With the explosion of social, mobile, big-data, cloud-computing and the Internet of Things, digital technologies are disrupting the world of work. The status quo of the CIO is under siege as end-users explore and implement their own approaches to providing digital services for their stakeholders. This new era of Digital is also changing the way organizations manage information privacy and security. The CIO panel will share their experiences during this time of change and discuss where they see their portfolios evolving in this Digital-First world and address questions like:

  • Does your institution have a Digital Strategy?
  • What has been your approach to Digital?
  • What are the impacts Digital is having on your institution’s privacy and security program?
