TBD, San Francisco, CA


Future State 2025 - Driving Innovation to a Customer Centric Enterprise and Digital Roadmap

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 2019 San Francisco CISO Executive Leadership Summit.
