IDC CISO SUMMIT 2018 – POST EVENT

The event saw IDC's CISO community gathering in the beautiful Portuguese town Sintra for an intensive two-day summit, with two goals:

  • Shattering the perception that security only serves to slow down the business
  • Clarifying how security leaders can better express security terms in language the business understands to support better decision-making.

The event provided a great opportunity to measure the pulse of the European CISO community, providing indications regarding their relative maturity, top concerns, aspirations, and so on. The summit also provided CISOs with an opportunity to share best practices and experiences around achieving operational excellence and ensuring digital trust.

Two clear themes emerged to answer both challenges framed by IDC in its 2018 European CISO Summit. The first of these was the primacy of risk management as a means by which CISOs can not only express security terms in a medium that the board can understand, but also build the security function's board-level influence.

A series of parallel workshops characterized the rest of the event, focusing on some of the leading business priorities that are shaping CISOs' agendas, such as digital trust, artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and some of the key technology accelerators behind digital transformation such as cloud, and edge computing.

Key Themes

Together with industry analysts, CISO delegates will explore and seek to answer the following key challenges and surface new ideas about IT and cybersecurity driven by analytics, government involvement, and security integrations occurring throughout the digital transformation processes.

  • Accelerating DX — Technology-centric transformation altering business and society
  • Human versus machine — The impact of AI and automation
  • Global volatility — Political, social, and economic disturbance
  • Sense, compute, actuate — The new data-centric paradigm
  • Cyberthreats — Theft, ransom, and cyberattack on the rise
  • Empowering the material world — Revolutionized processes expand technology reach
  • Platform disruption — Unleashing digital innovation's power for scale
