Lead, Reimagine, Reinvent - Driving a Collaborative Culture 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 2018 New York CISO Executive Leadership Summit.
