Creating Your Career Path
Talent is everywhere. There’s isn’t only one school, only one major, only one first jobthat results in prodigious success. We’ll provide a frank discussion on the variety of avenues that have lead and can lead to the highest heights of information technology, straight from the mouths of its executive leaders.
Scaling Your Skills in an Evolving World
Technology is constantly changing, requiring everyone – from the intern to the executive – to continue to update their skills in order to best take advantage of new innovations. Of course, it’s a large task balancing the leadership responsibilities of a CIO with the necessities of developing new and more advanced skills. How do you create that balance? How do you manage that time?
Fast Forward: The Internet of Things
Eventually, everything in our lives – from shirts to cities – will be “smart.” How will we confront the challenges and grasp the opportunities of a world where every product is connected to the cloud, to each other? Information officers will be at the forefront of the effort to develop ecosystems that can capture the business benefits of an omnipresent web.
Bulletproof: Developing Cybersecurity vs Future Threats
The Chief Information Officer is often responsible for aligning security initiatives with enterprise programs and business objectives to ensure information assets and technologies are adequately protected across their entire organization. This heavy task involves digesting network security, ethics policies, technological risk management, customer concerns, employee needs, the company brand and a dozen other factors. What are the approaches being taken to confront the many operational and strategic issues concerning cybersecurity?
Building Tomorrow's Team
Today’s CIO must be able to construct an IT team that can face the future, whatever it holds, as certain skills become more valued and others become obsolete entirely. This requires leaders to be able to balance their team’s practical tech skills with their general creative ability, along with each individual’s passion to learn. Moreover, the team’s disparate parts must properly align not only with one another, but with the overall culture of the organization. Our panel will discuss the many ways forward.
