8:45 am - 9:30 amOpening Keynote: Meeting the Challenges of Secure Mobility at the U.S. Dept. of Defense
Teri Takai, CIO, US Department of Defense
With a user base of 3 million people and an annual information technology budget of $38 billion, the sheer size and scope of the U.S. Dept. of Defense’s IT responsibilities is staggering enough. But then factor in a highly mobile, globally deployed workforce that needs constant, secure access to computing power from anywhere, and you get a sense of the challenges CIO Teri Takai faces in bringing consumer devices into this uniquely complex environment. In this revealing look inside the DOD’s evolving mobile strategy, Teri will talk about the pilot programs and user education efforts under way. She’ll also discuss the DOD’s top tech initiatives, which span a broad range of technologies supporting our military operations, protecting the nation against advancing cybersecurity threats, and modernizing the IT infrastructure.
9:30 am - 10:15 amBringing the CEO Perspective to the CIO Role
Mike Skinner, CEO of Brokerage Operations & CIO, Eurpac Service Inc.
As a marketing and distribution company serving the families of America's military, Eurpac Services delivers consumer products through a global supply chain that runs the gamut from large urban settings to small remote outposts. For Mike Skinner, a 19-year company veteran, the CIO role calls for a tight focus on business intelligence, retail space allocation and global supply chain management. But in the past year he took on the CEO role for Eurpac's brokerage operations, as well. In this compelling account of how he balances a unique dual role, Mike will talk about how he steers the company direction to add value for suppliers and customers alike, and how the CIO role has prepared him for the challenges ahead.

10:45 am - 11:15 amSocial Media and IT Consumerization in the Enterprise: Meeting Demand and Minimizing Risk
Stephen J. Gold, SVP & CIO, Avaya
Until recently, enterprise IT leaders have been cautiously adopting social media tools and consumer technologies, but in a piecemeal approach that has created disparate, siloed processes and inefficiencies. There are also concerns about wide-scale corporate adoption due to worries about security risks, architecture provisioning, “BYOD” (Bring Your Own Device) requirements and unrealistic user expectations. Yet the potential business benefits of IT consumerization can improve the customer experience, boost user productivity and collaboration, and drive revenue growth. In this session, you’ll hear from Avaya’s CIO Steve Gold about how IT and telecom leaders can conquer the challenges of social and consumer technology adoption in the enterprise.

Sharon Solomon, CIO, MedImmune
Steph Warren, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary, Department of Veterans Affairs
Moderator: Rick Pastore, VP of Editorial Programs, CIO Executive Council
In order for IT to become a business influencer and game changer, the technology organization must transcend its “service provider” relationship with stakeholders and become a trusted business peer and partner. The task of guiding that relationship journey falls to the CIO and the senior IT leadership team. In this combination panel discussion and hands-on workshop session run by our CIO Executive Council, you'll take a short quiz to assess your own IT group's relationship with business leaders. Then with your own assessment in hand, you'll hear directly from a panel of Washington DC area IT leaders about their own challenges, roadblocks and successes. Finally, the audience will take over the discussion in small groups to explore the panel’s ideas and identify further best practices.
12:30 pm - 1:45 pmLunch

1:45 pm - 2:30 pmAdvancing Cybersecurity Protections at the U.S. Dept. of Commerce
Simon Szykman, CIO, US Department of Commerce

Finding ways to help American businesses innovate and compete is the core mission of the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, which encompasses 12 different agencies responsible for everything from census-taking, economic development and international trade practices to patent protection and weather forecasts. The $2.5 billion spent on IT across those dozen agencies is locally controlled, however, leaving CIO Simon Szykman with the challenging job of convincing a federated organization to get its cyber-security act together. "If you don't have the direct control in your hands, it all comes down to communication, collaboration and relationship building," he says. In this talk, Simon will detail the department-wide progress made in recent years in battling security threats that grow more sophisticated by the day.

Moderator: Julia King, Executive Editor, Events and National Correspondent, Computerworld

An increasingly mobile workforce, a surging influx of consumer devices at work and the rapid rise of collaboration and social media tools are having a huge impact how business is conducted in both the private and public sectors. While these trends present  tremendous challenges for CIOs in data security, customer privacy and legacy integration, there is an undeniably strong tide of user demand to use the devices and tools of their choosing. How do you manage risk while modifying or even giving up traditional IT controls? How do you maintain a good partnership with other business units or departments when you really have to say "No?" In this engaging panel discussion with prominent Washington-area IT leaders and experts, you’ll hear how organizations are turning these tensions into opportunities to leverage the "new normal" of our hyper-connected world.

4:00 pm - 4:45 pmClosing Keynote: Leadership Lessons from a CIO Book Club
Jerry Hermes, CIO, Navy Federal Credit Union
When CIO Jerry Hermes joined the Navy Federal Credit Union in 2009, he wanted to shift the perspective of his senior IT team from managing people to leading them. “I needed to find common ground to get the group to work together, trust each other and share some leadership experience,” he says. So the Management Book Club was born, meeting on an (almost) weekly basis to discuss ideas drawn from top business books and industry publications. In this inspiring closing keynote, Jerry will detail the team-building benefits of this friendly, time-tested exchange and how it created a common leadership language throughout his IT ranks.
