It was awesome to host another CIO and CDO Sydney Lunch for Veritas. Our speaker Geoff Coley – CTO of Veritas opened up the discussions on the below.
Veritas Technologies is a global leader in data protection, availability, and insights. During interviews conducted by Veritas in 2020, 57% of Australian organisations revealed that data management and security measures have not kept pace with IT complexity.
On top of this, 71% of employees admitted to sharing sensitive and business-critical company data using instant messaging and business collaboration tools. Organisations risk compliance and protection disasters unless their data management practices catch up with the evolution of information sharing.
- In the space of just a few months, the COVID-19 crisis has brought about years of change in the way Australian organisations in all sectors do business.
- While accelerating their digital transformation plans, many are tackling the “new norm” – particularly the rise of the hybrid working model (necessitating more end-point user devices and greater remote access to data and applications).
- This is leading to a “transformation gap” where their digital acceleration is rapidly outpacing the evolution of their data management and security measures – opening them up to the risk of ransomware, spiralling costs, and compliance failures
- We will discuss how CIOs are tackling Costs, Cyber resiliency, Cloud, and Compliance – now – and in the next few years
