A Tale of Two CIOs

Live Webinar

When: Thursday September 29th, 2022

Time: 10 am PDT

Data Security is far from simple.

Adding people or resources doesn’t always solve the problem, neither does adding additional tools. With so many variables in play, how should organizations think about Modern Data Security – what it means, and what that means for organizational best practices.

Join Declan Morris (AWS) and Eric Johnson (Momentive) as they discuss the changing role of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) with relation to data security, privacy and compliance. Moderated by Meera Shankar (Okera), this webinar will cover everything from the role of IT within a company (communications, accountability, etc) to changing expectations around data access, visibility and management.
