Forrester Privacy & Security 2017

 

September 14-15, 2017
The Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Website: https://events.forrester.com/ps17

 

Driving Customer Loyalty and Business Growth With Trust

 

Privacy & Security 2017 will explore the rapid escalation of security, privacy, and risk from the operational back office to a strategic, enterprise-level imperative — and key driver of digital business and customer trust.

 

Your consumers’ expectations of privacy and trust now go far beyond such basic questions as “Will you protect my personal information?” They demand a seamless, consistent experience of safety, security, and data privacy. They require trust — and the smartest enterprises are increasingly committed to trust as a core component of their value proposition and brand.

 

Yet, this commitment to trust is happening at the same time that threats to data security are rapidly proliferating — in number, variety, scale and sophistication. Established security techniques and technologies are buckling under the assault.

 

In fact, Forrester predicts that a Fortune 1000 company will disappear in 2017 — through bankruptcy, acquisition, or regulatory enforcement — because of a cyberattack.

 

To WIN in this new era requires new approaches:

 

First, security and risk must move from the back office to the forefront of corporate strategy. Security, privacy, and risk are no longer about managing exposure to the downside, but are now critical drivers of business success, customer loyalty, and revenue growth.

 

Second, new technologies, teams, and techniques are required to defeat the growing threats to enterprise data and security, while simultaneously delivering frictionless customer experiences that inspire trust.

 

Forrester’s Privacy And Security 2017 is designed to bring security and IT professionals together with business and strategy leaders to collaboratively leverage security and trust for future growth in this challenging and volatile environment.

“Risk-Managed” Digital Transformation at Forrester Forum

An event series now in its second year, Forrester Research is hosting the Digital Transformation Forum in cities across the U.S., Europe and India. CISQ is a proud partner along with parent organization, The Object Management Group® (OMG®). This week (May 9-10) we’ve been at Digital Transformation in Chicago with 500+ attendees discussing multiple, important angles of the subject:

  • Creating customer-centric experiences through digital technology
  • Changing business models and operations
  • Discovering new growth opportunities
  • Supporting digital transformation through technology, culture, leadership, skills and processes

 

CISQ’s expertise in the digital transformation discussion is at the software level – specifically the IT systems and applications that are being built or modernized to enable these new capabilities. Digital systems (software) are powering the enterprise. Operational excellence is critical in terms of system performance, reliability, maintainability, and security (see CISQ’s Automated Quality Characteristic Measures).

 

Digital is all about the software that runs your business. What we’re hearing at the Forrester Digital Transformation Forum, and from our members, is that they are going to have to write a whole lot of new software for their digital business strategies, and will also have to transform a lot of existing software.

 

As these new software ecosystems come into being, the ability to measure and certify the non-functional characteristics of software risk is going to become more important. Digital requires business leaders to take charge, because digital transformation is really a business transformation. Yet, there’s still a deep disconnect between what technologists know about the company’s digital assets and what the business people understand. Having a standard lingua-franca to communicate the state of business software is turning out to be increasingly valuable for business stakeholders.

 

Stop by CISQ’s table at future Forrester events! We’re located near the Forrester product stations.

Hoy en día, la mayoría de las organizaciones están inmersas en un proceso de Transformación Digital con el objetivo de mejorar la experiencia de sus clientes y conseguir ser más competitivos aprovechando las posibilidades tecnológicas actuales.

 

Debido a estos procesos, la complejidad del software ha aumentado de forma exponencial en los últimos años. Esta complejidad, combinada con la necesidad de reducir el “time to market”, conlleva un aumento de riesgos y costes inherentes al software, sobre todo los relativos a la seguridad, robustez, eficiencia y mantenibilidad.

 

Nos complace invitarte al desayuno, organizado por CAST, con la participación de Richard Soley, Presidente y CEO de OMG; y Paul C. Bentz, Director de Programas para los Sectores Público y Privado de CISQ. Un grupo de CIOs innovadores debatirán sobre cómo gestionar los riesgos y costes relacionados con el software en este contexto de transformación.

 

Esta sesión, que será en castellano, está dirigida a Directores de TI, Líderes de Transformación Digital, Directores de Arquitectura, Directores de Desarrollo, Directores de Innovación.
