In 2016, our Manitoba businesses have witnessed a significant rise in the frequency and severity of cyber attacks in many forms and from many attack vectors. These evolving IT security challenges are fast becoming one of the top threats to the competitiveness of our businesses. Our role as IT Leaders includes educating our key stakeholders on these threats and securing the resources needed to effectively protect our business thereby enabling realization of business goals and objectives. We must also collaborate to foster innovation and a stronger security posture. We have our work cut out for us in 2017!
The CyberCIO2017 conference, brought to you by the CIO Association of Canada, brings together thought-leaders, experts and strategic decision makers from government and industry to provide valuable insights and guidance aimed at helping our IT Leaders face the business challenges from cyber threats.
Hear from a seasoned, high ranking NSA security veteran on what is really happening on the world stage of cyber trends and developments. Be part of the conversation forming the foundation of a major advocacy report being prepared by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce that will be circulated to 20,000 businesses across the country. Engage in an expert security panel discussion, moderated by a local radio host, covering valuable topics including ‘How to talk security with the Board’ and ‘IT Security & Your Brand’.
With breakfast, coffee breaks and lunch included, the CyberCIO2017 conference is a great networking opportunity that will allow you to forge useful ties with other Manitoba IT Leaders facing similar challenges and able to share successes and best practices. Please join the conversation and register for this valuable learning and networking event!
