How Leaders Can Support Women in IT

Christie Struckman, VP Analyst, Gartner

Gender imbalance is stagnating if not getting worse in many IT organizations. The challenge is not just hiring more women, it’s also not losing them.

Roundtable: Drowning Out the Noise - Avoiding Compliance-Driven Security Agendas

Richard Addiscott, Sr Director Analyst, Gartner

Niall Prendeville, Leadership Partner, Gartner

Across the Australian and State government regulatory landscape, organisations are being directed to implement, and in some cases, comply with ASD’s Essential 8 in pursuit of a more resilient and secure digital landscape across government. Consequently we have seen an increase in requests from Commonwealth and State government SRM leaders seeking advice on how to shape and influence the discussion at senior levels about what to, and how to, implement the Essential 8 inside their organisations. This is a key challenge for Australian Government security leaders that needs addressing in a pragmatic, politically-sensitive way given the volume of noise about the Essential 8 from senior stakeholders. To add to the complexity, the road to full implementation of the Essential 8 is not an easy path, and nor should it be considered the cybersecurity panacea it gets marketed as. Join this interactive roundtable session with your Government peers to discuss strategies for ensuring government organisations are able to deliver high-performing security capabilities and at the same time meet their State or Commonwealth cybersecurity obligations.

Guest Keynote: Intentional Leadership: Leading To Win in Challenging Times

Carla Harris, Vice Chairman, Managing Director and Senior Client Advisor, Morgan Stanley

In past decades, particularly in “producer cultures” professionals were given positions of leadership and authority because they were great “producers”. The top trader, the banker that posted the most revenues or the lawyer that had the most billable hours were compensated with money, an elevated title and positions of leadership without much thought as to whether the person was the kind of individual that could motivate and inspire others to perform beyond their own expectations. Yet, today, we find ourselves in an environment where a growing majority of the professional workforce are Millennials and Generation Zers and they demand motivation and inspiration as table stakes for their performance in any environment. So the question is, “what does it take to be an outstanding leader in today’s environment?”. Carla Harris asserts that if anyone chooses to take on the leadership seat, then one must be INTENTIONAL about 8 things in order to be a powerful, impactful, influential leader in today’s environment. Hear her make the case for: Authenticity, Building Trust, Clarity, Creating other Leaders, Diversity, Innovation, Inclusivity, and Voice as essential components of being a Powerful Leader today.

Guest Keynote: Intentional Leadership: Leading To Win in Challenging Times

Carla Harris, Vice Chairman, Managing Director and Senior Client Advisor, Morgan Stanley

In past decades, particularly in “producer cultures” professionals were given positions of leadership and authority because they were great “producers”. The top trader, the banker that posted the most revenues or the lawyer that had the most billable hours were compensated with money, an elevated title and positions of leadership without much thought as to whether the person was the kind of individual that could motivate and inspire others to perform beyond their own expectations. Yet, today, we find ourselves in an environment where a growing majority of the professional workforce are Millennials and Generation Zers and they demand motivation and inspiration as table stakes for their performance in any environment. So the question is, “what does it take to be an outstanding leader in today’s environment?”. Carla Harris asserts that if anyone chooses to take on the leadership seat, then one must be INTENTIONAL about 8 things in order to be a powerful, impactful, influential leader in today’s environment. Hear her make the case for: Authenticity, Building Trust, Clarity, Creating other Leaders, Diversity, Innovation, Inclusivity, and Voice as essential components of being a Powerful Leader today.

Michael Kelley, Sr Director Analyst, Gartner

As a security framework, all elements of CARTA can be applied to any technology. For access management, this includes concepts like continuous authentication and continuous authorization, applying dynamic (always being evaluated) approaches to access management. In this approach, adaptive and contextual authentication, as well as leveraging session management as a control plane, and UEBA as for visibility, will allow a near-real-time response to a variety of AM issues, including credential theft, session hijacking and others.
