IT - CxO Events

Join Bob Bragdon, SVP/Managing Director Worldwide, CSO and Jeff Baher, Head of Product Marketing and Shashi Prakash, CTO/co-founder from Bolster, for a private, interactive, virtual roundtable focused on auto-takedowns - a mechanism entailing sub-second fraud and scam detection combined with a fully-automated takedown process all in less than 3 minutes

Security teams continue to wrestle with a range of external threats affecting customers, employees and supply chains. From classic phishing attacks, to business email compromise, the threat landscape is broad and fast moving. The sites sourcing the attacks need to be taken down, and fast. But how?

For many security teams it's a thorny, persistent problem: how do you find these malicious sites, and how do you go about taking them down for good, without sapping time from your team.

The IT organization used to function as a service provider to the lines of business. Increasingly, however, the business is taking the initiative to develop its own applications and workflows

That doesn't absolve IT of two core guardian and support functions: to help the business in increasingly on-prem / cloud hybrid environments and to provide proper agile app dev governance with solid DevSecOps methodologies. The challenge becomes: finding the best way to 'modernize' your organization's approach to application development.

On June 14, join CIO contributing editor Charles Pelton and subject-matter experts from our sponsors, Insight Enterprises, for a one-hour discussion: The Future of Application Development: Hybrid Platforms, LOB Involved, DevSecOps Guardrails.

CIO's Future of Cloud and Digital Infrastructure Summit (June 15-17)
Tuesday, June 15th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM Thursday June 17th
Meet leaders from across industries whose experience isn't found anywhere else.

As organizations shift more customer experience applications and code to clouds, they're also leveraging them to automate operations and innovate at the edge. According to IDC, 75% of enterprises recognize the benefits of as-a-service consumption, thereby tripling the demand for on-premise infrastructure delivered by flexible, as-a-service solutions. And unlike any time before, the world's appetite for cloud-enabled business transformation continues to accelerate.

CIO, the world's leading source of information on business, technology and leadership, presents a summit for chief information officers and data officers. Join us and experience three days of interactive content, valuable conversation with peers, solution providers, and leading CIOs to understand how they're aligning their organizations' cloud strategies to business priorities and opportunities. You'll learn how ubiquitous cloud strategies aren't just an aspiration, and ways they can grow your business while improving efficiency across business operations.

Join us to network with IT executives and learn how to deliver secure application environments to all employees, regardless of location or device, as the workplace model continues to evolve

We'll discuss how while businesses are still trying to map-out what their new work models will look like, they face significant technological hurdles in delivering secured work environments. Those challenges are complicated by what is likely to be a workforce operating in a myriad of diverse environments, with many transiting from office to home to travel.

However you decide to structure the new workplace, your workforce will continue to demand greater consistency in the delivery of their digital workspaces - regardless of how, or from where they are accessing them. To meet escalating productivity demands, while at the same time defending your organization's digital assets, many are turning to SASE delivery models and a Zero Trust approach to security.

Join us for this roundtable discussion with CSO's Contributing Editor, Bob Bragdon, along with Kurt Roemer, Chief Security Strategist at Citrix, as we collectively share experiences and leading practices for addressing these challenges across your organization.

Industries such as healthcare, financial services, telecom and manufacturing as well as business functions (supply chain, finance, HR) are examples of document-intensive domains that generate piles of hard-to-handle unstructured records, making it difficult for organizations to achieve operational excellence and streamline business processes. Document types in these industries represent different use cases that require a tailored approach to achieve seamless automation at scale. These documents include invoices, contracts, purchase orders, insurance claims, patient records, and medical images with handwritten clinical notes.
