The CIO Exchange
Collaborate. Innovate. Optimize.

The CIO Exchange is back in Silicon Valley this May convening a peer community of C-suite technology executives to examine the common goals and challenges facing the digital agenda. Bloomberg journalists will gather the leading minds in tech to examine how CIOs are deploying collaborate strategies in order to speed innovation, break down silos, and optimize growth. Additionally, a wave of data breaches and revelations brought by Cambridge Analytica as well as legislation like GDPR, have brought privacy and data to the forefront. We’ll also explore how Senior IT decision-makers can address the privacy and security concerns at the heart of the matter to create better ethical frameworks and further unite security structures.

This event will lead up to the third annual CIO Exchange this fall, which returns to Nasdaq in New York for another highly informative day of programming, geared specifically towards c-suite tech leadership, across industries.

Balancing Privacy Concerns while Thwarting Security Risks

From customers to clients, people worldwide are increasingly worried their most valued data may be exploited for financial and political gain. A wave of data breaches and revelations brought by Cambridge Analytica as well as legislation like GDPR, have brought privacy to the forefront for consumers and policymakers alike. The potential for backlash against Silicon Valley is only expected to rise. How can today’s senior technology leaders spur meaningful discussions on digital ethics & frameworks — while regaining trust? While credibility is certainly a critical component, privacy and security are at the heart of the matter. We will address how CIOs and CSOs can work better in tandem, and for CIOs specifically, to have a bigger impact in driving and enforcing security structures. At the end of day, it’s all about ensuring private business data remains private.



5:30 pm

Collaboration to Speed Innovation

Whether it’s new collaborative technologies that improve growth, process and workflow, or cultural collaboration to bridge senior relationships and break down silos, today’s senior IT leaders have much to consider to deliver results in a fast-paced world. What can CIOs do to help IT teams obtain a singular view of ‘truth’ and work more collaboratively to drive innovation? How can AI and automation drive efficiencies, helping tech executives move faster? Does outside collaboration with high-potential startups make sense —or, is innovation best led from the inside? We’ll hear first-hand accounts from C-suite leaders on how they drive rapid innovation via collaborative strategies.



6:10 pm
