“Risk-Managed” Digital Transformation at Forrester Forum

An event series now in its second year, Forrester Research is hosting the Digital Transformation Forum in cities across the U.S., Europe and India. CISQ is a proud partner along with parent organization, The Object Management Group® (OMG®). This week (May 9-10) we’ve been at Digital Transformation in Chicago with 500+ attendees discussing multiple, important angles of the subject:

  • Creating customer-centric experiences through digital technology
  • Changing business models and operations
  • Discovering new growth opportunities
  • Supporting digital transformation through technology, culture, leadership, skills and processes

 

CISQ’s expertise in the digital transformation discussion is at the software level – specifically the IT systems and applications that are being built or modernized to enable these new capabilities. Digital systems (software) are powering the enterprise. Operational excellence is critical in terms of system performance, reliability, maintainability, and security (see CISQ’s Automated Quality Characteristic Measures).

 

Digital is all about the software that runs your business. What we’re hearing at the Forrester Digital Transformation Forum, and from our members, is that they are going to have to write a whole lot of new software for their digital business strategies, and will also have to transform a lot of existing software.

 

As these new software ecosystems come into being, the ability to measure and certify the non-functional characteristics of software risk is going to become more important. Digital requires business leaders to take charge, because digital transformation is really a business transformation. Yet, there’s still a deep disconnect between what technologists know about the company’s digital assets and what the business people understand. Having a standard lingua-franca to communicate the state of business software is turning out to be increasingly valuable for business stakeholders.

 

Stop by CISQ’s table at future Forrester events! We’re located near the Forrester product stations.

Si solicita alguna aclaración, no dude en contactar con nosotros: eventos@castsoftware.com

 

Hoy en día, la mayoría de las organizaciones están inmersas en un proceso de Transformación Digital con el objetivo de mejorar la experiencia de sus clientes y conseguir ser más competitivos aprovechando las posibilidades tecnológicas actuales.

 

Debido a estos procesos, la complejidad del software ha aumentado de forma exponencial en los últimos años. Esta complejidad, combinada con la necesidad de reducir el “time to market”, conlleva un aumento de riesgos y costes inherentes al software, sobre todo los relativos a la seguridad, robustez, eficiencia y mantenibilidad.

 

Nos complace invitarte al desayuno, organizado por CAST, con la participación de Richard Soley, Presidente y CEO de OMG; y Paul C. Bentz, Director de Programas para los Sectores Público y Privado de CISQ. Un grupo de CIOs innovadores debatirán sobre cómo gestionar los riesgos y costes relacionados con el software en este contexto de transformación.

 

Esta sesión, que será en castellano, está dirigida a Directores de TI, Líderes de Transformación Digital, Directores de Arquitectura, Directores de Desarrollo, Directores de Innovación.

Speakers from DOD, DHS, U.S. Marines and Other Federal Agencies Confirmed to Present at DC Cyber Resilience Summit in March

Summit Theme is Securing Systems inside the Perimeter

 

Needham, MA – February 27, 2017 – The Consortium for IT Software Quality™ (CISQ™), an IT industry leadership group that submits standards for measuring software quality and size, today announced its return to Washington, D.C. as host of its sixth Cyber Resilience Summit, which will take place on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Reston Town Center in Reston, Virginia. The Summit will bring federal government agencies, industry leaders and security experts together to cover critical software security and cyber resilience issues. Registration is open to the public and costs $95 USD. Government admission is complimentary using the code CSQVA27. Media should use the code TCVAP17 for complimentary registration.

 

CISQ is hosting this event in cooperation with the Object Management Group® and the IT Acquisition Advisory Council.

 

“The theme of this spring’s event is Securing Systems inside the Perimeter because securing the network is NOT enough. The most damaging of system failures and security breaches are caused by vulnerabilities lurking inside the network,” said event host Dr. Bill Curtis, CISQ Executive Director. Dr. Curtis will demonstrate the role that cyber resilience standards play in reducing risk and how they can help meet objectives for acquiring, developing and sustaining secure and reliable software-intensive systems.

 

“With the new Trump administration pressing to secure and modernize legacy systems, this is the seminal event to learn how,” said John Weiler, program chair from the IT Acquisition Advisory Council.

 

Dr. Dale Meyerrose, Major General, U.S. Air Force retired, will deliver the keynote “Software Defined Everything.” Dr. Meyerrose is the first President appointed, Senate-confirmed chief information officer and information sharing executive for the U.S. intelligence community.

 

Making its third appearance at the Summit is the Titans of Cyber panel, featuring the following experts who will share their front-line experiences and insights managing cyber risk:

  • Don Davidson, Chief, Lifecycle Risk Management & Cybersecurity/Acquisition, U.S. Department of Defense (moderator)
  • Sonny Bhagowalia, CIO, U.S. Department of the Treasury
  • Dr. Ray Letteer, Chief, Cyber Security Division, U.S. Marine Cops
  • Dr. Ron Ross, Fellow, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
  • Rod Turk, Acting CIO, U.S. Department of Commerce
  • Danny Toler, Deputy Assistant Secretary, CS&C, NPPD, U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Other presentations on the agenda include: “Cyber Policy panel: Review the Presidential Executive Order for Cyber Security and IT Modernization Act”, “Use Case: Putting CISQ Standards into Action at Agile Speed” and “The Value of Security Benchmarks and Controls.”

 

To view the complete Cyber Resilience Summit agenda and to register, please visit http://it-cisq.org/cyber-resilience-summit-2017/.

 

The Cyber Resilience Summit is a special event, co-located during the OMG® Technical Meeting from March 20-24, 2017 in Reston, Virginia. Attendees who register for the full Technical Meeting week do not have to pay the additional fee to attend the Summit.
