The world of IT is continually evolving, advancing, and changing at an increasing pace. Every day it seems there is a new IT development that has potentially important implications on companies’ business strategy—cost savings, operational improvements, solving business problems, etc. With these opportunities come potential challenges—reputational risks, compliance issues, security risks, to name a few.
Few boards have an IT expert in their make-up. Many directors are retired and not living and breathing the constant technological changes occurring in the business place. Others have primary jobs in different industries using different technologies. Yet as board members they are all responsible for oversight of risks to the company arising from emerging technologies. How do directors ensure that they have a grasp on emerging technologies and the risks that come with them?
This half-day, intensive program will bring participants up to speed on the range of IT opportunities and risks that should be on their radar. Corporate Board Member will bring together respected advisers and service providers with deep knowledge in the area to engage attendees in an insightful discussion that will allow them to better leverage emerging technologies and make more informed strategic decisions for their boards.
