The future of the CISO role is relationship focused and business aligned. Historically, the role has been setup as either a dead end or a scapegoat. However, with growing awareness of the concerns around security and privacy as well as the skills gap within the industry, the role will need to evolve. Providing your organization with strategic advantage that is business aligned is of critical importance. The most successful CISOs will have identified and mastered a relationship focused mindset as vital to their ability to be an effective leader in the information security space. While it is possible to maintain the status quo and survive, be encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to develop in the current environment and solidify your position as a trusted advisor who fully understands the business they are charged with protecting and promoting.

While operations, deployment, and quality are key focus areas of DevOps, continuous improvement of application performance and reliability once deployment is done can fall into a lower priority. That’s where a Site Reliability Engineering team can provide a critical set of eyes and hands to focus on improvement after deployment.

If we’ve learned anything in the past year, it’s that the term “insider threat” brings on new meaning when employees go remote. And even though the vast majority of these threats are unintentional, and a result of lack of due diligence versus malice, they are threats none the less and must be addressed. How do we address, educate and plan to expect the unexpected in our employees’ home workplace environments? In this session I’ll answer this fundamental question, specifically addressing:• Considerations for all connected at home devices, from desktop printers to listening devices like Alexa and how to protect against related threats.• Educating employees on the differences between at home and corporate networks and what they need to do, on a regular basis, to ensure connections are secure. • Tips for ensuring employees are accountable and following security protocols. I’ll also share tips from rolling out remote work for Ricoh USA, Inc. employees along with considerations for managing hybrid and agile workplaces where some employees remain remote and others are in the office.
World is on the cusp of the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0. It is quite different than the prior three Industrial Revolutions —steam & water power, assembly lines, and computerization, as it will challenge the enterprises on not only their business operations but also on how efficiently they adapt to the evolving human behaviors. This revolution is expected to impact all industries, disciplines, economies and ultimately societies. In this new era of revolution, only those enterprises or people will survive and thrive who will adapt to Industry 4.0 by correctly adopting the Digital Transformation strategies and the technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, IOT, Cloud, Digital Twin, Augmented Reality, etc.

I believe everyone can become a problem solver and the more problem solvers on your team, the fewer problems you have, this presentation will introduce tools and methods to improve problem solving.
What is “IT”? It’s not simply Information Technology. It is everything. How can you transform one part of the enterprise and not others? Do we stop with the supply chain?
