New technologies such as IoT, the automation of virtually all business processes, and the increasing digital connectedness of the entire value chain not only create agility, but they also significantly raise cyber security risks and threat levels.

As next-generation devices are also being deployed in potentially vulnerable environments such as vehicles, hospitals, and energy plants, there is a vastly increased risk to human welfare, as well threats to a business itself. Concerns about such devices being hacked, turned into botnets, and used to attack targeted computers and organizations are growing, and with the stakes so high, senior IT leaders need to adopt a more proactive approach to securing critical data.

This transformative change must happen not only with technology, but also with core people processes, culture and behavioral change is required. It also requires organizations to overcome significant trust barriers and collaborate with competitors and law enforcement agencies to effectively target the threats.

This session will discuss the changes that need to be made in order to combat this new ear of cyber warfare, and the proactive approach organizations need to uptake if they are to transform their cyber security strategy.

4:30pm - 5:00pm - Panel Debate


The workplace is rapidly evolving, and today’s leading CIOs and CISOs recognize the need to enable business transformation for a digital-secure first world. But without a holistic view of the organization, simply adding new technologies can do more harm than good. For true digital transformation success, organizations must understand the critical nature of security in cross-departmental collaboration and alignment.

In the past, it may have been acceptable to plan for new technology implementations in a silo, but this is no longer the case. Without a thorough understanding of end user needs and workflows, it can be all too easy to increase complexity with the addition of new digital tools, which can quickly undermine employee productivity and customer experience.

Leaders must therefore establish open communication throughout the organization in order to have the information necessary to make improvements. If teams are not empowered to voice their needs and concerns, then the entire organization will eventually be negatively affected. In contrast, when leaders across departments are aligned and can seamlessly collaborate on strategies that take into account how the business operates as a whole, then successful transformation is much more likely.

Strategic alignment throughout an organization removes barriers to transformation. This alignment begins at the top with leaders who foster a culture of collaboration, partnership, growing skills, and teamwork. Organizations that are unable to adopt such a framework may soon be left behind.

Panel Questions:
