Creating Organizational Champions to Secure the Future Enterprise

Digital disruption is ushering a new wave of business model innovations. Because digital transformation is a journey, the CISO and other members of the C-suite must recognize that new technologies and emerging innovations represent continual change. As technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence and hyper-convergence offer new ways for doing business, the CISO is uniquely positioned to deliver bold, game-changing leadership, engender transformational innovation, and steer the enterprise into the next era of digital business. 

The leadership traits and skills required by technology leaders to help champion customer-centric efforts will be the focal point of the 2017 Atlanta CISO Executive Leadership Summit.

Emerging and significant security concerns threaten the enterprise daily and are becoming more complex as you broaden the scope from internal, to supply chain, and out to the customer. Today's CISOs are expected not only to drive efficiency, transparency and strengthen information and network security, but also to implement the best technologies and practices to establish and maintain relationships with their customers.

Key challenges include how do you logically secure a public cloud? Can you proactively automate security sensors and security incident responses? What does it take to move from ‘reactive’ to ‘proactive’ security?

This panel of security executives will share their views and experiences on how to meet these challenges as well as their priorities for the future enterprise security.
