CIOs have been asked by their executive partners for years to become “more strategic” and “find ways to add value” which translates to driving and leading cross-functional innovation within the enterprise. But innovation is not based solely on technology, even if technology is used in innovation. This session will focus on why CIOs are best fit to lead this type of innovation and how to foster and drive cross-functional innovation.

The evolving nature of security requires the models of security to embrace the change within the technology industry. In the enterprises of today and tomorrow, security professionals have to secure and audit a mix of hosted servers, BYOD systems and cloud based applications. Many individuals are tasked with securing systems. The details of putting the pieces together as well generating the reports and metrics to effectively monitor and assess security is often lacking. This talk analyzes the evolving strategy and tools that security leaders utilize at various prominent Silicon Valley/Bay Area companies to orchestrate as well as automate their security solutions. During this session, we will explore:

  • Utilizing security tools to protect against the most alarming threats
  • The dangers of counting on one single tool for protection
  • Approaching cybersecurity with a layered approach
  • Measuring the success of your cybersecurity stack
