Keynote Panel

Creating an Enterprise-Wide Data-Driven Culture

How is your data working for your organisation? Have you truly unlocked the power of data driven decisions in your department and company? Our panel of data experts will address how to take a more scientific approach when you are dealing with data - not just seeing dashboards, but diving into how it can work to break down silos in your organisation and enact needed change. This involves overcoming legacy processes and teams that are resistant to change to look at data and analytics from a different lens. From there, getting the business to understand the value and importance of data across divisions and gaining much needed alignment between data, technology, and security teams to push your organisation forward in 2022 and beyond.

Thought Leadership

Establishing a Modern Data Governance Framework

Data governance practices and disciplines have been inherent in a number of organisations for many years, but the evolving regulatory landscape (particularly with the onset of GDPR) has compelled organisations to scrutinise and optimise how they store, manage and process data and create a roadmap of activity. Organisations are seeking an overarching approach to data governance to manage the people, processes and technologies involved in data initiatives in a more modern way.

Executive Boardroom

Optimisation of Data in a Complex Programme Space

Major programmes are increasingly crucial to get right first time, given the importance of using scare resources, supplementing conventional components and methods with new and sustainable ones, taking a responsible approach to funding and financing capital, managing the complex mesh of data, systems and partners, evidencing social and environmental value?and of course delivering a major asset that actually achieves its intended, long term outcomes. It's clear that an integrated, consistent and real-time view of data flows across this complex landscape is now a pre-requisite for success. Interface and integration management has to be designed in (technically and contractually), digitally powered and underpinned by behaviours that promote a shared goal. We shall explore how we can best architect, set-up, manage, optimise and of course secure data across complex programmes. 


Executive Boardroom

We often hear a lot about the challenges of data, analytics, AI and driving real value from these efforts. It's also good to understand what's working well. This session will provide an opportunity to look positively at use cases that have proved successful, and share learnings from different firms & industries.

Think Tank

Addressing the Technology Skills Gap: Reskilling and Upskilling

In the digital age, technology teams are only as successful as their skills are relevant. Companies are under pressure to become more agile, protect against rising security threats, and continuously deliver innovations to the market. This begs the question - how do you keep up with the constant pace of change in technology? 

Join this session to hear how leaders must see technology skills as a strategic and essential part of successful digital transformation, as well as how they can gain the clarity they need to lead, and the skills they need to move faster.

Think Tank

Attracting, Recruiting and Retaining the Right Talent

Both the CDO themselves and their wider data team need to have the right blend of blend business, IT and data science skills in order to maximise the benefits of data and analytics and align them with strategic business goals. On the data team side, quality data scientists and engineers are very difficult to come by, meaning that it can be difficult to attract the right people to really understand the technical side of data. It is also important to balance this with the right business skills to define and implement the overall data strategy.

Think Tank

Artificial Intelligence in Cybersecurity - Dream vs. Reality

Opportunities for use of AI appear to be limitless. The claims go from a promise that automated security protection will make the job of security professionals much easier up to the extreme that the (artificially) intelligent systems can entirely replace humans. But what realistically can we expect from AI? The answer to this question is especially important in the context of cybersecurity. Overestimating capabilities of the AI enabled cybersecurity systems could provide a false sense of security. Underestimating the value of the AI systems, on the other hand, would leave us with inefficient cybersecurity protection. In both cases our systems would be vulnerable to the attacks of those that use sophisticated AI techniques and tools.

The Dos and Don'ts of Recovering Active Directory from a Scorched Earth Disaster

In the age of cloud, dependency on Active Directory is rapidly growing - and so is the attack surface. The threat to AD from ransomware and wiper attacks is generally understood, but the complexity of forest recovery is not. In "the good old days", AD recovery meant recovering AD from natural disasters and operational errors. But cyberattacks changed all that. Today, it's quite likely that every domain controller (DC) will be encrypted or completely wiped out in a matter of minutes. 

So, what to do you when a cyber-attack wipes out your DCs? Microsoft provides a lengthy technical guide that details the manual-intensive process required to recover an AD forest. There's no indication if you do something wrong until the end, at which point you have to start over. Third-party backup tools can automate the process, but they were only built to address recovery from IT operational issues, where AD is affected but host servers are not. 

With AD becoming a prime target for widespread, business-crippling attacks, it's time to think "cyber-first". In this session, you'll learn the dos and don'ts of recovering AD from a cyber disaster. 

  • Recover AD even if domain controllers are infected or wiped
  • Restore AD to alternate hardware (virtual or physical)
  • Eliminate reinfection of malware from system state backups
  • Automate the entire recovery process and reduce downtime

Making Data Driven a Reality - How we Plan to Embed a Data Culture in our Organisation)

On the face of it, being data driven is something you'd be mad not to aspire to.  Particularly when we hear about the amazing results data-driven organisations like Amazon and Google deliver.  So how do we translate that in a professional services firm? 

Our paper will explore what Data Driven means to an organisation like KPMG and how crucial it is to tie this to concrete outcomes. We will explain some of the challenges we have faced on our journey so far, the progress we have made, and what we are going to focus on in the next 2-3 years.

Understanding Cyberattack Risk in Your Organization: Time to Re-evaluate the Fundamentals?

  • How can organizations ensure that budget spent on security solutions are in fact reducing the company's overall risk profile? 
  • Has your company made any structural changes to the organization to ensure that IT leaders who manage identity and access control are contributing to discussions with executives about managing the risk of cyberattacks? 
  • Given that many cyberattacks start by exploiting vulnerabilities in IT systems, how has your company pivoted to ensure that foundational security practices are closing some of the most common gaps?

Why Organizational Resilience Depends on an Integrated Security Architecture to Reduce Risk

The risk extends beyond the perimeter and requires extending your protections against external, insider, and 3rd party threats. It's not just your perimeter that is at risk, it's your customers, your supply chain, your staff, and your business reputation that could be easily tarnished with just one breach.
