CIOs today have tremendous potential to play more vital roles as business leaders, but where should they focus first? How do they strike the right balance between fiduciary responsibilities and innovation leadership? In this dynamic brainstorming session inspired by recent research from our CIO Executive Council, our experienced panel of IT leaders will explore some of the key competencies and attributes that can transform pure-play technology officers into corporate business leaders. In alternating segments of panel discussion, in-depth table conversations and audience feedback, everyone will have a chance to exchange ideas and contribute their thoughts on the future of the CIO as corporate officer.

Jason Kuhn, Print Security Technical Consultant Manager, HP Inc.

While you invest time, resources and millions of dollars in protecting endpoints and network perimeter, are you addressing one of the largest footprints on your network?  While printers and other endpoints may not be front-of-mind as primary security threats, this infrastructure may be allowing hackers and malware to take the easy route to your network and data.  Join us for this session where we’ll share examples of breaches and how some of the most secure organizations are still lagging in overall security for critical endpoints like printers. We’ll also share best practices on how to most-effectively secure these critical endpoints.

What does the changing nature of work mean for the systems that companies give their employees? That question is top-of-mind for ADP's Stuart Sackman, whose combination role encompasses CIO duties plus leadership of global research and development for one of the largest human capital management solutions companies in the world. What work means and how it gets done is changing. CIOs have to be more aligned with product teams to create tighter linkages between how technology is delivered to end consumers and how it's operated across the business.In this forward-looking session, Stuart will talk about the way automation and machine learning are already reshaping the future of work. He'll also share some real-world examples from ADP’s Innovation Labs.

He will discuss how he has been successful in transforming disparate data across the globe to one optimized source, empowering people to look for relevant and validated information. Then we’ll break into groups for a challenge exercise. This workshop will challenge you to think about how traditional, linear data management does not work anymore.

While a rising number of business leaders see CIOs as strategic advisors, 73% of CIOs are struggling to strike the right balance between business innovation and operational excellence in today’s fast-evolving digital business ecosystem. That is where technology providers can lean in and help out, says CIO Publisher Adam Dennison. In this lively, informative discussion, Adam will share key findings from our 2018 State of the CIO research on what’s trending in cybersecurity and risk management, IT-business collaboration, tech spending and customer centricity as he engages his industry expert panelists on their best practices with enterprise customers.

3:45 pm - 4:45 pmCIO-CSO Panel: Building a Cyber Security "Shock Absorber" for the Enterprise
Don Aliberti, IT Security Head / CISO, Nomura Holdings America
Ben Cabrera, VP and CIO, Covanta
Mignona Cote, Global Head of Identity and Access Management, AIG
Rob Juncker, Senior Vice President, Research and Development, Code42
Moderator: Maryfran Johnson, Executive Director of CIO Programs, CIO Events and the CIO Executive Council
Day-in-day-out security is a core competency that businesses of all sizes today must master. Those basics of blocking and tackling -- including responding to the daily assault of PII data breaches – are now table stakes in a larger game being redefined by regulatory requirements like GDPR privacy compliance, shared risks within your digital business ecosystem and encroachments by adversarial nation-states. But beyond that, businesses in 2018 need to focus on building resiliency into their operations -- the kind of resiliency that allows an enterprise to take a hit and bounce back. Those business disruptions that can shut you down for weeks pose the greatest dangers to your company’s future. In this candid and practical session, we’ll hear from CIOs and CISOs about how they stay on top of the “table stakes” while at the same time building-in the right shock absorbers to keep the business moving forward.
