of development. 

Takeaways: 

  • Any organization can fall victim to a data breach 
  • Having a plan of action is essential to business survival 
  • Security has become a part of the conversation at nearly every level of an organization
