To survive and succeed in the age of information, organizations need to adapt security and privacy platforms

Responsibilities of the CIO
In my view today’s CIOs should be strategic assets to the organization. Sometimes, the CIO may move into a Chief Innovation Officer or Chief Digital Officer role to advance the company’s digital strategy. Progressive CIOs and those with an agile and growth mindset are leaving the traditional CIO roles for these new opportunities where they can shape the future of their companies, design new products and define new business models.

 

Key priorities for 2021
Doing digital often means asking questions and coming up with a limited answer. Moreover, being digital means that you understand there are often more answers that any one human can provide. In my view, I firmly believe that being digital is the key to our future. The role of the CIO/CTO is even more integral as enterprises shift from tackling digital transformation projects to living in a fully digital society. A mindset shift is required from a CIO/CTO in a digital society. There are multiple changes that the leadership must adapt to and evolve with to meet the business demands. Push through organizational resistance by selling senior leaders on the benefits of collaborating around digital business. To survive and succeed in the age of information, organizations need to adapt faster than ever before and they need security and privacy platforms that can protect at the speed of business.

 

Adopting Work-From Anywhere
Covid-19 compels organizations en masse to adopt remote working through VPN and meeting with Google Meet. This seems, at first sight, to be quite successful, but there are also many signals that productivity and work-life balance are coming under pressure. It will only be real success if organizations start tackling remote working structurally. It is not advised to take a wait-and-see approach, because after the corona crises, remote working will become the new normal.

 

Redesigning IT & Security strategy
In my view organizations must have emerging technologies policies and make sure it should apply in terms of awareness of the employees.
IT security strategy as below:

 

●  Know what you need to protect         ●  Take a data-centric approach         ●  Consider a cloud access security broker
●  Develop a clear understanding of cloud service models and security issues.
