CIOs and cyberattacks – partnering with the business to communicate risk and recover fast

22 February 2024, Munich 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm CEST
In partnership

Dinner Location: Charles Hotel

Good evening…

And welcome to this Meet the Boss event in partnership with Hitachi Vantara.

Recovering from an existential business crisis is a team sport, and CIOs must ensure that stakeholders are fully engaged and educated on the potential impact of disruption, to contribute towards fast recovery and business continuity. But with the alarming rate at which threats are evolving, how can CIOs ensure they are in lock step with the business to create executive awareness, manage appropriate levels of risk and prepare the business to rebound and recover quickly, with the right investments?

Join Hitachi Vantara, and the Meet the Boss team to discuss fostering a proper mindset and culture, building awareness across your entire ecosystem, and defining roles, responsibilities, workflows & messaging for the new normal of cyber-attacks.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and providing you with the right discussions to keep you on course, every course.

Bon Appetit!
