The role of the CIO has been on a steady rise for the past several years. As the way people work continues to change, the demands from today’s global, mobile, and distributed workforce are also rapidly evolving. We’re at a point in time where the CIO is now front and center to defining the digital culture of an organization with a mega-trend at play that I like to call, ‘Systems of Experience.’ During my talk, I will focus on the role of the CIO amidst this shifting tide and what it takes to create a digital culture to support the future of work.

When the world changed months ago, most CISOs founds themselves facing a new set of challenges. As millions of employees began working from home, any remaining notion of organizations having a defined perimeter to defend was put to rest. Security technology executives must work with the executive team to identify what securing the future of work looks like and provide the infrastructure and tools necessary to support this new way of working. This panel of security executives will share their advice on the roles that CISOs can play in securing the future of work.

  • Sonatype

    The Sonatype journey started 10 years ago, just as the concept of “open source” software development was gaining steam. From our humble beginning as core contributors to Apache Maven, to supporting the world’s largest repository of open source components (Central), to distributing the world's most popular repository manager (Nexus), we’ve played a meaningful role in helping the world embrace the power of open innovation. Over time, we witnessed the staggering volume and variety of open source libraries that began flowing into every development environment in the world. We understood that when open source components are properly managed, they provide tremendous energy for accelerating innovation. Conversely, when unmanaged, open-source "gone wild" can lead directly to security vulnerabilities, licensing risks, enormous rework, and waste. Our vision today is simple. We are laser-focused on helping organizations continuously harness all of the good that open source has to offer, without any of the risks.
