Virtual Roundtable: The CIO's Evolving Cybersecurity Imperatives

On November 3, 2021, The IT Media Group will host a CIO virtual roundtable, “The CIO's Evolving Cybersecurity Imperatives.”

Organizations accelerated digitization efforts and implemented hybrid work environments to adjust to rapidly evolving employee and customer expectations. These shifts added complexity and exposed vulnerabilities, which attackers quickly exploited with increasingly sophisticated attacks.

To protect themselves from breaches, enterprises need to find the right threat signals in a sea of data. As a result, CIOs must enhance their organization’s security capabilities by making operations effective at detecting and remediating attacks.

Companies entrust their CIOs to protect their data and technology assets from cyber threats. Unfortunately, the speed at which these threats change and the complexity required to mitigate risks pose significant challenges for resource-constrained IT departments and their security providers.

This roundtable will focus on the evolving cybersecurity threat landscape and approaches CIOs implement to improve cyber-resiliency. It will help IT executives baseline their experience with their peers and validate their concerns and successes across industries. In addition, participants will be encouraged to share practical use-cases for solving their challenges.

The roundtable will explore challenges, approaches, and best practices for the following areas:

1. Protecting the extended enterprise

  • Security challenges of hybrid work
  • Tactics to secure the expanded environment

2. Addressing the rise of ransomware

  • Real impacts of ransomware
  • The ransomware defence roadmap

3. Mitigating the human factor

  • How attackers exploit human psychology
  • Limiting employee impacts

4. Improving security effectiveness

  • Merging data science with cybersecurity
  • Cybersecurity roadmap essentials
