CIO/CISO Philadelphia Summit Recap

April 24, 2018 — Le Meridien Philadelphia, PA

While the overall theme of our Philadelphia CIO and CISO Summits was “Digital Transformation is a Journey, Not a Destination”, a sub theme was the value of the CISO’s input.

CISOs and security executives continually are labeled as the “Chief of No”. They have a reputation from the other teams in their organization as barriers to digital transformation because of security threats. Instead of being “Chief of No”, they want to be “Chief of let’s find a secure solution”. In addition, we discussed how digital transformation requires speed and agility. Speed requires Trust. Trust requires us to engage not only boards and other senior leaders, but also those who will be implementing the key projects that comprise the digital transformation journey. Engaging requires us to be great story tellers of WHY – “Why we need to do what needs to be done.”

Thanks to all our speakers:
