RECOVER, PLAN, PREPARE - "Jam" Board Workshops— Secure Your Roadmap in this Work Room

Let's Jam using HCD and Google Jamboard to Recover, Plan, and Prepare with actionable content delivery. The point of developing a crisis management plan is to think through any difficult decisions and map out, to the best of your ability, the necessary tasks, communication and information that will help make managing a crisis easier and more efficient. In this episode, we will be using an electronic whiteboard to facilitate collaborative brainstorming, idea sharing, and creativity in developing a notional plan for future crises. Facilitators will cover all topics – recover, plan, or prepare to create, and post sticky notes during this episode that will be analyzed in Jamboard Analysis Video.

PREPARE- Fireside Chat with Colonel (ret) Bobby Saxon, Deputy Chief Information Officer, CMS

The challenge for leaders is to deploy influence, often beyond their formal authority, to foster unity of purpose and effort. The secrets to success are communication, coordination, and collaboration.

PREPARE- Your ICIT "Jam" Board Journal - Recover, Plan Prepare (Analysis)

The key purpose, to identify ideas and best practices that can potentially be replicated and will best align an organization’s resources and capabilities to the requirements of the environment.

Our esteemed evaluators will use this model as the foundation for assessing the internal potential and limitations and the probable/likely opportunities and threats from the external environment. They will view all positive and negative factors inside and outside the organization that affect the success. This analysis of the environment in which the organization operates will offer suggestions in forecasting/predicting the changing trends and also help in including them in the decision-making process.

Expert Women Led Panel Discussion - Epilogue: Building a Holistic Cybersecurity Culture

Despite heightened risks over data breaches, over 40% of organizations do not have a proper cybersecurity strategy. Making cybersecurity the DNA of an organization is not an easy undertaking, but not impossible, right? It might take a lot of effort to identify gaps in the business procedures where hackers could sneak in. Organizations should also ramp up their defense procedures by instilling complete transparency over cybersecurity risks. But first, they should build a holistic approach to cybersecurity, a posture that combines employees, processes, and technologies. This final panel is the Epilogue which will examine holistic approaches to cybersecurity strategy which can be obtained by mixing integrated security methods, impactful employee upskilling/reskilling, robust infrastructure, best risk-analysis programs, effective policies, and building a culture of cybersecurity as a shared responsibility.

Closing Keynote | Fireside Chat - THE NEW NORMAL

The National Institutes of Health (NIH and more specifically the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is at the epicenter of research and early warnings of emerging diseases wherever they occur, which will be critical to rapid responses. The knowledge gained through this research will increase our preparedness for future outbreaks. In this episode, the Chief Information Officer and the Director of the Office of Cyber Infrastructure and Computational Biology for NIAID will share his ideas and recommendations for Digital Collaboration in Technology and Science as part of the “New Normal.”
