Virtual Roundtable By CIO (Sept. 14th)
Monday, September 14th, 2020
Apply to attend today.

"In this virtual roundtable we'll discuss how today's organizations strive to innovate more quickly, reduce downtime, and collaborate more efficiently. The key to turbocharging an enterprise rests on three key principles: how effectively you employ search, how well you understand logging and metrics, and how well you secure your resources. When all three of these IT processes operate at maximum capacity, you can deliver more value with less effort to both employees and customers, whether you operate in an environment that's B2C, B2B - or both.

Join CIO contributing editor, Charles Pelton and subject matter experts from our partner, Elastic, for a private, interactive, one-hour, virtual roundtable on the topic of innovation and new approaches to search, resource visibility, and security.

Securing Hybrid Enterprise Infrastructures Across a Distributed Workplace (Sept. 15th)
Tuesday, September 15th, 2020: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
online

Join Lane Cooper, Contributing editor of CSO.com, experts from Thales and security leaders from around the country for an interactive virtual roundtable discussion on the strategies that will effectively secure hybrid infrastructure across today's hyper-distributed workplace.

We'll address how while the overwhelming majority of business transformation and technology modernization initiatives are focused on moving significant workloads to cloud infrastructures and platforms, most organizations will continue to operate a combination of data centers, private-cloud and public-cloud resources for the foreseeable future.

This heterogeneous environment introduces a high level of complexity and risk, which helps explain why - despite overall reductions in IT budgets - 62% of organizations are expected to increase cybersecurity spending in 2020, while another 36% will keep cybersecurity budgets flat. The key question, however, revolves around whether the investments being made today are aligned with the realities of today's threat landscape.

Join us and see the difference: a professionally moderated conversation that's valuable, on point and full of the answers you've been seeking. Apply to attend today.

Reduce the Costs And Risks Associated With IT Modernization Projects (Sept. 24th)
Thursday, September 24th, 2020
Apply to attend today.

During this virtual roundtable, we'll discuss how even though a key component of any digital transformation strategy is improving the customer experience, only 72% of enterprise executives believe that access to data is a major bottleneck to a modern customer experience. To remove this data bottleneck, enterprises must leverage modern data management practices enabling the synchronization of data across systems and clouds.

Join us as we discuss these topics and more:

  • DataOps Methodology
  • The benefits of synchronizing data across systems to test applications that orchestrate customer workflow
  • Creating agility for core application updates with on-demand data
  • How to streamline the CI/CD pipeline to release features faster
  • Securing data to share with teams inside and outside your organization

The CIO virtual roundtable experience, in partnership with Delphix, delivers:

  • A live video meeting led by Ken Piddington, CIO Contributing Editor.
  • An intimate, gathering of senior IT leaders, from diverse industries, all grappling with similar issues.
  • A secure, private conversation open only to a carefully vetted group (no recording, no playback).

Wednesday, September 30th, 2020: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM

To maintain operations in fast-paced business environments, technology and security leaders must build trust across the C-suite and create a common vision and purpose.

Managing Insider Risk in the Remote Era (Oct 1st)
Thursday, October 1st, 2020: 12:00 PM to 100 PM
online

In this virtual roundtable we'll discuss how insider risk has always been an issue that businesses have had to address. But the new work model, with users scattered to the winds, is exposing organizations to greater risks originating from their users driven by the current work dynamic. While every business should have an insider risk program in place, 2020 is showing us why it's important to push insider risk up the list of priorities.

Many are realizing that with a vastly distributed workforce, users can pose a significantly elevated risk to the business. While those risks often arise in response to users just trying to get their jobs done, we're seeing concerted and sophisticated efforts, across many industries, to compromise those users.

Hosted by CSO and Code42

(CS)2AI ONLINE: Control System Security Incident Handling in the Fog of War
Thursday, September 24th, 2020: 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
online

Control Systems are fundamental to the smooth functioning of huge areas of developed nations. Most are intended to operate with extremely little downtime and optimally none that isn't planned for. Incidents do occur from many sources, and impacts can range from simple interruption of service to significant financial impact or even loss of life. Cyber security incidents have complications beyond their immediate impact, requiring forensic research and analysis not only to determine root causes but to ensure removal of threat actors' accesses and influences to prevent further incidents.

Questions addressed will include:

  • Who should lead OT cyber security incident handling efforts?
  • How does cyber security incident handling in Operational Tech differ from IT?
  • What are some best practices to prepare for effective incident response?
  • When should internal teams call on outside resources for help?

Everyone here spoke sign language
Wednesday, September 16th, 2020: 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
online

In one of the most amazing examples of inclusion in American history, an abled majority learned to sign to accommodate a deaf minority. From the 1600s to the 1950s when it died out, Martha's Vineyard sign language was a second language that everyone in town used in everyday situations. It was also a precursor to American Sign Language (ASL)

What were the factors that led to this utopia? How did signing become an integral part of life, something that everyone knew as a life skill, like fishing or planting crops?
