Protecting Your CEO: CIO Strategies to Balance Risk and Investment for Electronic Information

Mark Diamond, President & CEO, Contoural

You have heard the horror stories of companies that were not prepared for discovery and faced significant additional costs, sanctions or lost lawsuits due to their inability to locate and produce electronic documents. What would this mean to your CEO, you, your team if this were to happen?

 

How do you evaluate these risks you face and balance this with the proper level of investment for your company? What capabilities should you have to match your litigation and compliance profile, and what activities are out of scope under your risk profile?

 

Mark Diamond, a frequent CAMP IT speaker, will share the following in a thought provoking session:

  • The role of the CIO - How to protect your CEO
  • Best policies for retaining e-mail and ESI
  • How to prepare for and quickly respond to litigation
  • How to engage users and build a consensus on what to save across the organization

Making it through an economic downturn is very challenging. Organizations are forced to decrease costs, improve efficiencies and figure out how to drive new business. When business revenues decline, executives may make short term decisions just to keep the business afloat and put off planning for the future.

 

The organizations that emerge stronger from this downturn will have spent this time strengthening their market position, listening to customers and building competitive advantages. How can IT help lead the charge?

 

In this session attendees will learn strategies and tactics from a panel of CIOs that can be put to work immediately.

11:30am-12:30pm

CIOs and Innovation: How to be a Catalyst for Growth

Patricia Shafer, President, Compel Organizational Excellence Alliance

Since inception of the CIO role, the CIO’s span of influence and accountabilities have been changing and expanding – running the gamut from top technology manager to strategic business partner. Now what? As the global recession continues, where should a CIO focus on in 2010 and beyond? This highly-interactive presentation, incorporating questions to and comments from CIOs in the room, will make the case that all technology professionals (and CIOs, in particular) should commit to “crafting innovation opportunities”. Drawing on case studies and recent interviews with successful CIOs, this informative session will stimulate your thinking about how to be a catalyst - leveraging the technology function to imagine, initiate and integrate growth options into an organization’s strategies. Stressing that making innovation routine is foremost about connecting people to share problems, customer insights and knowledge, this session is a framework for reflecting on:

  • Do companies want IT to innovate?
  • What does and doesn’t constitute innovation?
  • Are the fundamentals of innovation replicable across IT environments (Does industry as well as company size and budget matter – or not?)
  • How do you develop and lead a culture of innovation?
  • Why should CIOs and aspiring CIOs bet their careers on innovation?

12:30pm - 1:30pm Luncheon

Vaselopulos

1:30pm-2:30pm

How to be Relevant in 2010: Selecting Technologies that are Business Enablers

Jim Vaselopulos, Vice President, PSC Group, LLC

With limited budgets, staff, and time, CIO's must be shrewd in selecting the right projects, methods and technologies. Irrespective of elegance or merit, technologies must be evaluated in the context of business value.

 

In this session attendees will learn:

  • An understanding of what the growth mechanisms are to your respective business
  • Best practices for clearly identifying business project needs and prioritization
  • How to work the CIO and IT enablement challenges
  • How to articulate the direct contribution in business terms to the board, the business units and IT
  • How to evangelize to the IT organization that their work on new technologies is an investment to the business and how they can develop that mindset
  • How to evaluate a list of emerging technologies and their importance to the business

and other enterprise IT CIOs

IT Leadership responsibilities are shifting to a more "Value Added" role within the enterprise, where expectations are to be both visionary and pragmatic, to inspire the organization as well as broaden the business impact of IT. However, as IT leaders, we often do things to directly undermine our ability to deliver on our full potential.

Are you managing IT across the enterprise or aligning IT with enterprise objectives? Are you further carving out your current role, or growing and enabling the next layer of leadership?   

In this session attendees will get an opportunity to see their work through a new lens. A panel of CIOs will discuss how they, as leaders, have been navigating the waters of their changing organizations in this changing world and what they've learned to set themselves up for success.

Content that will be covered includes:

  • Aligning IT objectives with enterprise objectives 
  • Shifting decision-making to where it belongs
  • Rethinking your service to the organization
  • Redefining control through the lens of meaningful metrics
  • Reviewing your role as mentor and growing those around you 
  • Assessing your view or risk management within the organization

To secure the future of the profession, the CIO role has to become much more focused on business strategy and innovation.

In this session attendees will learn the following from a panel of seasoned CIOs:

  • How to change the mindset/culture of the IT organization
  • How to ask the right questions of other IT executives
  • How to get out of siloed IT leadership
  • How to articulate in business terms the value IT is providing
  • Where they feel the CIO role will migrate towards
