Why Read This Report

Next-generation CIOs and their teams face the challenge of fulfilling consumer expectations and the demands of digital natives while still meeting appropriate budgetary, governance, and performance criteria. Technology management leaders no longer operate in isolation; rather, they execute the strategy that they create jointly with business heads, acting as both guide and facilitator to harness the power of enterprise disruption. As a principal member of the technology leadership team and an incipient trusted advisor, the CISO needs to deliver a framework and exhibit a bias for forward thinking to empower business leadership while maintaining a firm grasp of the security realities of the digital business ecosystem.
