It's abundantly clear that the now of work means hybrid work is here to stay. This hybrid setting introduces tensions in how we operate. Executives, middle managers, and individual contributors cite frustration with their own virtual effectiveness.

We need to learn how to master the nuances of people management, strong strategic guidance is a must, and our processes and procedures made crisis-proof. In this talk, you’ll learn what organizations can do to bring clarity and cohesion to the organization, so everyone can be more effective in navigating our new normal.

Join Gregor Chroner, GTT’s Director Solutions Consulting to discuss why Zero Trust is a topic of interest and how it is an essential ingredient in the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) framework.

By assuming the worst, Zero Trust architecture minimizes the risk of compromise and limits the potential harm a compromise might cause.

Security teams are facing increasing challenges in protecting against the broadening threatscape, where major technology trends, from cloud adoption to shadow IT and remote working, have created new risks and vulnerabilities across every industry.

While most would jump at the chance to hire and retain security staff to provide round the clock protection, the IT security industry needs about three million more cybersecurity workers to handle growing threats.

This, combined with the proliferation of point security products, which can lead to integration challenges and siloed views, is significantly impacting security posture, leaving organizations lagging behind in their detection and response capabilities.

Join Denis Rak from Open Systems and a select group of IT security peers to discuss your own hiring and retention challenges, how you’re evolving your response to the changing attack surface and how to navigate the increase in point security products while unlocking the full potential of your existing Microsoft investments.

Join this Boardroom session where Jered Merkoff, CTO World Health Organization will be discussing 'Using Jamstack principles to improve geographic availability and reduce cloud spend'.

Salesforce's cloud-based platform has become the heart of the communication and data storage strategy in many companies.

As a result, a lot of valuable data is stored in Salesforce and therefore has become the new attack vector for cyber criminals. Salesforce itself does everything to optimally secure its own infrastructure, however it is down to organizations to protect the content that resides within the platform.

We will discuss how to define your Salesforce security strategy and approach, taking a deeper dive into:

  • The end-user’s role in the “shared responsibility model”.
  • How are threat actors targeting Salesforce cloud platforms?
  • Which risks and threats should you prioritize?
  • How do you know if security measures you currently have in place are sufficient if your Salesforce is compromised?

Data is an invaluable resource, but ultimately, it depends on what you do with it. Therefore, transition from gut feeling experience to data driven decisions is a must. Strong commitment to utilizing the data and insights that we gather to drive customer value enables companies to become market leaders.

However, this process should be thoroughly thought through and executed. Companies should consider the sequence of the “3 C’s rule”: connect, collect, and create!

It is crucial to keep in mind that technology is not a disruptor by itself, being non-customer centric damages many good businesses. Customers would like to enjoy intuitive and seamless experiences limiting their interaction with cumbersome complicated systems.

Our customer-centric supply chain traceability and transparency agenda is to create interfaces that would manage customer inventories, minimize losses, increase asset productivity, and enable exchange in an informed and sophisticated way.

With security threats on the rise, protection is no longer about just defending against occasional disasters. Go on the offensive with a proactive strategy to safeguarding your SaaS data.

Winning companies are moving faster when it comes to digital transformation, and more specifically transitioning from legacy application to SaaS. But with the ecosystem of applications that exists today, and the expectation that it will evolve further in the upcoming years, the path to SaaS-based applications is not easy.

Hear from our experts how other customers are making a successful transformation to web applications, where to start, and why it’s important.

We will cover:

  • Learnings from the field and best practices
  • Security
  • Cost benefits
  • Intelligent Monitoring

With new applications, comes new challenges, so join this boardroom session to learn how to start the transformation to application modernization. This will be an interactive session, so come and share your challenges, learn from your peers, and get an expert view from Citrix.

The financial services industry has experienced significant disruption and profit erosion over the past few decades. In markets where margins are shrinking and competition is intensifying beyond the traditional banking players, CIOs have been forced to face cost reductions and efficiency challenges.

To meet these challenges, it is imperative to move away from legacy systems and cascading hierarchical working structures. Clear direction, tight execution and cross-functional teams are needed to establish a new IT world of cloud-based stacks, digitised capabilities and agile ways of working.

This IT transformation has to be done in the face of an extremely challenging macroeconomic environment of volatility, pandemic, interest rates and inflation, etc., which jeopardises any plan and certainty of delivery.

After three years of IT transformation at Santander, and still in the middle of the journey, Santander Germany's Director of Technology Strategy, Daniel Sechi, will share leadership lessons learned and insights from the experience of executing the bank's transformation.
