EXECUTIVE INTERVIEW: Surviving (and Thriving) in 2021 and Beyond
Dr. David Bray, Inaugural Director, Global GeoTech Center & Commission, Atlantic Council
Our world is entering the "GeoTech Decade" where companies and individuals have gained access to both technological and advanced data capabilities that previously were only available to the national security apparatuses of large nation states thirty to forty years ago. Companies both big and small face nation-state backed digital disruptions to include increasingly complicated tech-meets-geopolitical landscapes, trade wars, the impacts of COVID-19 and a slow global recovery, the challenges of bot-driven misinformation that increasingly polarizes societies, as well as the risk of international tensions becoming more heated and kinetic. Yet, in every crisis there are also opportunities. Join us for a discussion on how to survive and thrive in these turbulent times.
10:20 AM - 10:40 AM PT
EXECUTIVE PANEL: Leading Courageously and Authentically in a Time of Uncertainty
Jennifer Wesson Greenman, CIO, Cancer Treatment Centers of America Global
Kimberly Stevenson, SV & GM Foundational Data Services, NetApp
Moderator: Hunter Muller, President & CEO, HMG Strategy
As the clock turns to 2021, hope is on the horizon as millions of COVID-19 vaccinations are being distributed across the world. Yet, we continue to live in turbulent times, which will continue into the foreseeable future. The global health crisis is impacting everything from customer behavior to existing business models and supply chains operations, resulting in dramatic shifts to remote work and organizational culture. Meanwhile, CEOs are worried about the health and safety of their employees. Now, more than ever, CIOs, CISOs, CTOs, CDOs and technology executives are being looked upon by the CEO, the Board and Line-of-Business (LOB) leaders to lead courageously, authentically and with transparency to enable their organizations and their teams to succeed and guide the path to a brighter future.

EXECUTIVE PANEL: Safeguarding the Enterprise Against Escalating Global Cyber Threats
Panelists coming soon!
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.

EXECUTIVE PANEL: Cultivating a Connected Culture
Panelists coming soon!
One of the greatest challenges cited by CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, CDOs and technology executives in the HMG community – especially during the second half of 2020 – is finding effective ways to keep employees engaged and motivated for the long haul in a remote work environment. This also dovetails with how members of the C-suite are looking to foster a culture of high-performance leadership across the enterprise. Looking out across 2021, tech executives will be looking for fresh ways to imbue a connected and inclusive culture – both for long-term employees as well as new hires.
