As a vaccine is made available to millions of people in early 2021, the future is looking brighter. But as business restrictions continue to dampen the economy, organizational leaders are looking for innovative ways to strengthen revenues and profits. In order to support the business effectively, CIOs 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 needed to help support a new way of working.

In this panel discussion, world-class technology executives will share their advice on the roles that CIOs and tech leaders can play in reimagining the business and the future of work.

EXECUTIVE PANEL:  Safeguarding the Enterprise Against Escalating Global Cyber Threats

Make no mistake – CISOs and cyber teams are at war against nation-state threat actors and other highly-trained adversaries. The recent SolarWinds cyber-attack is believed to be the most damaging hack of a Western government ever, along with still-to-be-determined impact on more than 425 companies in the Fortune 500 who receive services from SolarWinds. While the long-range impact for companies and government agencies continues to unfold, the attacks underscore how security is more important to organizations than ever. CEOs and Board members will be relying on CISOs and security leaders more than ever to help identify and respond to potential threats and to protect the enterprise and its crown jewels.

In this executive panel, CISOs and security leaders will share their recommendations for working with the CEO and the Board on looming cyber threats, including how best to communicate these risks and articulate where funding is needed most.
