IT security is a battleground where technical skills are essential -- but these alone aren't enough.  As Chief Security Officers know, human behavior is very likely the greatest exposure any company has. Today's corporate CSO must understand security technology sufficiently to be able to effectively communicate, educate and motivate change behaviors at all levels of the workforce (including senior management) behaviors. Learn policies, best practices, and strategies for mapping organizational risk and communicating effectively from C-suite to line employee.

The game has changed. The IoE, Big Data and Analytics, Streaming Content, Interactivity, Mobility -- these "3d Platform" trends now define the evolving role for the Chief Marketing Officer. In this new world order the role of CMO is increasingly intertwined with the enterprise CIO/CTO. The impact on "full-stack" IT/Networks and Critical Environment infrastructure is profound. Colocation and cloud data center capacity and service providers are well aware of this. Data center workloads are quickly shifting from traditional processing to being more applications-oriented, time-to-market agile and hyperscale. Low-latency/high-speed networks are the new normal. And corporate growth becomes increasingly Internet-facing and data-driven. As the "Digital CMO" rises, what new requirements are placed on IT and data center infrastructure and operations? How does the shift to Cloud Services and DevOps impact traditional IT services delivery? What lessons are we learning?
