As technology blurs the lines between functions, responsibilities, and departments, leaders need a clear vision for digital transformation. Digital is no longer just about integrating ‘emerging technologies’ into the organization; it also spans business strategy, innovation, the workforce and corporate culture. This CEO fireside discussion provides a perspective of a leader who has changed the game and going beyond convention to assure success.

Spotlight: Live Enterprise in Action

As large incumbent organizations embark on their digital transformation journeys, the opportunity to transform into agile, responsive entities at enterprise scale, is a compelling one.

In other words, become a Live Enterprise with reimaged processes, experience and the ecosystem altogether, while also being sustainable. The Infosys Live Enterprise Suite promises to do this and more by driving organization wide agility, deliver customer delight and enhance ecosystem value.

The Future of Cyber Security from a friendly Hacker’s Perspective

Every organization, every device we use and every network we log onto today, is vulnerable to the feared community of hackers. This talk brings to the fore powerful hacktivists, digital robin hoods, that work solely to make these organizations, individuals and network owners aware of their vulnerabilities. By exposing vulnerabilities, they push the globally connected network space to become stronger and healthier, wielding their power to create a better world.

CISO Fireside Chat: New Posture for Cybersecurity in a Real-time World

Digitization has massively expanded the scope of security strategy and operations. The stand-alone point solutions-approach is inadequate to protect against evolving threats and an expanding attack surface. CISOs must find ways to manage more than ‘reactive security’ and drive ‘holistic resilience.’ The need is to embed security into the fabric of the enterprise, while building resilience and scale into security programs. This discussion will take a hard, unflinching look at reality, and show us how to overhaul cyber-risk management.
