Plenary Session

11:55 AM - 12:25 PM The CMO/CIO Partnership: Why Marketers Need to Be Engaged in Cybersecurity

Today’s CMO holds an increasingly larger stake in the overall IT spend for many organizations. A CMO’s knowledge of the cybersecurity risks and how to navigate them is more critical than ever to succeed, especially as hackers become more sophisticated. A cyberattack doesn’t just cost a company its reputation; many customers lose trust and abandon ship when data is compromised or stolen. There are some fundamental security programs that a CMO must put in place to maximize security and protect both the brand and the consumer.
  • In today’s consumer-centric digital world, the CMO must keep up with the pace of quickly evolving technologies that present a staggering set of security issues
  • As business assets become increasingly digital, CMOs must ensure a proper digital asset security system is in place and well-governed
