RANT CISO Roundtable Dinner in London's secret Greek Masonic Temple. Lavish dining and discussion experiences for leading Information Security professionals.

RANT Roundtable Dinner sponsored by Fortinet

2nd April 2019
Registration closed

Overview

An extraordinary venue with an outstanding menu and unparalleled RANT Discussion:

Where should the CISO focus during digital transformation projects?

Join your peers to discuss the position of security as a USP when digitally transforming a business.  Let RANT indulge you with champagne, canapes, a delicious 3 course menu and cheese boards while sharing your valuable thoughts and experience with your peers and Fortinet, the leaders in Network Security. The Greek Masonic Temple was built in 1912 and is the Andaz best-kept secret. The century-old room was considered one of the grandest Masonic temples of its time, as its marble columns & splendid zodiac ceiling testify.

Discussion overview:

The term “digital transformation” is often thrown around the boardroom – and it’s not always clear exactly what it means. Digital transformation can mean one thing to one business and something totally different to another. Depending on a business’s objectives, it can mean anything from personalisation to rethinking an organisations’ business model.

In our experience, no CIO or CISO has ever said, “I need help with my digital transformation strategy”. It’s simply not how people think or act in the real world. People have business problems, and they want to look for the best solution to solve them. We might collectively term this digital transformation for convenience, but we should think more how we’re solving business problems, rather than foisting digital transformation solutions onto people. This perhaps goes some way to explaining why digital transformation is such a complex, variable concept.

That being said, the components of digital transformation are essential processes that can help to keep business competitive and driven by innovation. Many organisations have bought into the idea of using technology to overcome business challenges. For those that embarked on their digital transformation some time ago, the focus is no longer on using IT to transform their business. It’s now on implementing technology to make it even better. It’s time to start talking about a “Digital Evolution”.

Whatever point businesses are at with their digital transformation, security stands out as a common concern across all verticals. From securing autonomous vehicles and all manner of IoT devices, to 5G machine computing, the questions remain:

  • How do we secure new technologies transforming businesses and our everyday lives?
  • Should we aggregate security to the network rather than to each individual device?
  • Where in the network do we do that, at the edge or at the core?

Join Fortinet and RANT Events as we explore the answers to these questions.

Thanks for the invitation, it was a great evening with some very interesting discussions. The excellent venue lived up to its impressive image and the food was very good with a good mix of options. The discussion topic was very appropriate, but also the spread of sectors presented also showed that it is quite a transversal topic for our industry. The vendor's knowledge on the topic was very good and thought-provoking. I'd like to be invited to similar RANT events in the future. Really good event, I really enjoyed it and the mix of people.

Dan Harris – CISO, AXA

RANT Events are really fun, engaging and valuable events. Highly recommended to meet peers, discuss current affairs in cyber security and talk nonsense over beers.
