CIO & CISO D.C. & Public Sector Summit Recap

Thank you for attending CDM Media’s CIO & CISO D.C. and CIO & CISO Public Sector Summits last week in Washington, D.C. It was a rare experience that brought together technology leaders from corporate, federal government, state and county government, as well as education. Sticking to the theme – digital transformation is a journey, not a destination – it is suffice to say, our attendees made excellent progress last week. We are confident that each attendee was able to walk away from the summits with 2-3 helpful ideas on how to better embrace digital technologies to improve your company or organization. In addition, we are also confident that the attendees left with 2-3 new connections within their peer-to-peer community in efforts to collaborate until we all meet again.

It is difficult to summarize the myriad discussions, presentations and meetings, but if there is a summary it would be this :

  • Digital technologies are driving changes in both the expectations and habits of employees and customers.
  • Companies and organizations are needing to transform how they operate to meet these new expectations and habits.
  • Data is truly the fuel for the journeys we are on.
  • However, this data is under an increasing attack and we need to secure it through remediation, vulnerability assessments, threat intelligence and deception techniques.
  • We need to increase our speed and agility as organizations.
  • We also need to hone our communication skills to be the best story tellers within our companies or organizations such that we are driving digital transformation instead of sitting in the back seat.
