The flagship technology conference for CIO’s has gone virtual

The CIO Association of Canada’s Annual Conference, the CIO Peer Forum, is a vibrant community event for attendees and the profession. We recognize the essential role of the CIO Peer Forum is now more important than ever. We need to bring our IT community together to share the latest trends, provide opportunities for thought leaders to learn about innovations, and be able to network with colleagues in their areas of expertise.

Connect with CIOCAN members and expert speakers from across the country as we share data, insights and best practices as companies shift and pivot to meet new challenges.

Join us in April 2021 for a Virtual CIO Peer Forum hosted by the Vancouver Chapter of the Association.

Even bigger than 2020!

Agenda

Taking Care of Business – Don’t Waste a Crisis!

Business is going through a time of unprecedented economic challenge, disruption, and cybersecurity threats.  Only the strongest and most nimble will survive.  IT industry professionals will be called on as never before to help organizations re-think and re-tool their business for the future – but potentially with smaller teams, smaller budgets, and larger expectations than ever before.  Are you ready to pivot your organization to success?

Whether a crisis is based on a pandemic, flood, forest fire, data breach or unplanned leadership change, any

or all of these can affect the market presence of the firms we represent, their employees, customers, our profitability and ultimately, the future of the enterprise.

The main theme is supported by these 3 sub-themes which will be addressed throughout the conference and breakout sessions.

Fostering Resiliency

Practical insights to help organizations thrive in adversity

IT Security, Privacy and Data Governance

Positioning IT Security as Board priority to mitigate enterprise risk

Career and Team Growth

Leading a remote, hybrid workforce amid changing business outcomes
