    What Challenges Will CIOs Face In The Future?

    The increasing pace of technological change means that CIOs must face new challenges: the changing nature of work, growth of smart devices and increased cybersecurity threats. Here’s a preview of the discussions we’ll have on May 24:    

    What will the future of work look like? In past decades, technology has replaced many routine tasks with automation. Now AI and robotics are enabling computers to do more complex work that was previously the sole domain of humans. Join George Westerman, Principal Research Scientist, MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy, for the panel discussion Preparing for the Future of Work. 
    It is just a matter of time before you experience the inevitable—"we got hacked." To prepare for this day, what are the best practices and methods, and how can you ensure business continuity after a breach occurs? Join Keri Pearlson, Executive Director, MIT (IC)3, for the panel discussion You Were Hacked—Now What?

    Are you ready to capture your share of the IoT business market, estimated to be as high as 10T? What drives IoT opportunities, what capabilities are required, and what investments are needed to succeed? Join Barbara Haley Wixom, Principal Research Scientist, MIT Sloan Center for Information Systems, for the panel discussion Winning with the Internet of Things.

    2017 Program is Available   

    The 2017 Symposium will help you navigate through your hazardous and exciting CIO adventure.
