This year’s Detroit CIO Executive Summit promises to be better than ever! This is the twelfth year of the event, and sports a group of speakers ranging from the CTO of Flagstar Bank to the Director of Information Security at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, to CIO of the State of Michigan.

What sessions are we excited about? Take a look:

Not Without My Signature - Assessing (and Reassessing) Every Vendor

Tonya Byers, Director, Information Security - Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan

When a member of Blue Cross Blue Shield found their sensitive data on the internet, it was embarassing, and it was the impetus that marked a turning point toward the organization’s increased investment in security. With sufficient funding in place, Tonya Byers went on to develop a CSO40 Award-winning vendor management program that includes thorough on-site assessments of vendor partners across the business. She’ll share best practices for assessing, contracting, and ensuring that data is as secure in vendor hands as it is in your own.

IT as a Service Broker

Thomas Roloff, COO & Global Lead, EMC Consulting

The business is demanding faster response times and greater flexibility when dealing with internal IT. With this demand comes the need for IT to transform from being responsive to business demands to truly adding differentiation to the business. New alternatives for obtaining IT services are pushing the adoption of IT as a service. Additionally, the need for IT to meet the demands of a highly mobile workforce, manage rapidly expanding data volumes, and ensure the value and security of multiple data sources outside the enterprise is changing the way IT roles are performed. In this session, Thomas Roloff will share how EMC is transforming their organization to embrace IT as a service broker.

The Detroit CIO Executive Summit will be on November 13th at the Adoba Hotel in Dearborn. For more information about the event, head to the Evanta Detroit Summit website page.
