CIOs seek cybersecurity solutions, bigger voice in C-suite
Issues like cybersecurity might keep CIOs up at night, but in Northern New Jersey, at least they know they’re not alone.
Mark Sander co-founded the North Jersey CIO Roundtable under the aegis of that state’s chapter of the Society for Information Management, aiming to bring together tech leaders in a series of meet-ups pegged around issues like security and the role of the CIO in the C-suite.
“There’s a great exchange of information,” Sander says of the meetings.
“It’s lonely as the CIO,” he adds. “It’s nice to talk to your peers and learn from them.”
Sander explains that he initiated the roundtable sessions in a bid to engage CIOs from larger firms in the region just outside New York City, offering a venue free from the distractions that too often arise at industry events billed as networking opportunities.
