BFSI IT & Security Leaders Content Week Agenda

Digital transformation can deliver a sustainable competitive edge for organizations across the banking, financial services and insurance industries.  CIOs are often left to address: “How are we going to pay for this?” with ongoing operations and enhancements consuming 80%-90% of a typical IT budget. Hear how technology leaders from financial sectors are evolving strategies to reallocate capital & resources to drive digital growth – all while improving security controls and meeting audit standards. Join us to learn how leading companies in your industry are rethinking IT cost components and budget tradeoffs – and ultimately reducing operational drag.  Learn how they’ve evolved to improve IT service delivery, while freeing up critical funds to enable digital innovation initiatives, such as moving to hybrid cloud or multi-cloud environments, enhancing online and offline customer experiences, implementing AI and ML capabilities, etc.

As BFSI organizations improve the maturity of their DevSecOps transformations, senior executives are beginning to question how the people, process, culture and technology changes made during transformation are adding value to their organizations. With a streamlined organization and delivery process in place, why is it still so difficult to compete with leaner, smaller startups who seem able to deliver innovative, new products at the drop of a hat? What is the long-term value of the transformation investment made so far, and how recent changes help address the future demands of their organization?

In this pro-active session Julian Fish, Director of Products and Head of Value at Micro Focus will discuss:

  • Why industry analysts are positioning Value Stream approaches as the next wave of IT innovation

  • How senior executives can identify and prioritize high value deliverables despite the pressures introduced by Digital Transformation

  • What a shift to Value Stream based approaches means for organizations looking to gain competitive advantage from their DevSecOps transformations

Join this interactive roundtable to discuss the key objectives for CIOs and CISOs looking to filter out the noise surrounding Value Stream Management innovation, and stay on track with solid, secure and compliant IT and digital strategies.

Automation is a powerful asset to any company — unfortunately, automation is also a powerful tool that cybercriminals leverage to attack their targets. Threat actors can use it to control the distribution and communication of malware, provide commands, and initiate future phases of an attack — such as deploying additional malware.

During our time, Levi Gundert, VP of Global Intelligence will share perspective on threat intelligence and automation, and how even the smallest of organizations can take small steps to get more out of their existing security posture and stay one step ahead of the adversary. The session will challenge assumptions and discuss what is “success” when it comes to implementing threat intelligence and what true “actionable” intelligence is.

Finding a proper balance between classic IT governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) and modernization initiatives is a difficult process for most large organizations. Classic organizational risk policy profiles are often redundant, misaligned, or – in many cases – outdated. Join John Willis, Senior Director, Global Transformation, Red Hat and co-author of The DevOps Handbook and Anne Dalton, Transformation Principal, Red Hat, for an informative discussion on automated governance and patterns, practices, and opportunities. This session should be useful to anyone working on DevOps, DevSecOps, or risk initiatives.

John Willis, Sr. Director of the Global Transformation Office, Red Hat

Financial institutions have been adopting hybrid cloud infrastructure to realize a number of benefits, including reduction of downtime, seamless disaster recovery, and increased staff’s ability to operate “anytime, anywhere, and always secure”.  To fully reap these benefits, operations and support teams need to be able to seamlessly work across cloud platforms to automatically identify support, security, and compliance gaps.

Many of the support issues that arise can be easily detected and corrected with automated remediation. By creating a framework for self-healing automation, organizations can operate more efficiently, reduce support ticket costs, improve MTTR (mean time to remediation), and increase self-service reliability.

During this roundtable discussion, the hosts will share real-world examples of institutions that have implemented a self-healing model, learn about the benefits they are realizing, and see a live demonstration of the architecture in action. Attendees will have an opportunity to discuss:

  • How to create a self-healing infrastructure through an expandable technology stack
  • How to use self-healing to automatically identify support, security, and compliance gaps.
  • How to reduce outsourced spending for support issues dramatically
