Case Studies in Digital Transformation: Learnings Along the Journey

We will explore key learnings from various industries and verticals on the good, the bad and the ugly of digital transformation. We will have an opportunity to not only be exposed to successful use cases, but also ask the hard questions behind those successes. 

Takeaways:  

  1. One of the best ways to learn is to hear the stories of success (and failure) from companies similar to yours 
  2. Asking questions of HOW the journey unfolded are just as important as the end result

The Cognitive Enterprise

Organisations are facing an unprecedented convergence of technological, social, and regulatory forces. The 'outside-in' digital transformation of the past decade is giving way to the 'inside-out' potential of data exploited with exponential technologies. 

As organisations are responding, IBM believes they move towards a next-generation business model - The Cognitive Enterprise. So, what does that look like? 

A Cognitive Enterprise is a company that uses artificial intelligence and distributed technologies such as IoT, Blockchain, Automation, 5G to power and disrupt the markets of the future. It would also comprise multiple business platforms - constructs to drive competitive edge through data, workflows and expertise - to drive differentiating client experience. Finally, for all of its' technical sophistication, it would have a culture of keeping human factors front and centre.

Think Tank

Customer Experience - The Only Strategy That Matters!

As the complexity of teams, technology and business grow, customer experience becomes just an add-on to a product or service rather than the main driving force for the organizations. Most successful companies exhibit customer centricity at the core as a common and most significant pattern to success. Building a strong focus on customer experience is the key to driving key business metrics and reducing both customer and employee churn rate.

Takeaways:

  1. Understand the importance and impact of customer experience.
  2. How to transform your IT organization to be more customer centric.
  3. How to ensure that technical and business decisions are informed by customer needs and goals

Thought Leadership

Mobile-centric Zero Trust Security Framework

Traditional security models designed on the premise of organizations having a well-defined IT perimeter no longer apply in the perimeter-less world. Passwords based security, which assumed that users operated and accessed business information only form within the enterprise IT perimeter were adequate in the past. But in today's IT environment, where users are accessing information from a variety of untrusted devices, apps, networks, locations, and services - passwords alone are no longer sufficient. It should be no surprise that passwords are still the number 1 cause of data breaches. According to the Verizon Data Breaches Investigations report - 81% of breaches involved weak or stolen passwords. This is because passwords are easily compromised.  

In the reality of today's security world how does an organization protect itself? With a Zero Trust approach and framework to security. Zero trust assumes that bad actors are already in the network and secure access is determined by an 'always verify, never trust' approach. Zero trust approach requires that you verify the device, user, apps, networks, and presence of threats before granting access. In addition, you should have on-going enforcement. But with many theories about Zero trust how do you ensure you've taken the right approach. 

Takeaways: 

CIOs and CISOs face three big challenges: 

  • Drive business innovation with mobile productivity by giving employees the ability to use mobile, cloud, and endpoints. 
  • Enforce corporate security without impacting the user experience. 
  • Redefine enterprise security strategies to address a perimeter-less environment.

Thought Leadership

Can Technology Alone Prevent Phishing Attacks & Breaches?

In a world where we are talking about trusting self-driving cars, will we totally trust self "threat assessing and action taking" cybersecurity systems? Is technology enough? What is the human role in both preventing and responding to attacks?

Takeaways:

  1. Employees continue to be one of the leading, if not the leading, entry point for security breaches
  2. Training about cyber-attack approaches such as Phishing is important but using technology can help employees more consistently identify outside forces attempting to harm your company

The Revitalizing Change in the Role of the CXO

A CXO's role, goals and objectives have drastically changed over the years as most CXOs supervise teams and units beyond their IT's security. Because of these changes in responsibilities, a CXO's success is measured in greater business metrics. As a result, the role of a CXO has become both more attractive and more demanding.

Takeaways:

  1. What are the significant changes regarding the role of the CXO
  2. How to keep up with the changing requirements
  3. How to properly measure a CXO's success

Learn How to Achieve a Secure Cloud Transformation

Today employees are accessing SaaS applications from any device, anywhere in the world. However, these applications are not directly accessed. Traffic from user devices (remote workers and offices) is backhauled via a central chokepoint to enforce security controls. As more SaaS applications are developed to increase employee efficiency, the traditional network architecture must change! So how should you re-think your cloud network security approach? 

Discover how a Secure Cloud Transformation enables direct global access to the Internet while upgrading your security.

Fostering Innovation Among a Dispersed Workforce

The key to growing a business is innovation; innovation helps you identify business opportunities, motivate employees, and improve the customer experience.  

But, while technology has helped foster innovation in businesses, it has also decentralised it. In fact, according to McKinsey technology has allowed organisations to: 

"Parcel out more work to specialists, free agents, and talent networks.Top talent for a range of activities - from finance to marketing and IT to operations - can be found anywhere. The best person for a task may be a free agent in India or an employee of a small company in Italy, rather than someone who works for your business."

Now, the challenge for decision makers is not how to enable employees to work collaboratively across different territories, but how to allow 'dispersed teams' of freelancers, contractors, external partners and internal employees to work together on projects, without compromising compliance/security/internal innovation.

I'm Going to the Cloud, Come and Get Me!

Security in the era of the public cloud breaks established practices for securing infrastructures and applications. The growing digitalization is driving a need for new compute and application architectures. Decentralized services and complexity of applications combined with their reliance on internal and external APIs require new and disruptive approaches to architecting security. 

The HIDS, NIDS, and flow collectors from the on-premises do not adapt well to cloud-based environments. Native cloud applications build from containerized microservices providing dynamic scale and end-to-end encrypted service meshes create new challenges for legacy application security solutions. 

As attackers get more automated, more organizations are becoming a target. The growing sophistication of attacks results in breached defenses too often. There is an urgent need for increased defensive capabilities of applications and APIs against targeted and automated attacks, driven by behavior analytics and machine learning algorithms enriched with real-time threat intelligence.

Boundless Perimeters and The Evolution of Cybersecurity Protection

In this session, Alex will discuss how digital transformation has turned the traditional view of cybersecurity protection on its head. Threats and breaches continue to rise, adversaries continue to innovate, and modern cybersecurity approaches require a combination of prevention, proactive monitoring and response. Alex will share primary research and real customer case examples to explore the latest cyberattack trends, and what businesses can do to better protect and defend themselves against evolving threats. eSentire is the world's leading provider of Managed Detection and Response (MDR).

What's the Next Stop On the Transformation Journey?

Our Governing Board will summarize the learnings from the day and discuss the path forward for building an ongoing community of CISOs where common issues can be addressed and success stories can be shared.

Takeaways:

  1. Building an ongoing community with your peers can be an invaluable resource for tackling the digital transformation projects ahead of you
  2. Sharing stories of success (and failures) is not reserved to a one-day CISO Summit, but should be shared on a regular basis with your peers
