FAIRCON22 - CISO Panel Discussion - Featured 3 copyOrganizations are undergoing profound change as they consider taking further advantage of digital transformation, moving critical business services to the cloud, and leveraging artificial intelligence to provide better products and services to their customers. They need to factor in the risks associated with those initiatives, and learn how to meet the new disclosure requirements from regulatory authorities that are supposed to keep them and their customers safe in the process.

How can businesses and government organizations achieve the right balance between maximizing the business potential of those initiatives, while keeping the business compliant and maintaining an acceptable level of risk? What risk management practices are needed to support the organization’s strategic business initiatives? These are the questions driving the agenda of the 2023 FAIR Conference (FAIRCON23).

The theme for FAIRCON23 is Embrace Digital | Managing Digital Transformation, Cloud, and AI Risk.
