Opening Keynote Presentation – Today’s Toys, Tomorrow’s Tools – Securing IOT in the Enterprise

David Austin, Chief Information Officer, Six Flags
International Speaker from USA
We live in a time of unprecedented innovation and the number of IoT devices many of our employees have in their homes is exploding.  Those devices won’t stay home for long!   We are seeing a migration from the home to the office.  Many of these devices “today’s toys” will find a place in the enterprise.   The approach to onboarding these devices needs to be well thought out.  Building the process to bring these devices on the enterprise network requires changes in the way we have thought about provisioning, securing, and long-term management.
  • The proliferation of IoT devices in the enterprise
  • IoT can’t be stopped
  • Onboarding and securing IoT devices on the corporate network
  • Managing BYOD IoT – do we need to?

Panel Discussion – CISO and CIO Metrics for the Board

Information security has increased visibility with the corporate board of directors. When the CEO says the board wants to discuss the security strategy, will you be ready? Do you have a risk-based approach to security and how do you prioritize investments? What about your employee’s, are they part of the problem or part of the solution? Or both.

Business today needs to embrace innovative technology such as Enterprise of Things, cloud and enterprise mobility to remain competitive.

Roundtable – CIO Track- Innovation through Technology; Defining the IT Department’s New Role

Raj Khetia, Head of Managed Services, Brennan IT Organisations are under pressure to digitally transform or they risk being left behind by the competition. However, IT departments often do not have the control, influence or resources to be able to drive this transformation in a way that is both efficient and effective for their wider organisations. A recent insight survey that Brennan IT commissioned found that only 16% of IT professionals saw IT’s role as ‘Strategic’ and just 8% said that they were ‘Leaders’ of digital transformation. This is mainly because time and effort are being spent on:

  • Security & regulatory compliance - the risks of getting security wrong are growing.
  • Keeping up with the pace of technological change.
  • Delivering on the growing expectations of support from their organisations.
  • Ensuring that networks are fast, reliable and accessible - even at the edge.
With the majority of IT teams being made up of 3 people or less, it is understandable that finding the time to drive strategic change is a major challenge. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. This discussion will explore new IT management procedures such as self-service for staff, automation and next generation tools, which can free-up IT’s time to support the strategic goals that will drive their organisation’s success.

Keynote Speaker – Technology Leadership for the Future

Ross Dawson, Futurist, Keynote speaker and Strategy advisor, Advanced Human Technologies Group
Technological change is feeding on itself, with cloud economies of scale driving costs ever-lower, open platforms spawning new possibilities and now AI designing AI. Leaders need to clearly envision the potential future shape of business and enterprise technology to prepare effectively today. In a world of distributed value creation the most successful companies are becoming platforms, pushing technology management beyond organisational boundaries, raising pointed data and security issues. AI is not just reshaping the nature of work across organisations, but also optimising, automating and transforming every aspect of the IT function from threat detection to application development, with cognitive offloading supporting the shift of technology staff to higher-order expertise. Top IT departments will continuously evolve their structure, workforce, and practices to manage both core and rapidly emerging technologies. Leadership is at the heart of this transformation, engaging, educating and guiding boards, executive teams and staff to create the secure and highly successful organisations of the future.

Workshop – CIO – One Transformation – 3 Journeys

Frederic Ducros, Chief Transformation Officer, Air Asia In this session we will explore 3 journeys necessary for a deep and lasting transformation: 1. Transformation from a vision in one head, too many visions in many heads, to a shared vision in all heads - How exploring and confronting with reality and others views, through experiments and open spaces, may help refine and realise a strategy, especially when entering new spaces. 2. Transformation from the work of one hand to work in all hands - How getting the basics right, the way we run and approach processes, projects and products will help you get out of your own way, and drive real innovation and transformation. 3. Transformation in all hearts - How shifting from 'bringing change to people' to 'bringing change with people' then 'bringing change through people' will help you adopt a better role for Digital, IT and Transformation Office heads and teams.

Workshop – BP’s Digital Transformation Journey: Preparing Ourselves for the Next Generation

Kurt Bergmans, Head of Global IT Service Operations, BP PLC Our industry is changing faster than at any time in our lifetime. New digital business models are the principal reason why over half of the names of companies on the Fortune 500 have disappeared since the year 2000; and yet, we are only at the beginning of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”. Successful companies recognise the opportunity to do things differently. In this case study Kurt will share Vision 2020, which defines the identity, purpose and ambition of BP’s global IT organisation to modernise IT and be at the heart of BP’s Digital Transformation. We are currently on a journey to transform our processes, tools and most importantly our people to stay relevant and become more agile in an environment where change is constant and predictability a thing of the past.
