Leading Digital Transformation: Your Time Is Now

The role of today’s CIO is no small task: one part futurist, one part business strategist, and always a credible practitioner. In this defining moment, the lines of business are making cases to embark on technology-based initiatives with promises of awe-inspiring pay-offs, relegating many CIOs to the confines of IT infrastructure, enterprise apps, and support services. The time is now for CIOs to decide to become indispensable as co-creators of the core business strategy and value proposition. The new class of CIO is business leader first and information officer second. The critical skill is finding the shortest line between technology and the organization’s strategy. Digitization holds the key. Disruption is the CIO’s new best friend, presenting opportunities to take the lead in demonstrating how digital transformation can drive business performance. Your time is now. Will you define digital leadership in your organization, or will it define you?

Protecting Data – How IT Organizations are Taking the Lead
Data more important than ever – to governments, to businesses, and to individuals. The sheer volume of data boggles the mind. Annual global IP traffic will pass the zettabyte threshold by the end of this year, and due to IOT, a full two-thirds of all IP traffic will originate from non-PC devices by 2019. All that data presents a tremendous opportunity. The opportunity is complicated by both complexity and uncertainty. What should you protect? How do you secure it? How do you comply with the changing laws around the world? This interactive session will provide an overview of Cisco’s data protection program and will pair it with IT use cases. We will be asking participants to share similar experiences and have an open dialogue around specific elements of our data protection framework. IT organizations play a key role in keeping data protected within the enterprise. Participants will walk away with an understanding of what Cisco IT is doing to protect data and how that translates to their IT organizations.

Cloud Security
Cloud computing has reached a tipping point as many organizations have either adopted, or are planning to adopt, some form of cloud computing technology – whether IT knows and manages it or not. “Speed to capability” is one of the primary reasons that individuals, business units and departments are using cloud technology and service providers with increasing frequency. Yet, despite the rapidly increasing use of cloud services, many IT executives remain hesitant to endorse a “cloud-first” approach due to security and control concerns. In this session, we will explore Cisco’s approach to addressing Cloud Security both as a consumer and provider of cloud services.
