Grand Hyatt New York, New York, NY


Reimagining the Business and the Future of Work in a Secure Enterprise

As regional economies gradually open up, many executives believe that both business and the nature of work will change forever. In order to support the business effectively, CIOs, CISOs and technology executives need to help reimagine and reinvent the business and help the CEO and line-of-business leaders identify new opportunities in core, parallel and new markets. Technology executives also must work with the executive team to identify what the future of work looks like and provide the infrastructure and tools necessary to support this new way of working.

In this Hybrid Summit - which blends a small number of in-person speakers and attendees on location then is broadcast out to a wider audience - top technology executives will share their advice on the roles that CISOs and tech leaders can play in reshaping the business and the future of work.
