The half-day summit will begin with lunch at noon, followed by an afternoon of programming with ample networking time, then cocktails and dinner.

Key Points

  • According to Anil Dash, CEO of Glitch and self-proclaimed tech optimist, the ability to check in with remote employees via different tools and platforms is liberating and productive for many, but there are differences. “Vulnerable people in your organization don’t experience surveillance as helpful,” he said.
  • “We’re never going to solve this talent shortage if companies don’t address what’s happening at the entry level,” Simone Petrella, CEO of CyberVista told CNBC’s Jon Fortt. She said companies should put a bigger focus on evaluating the tech talent they have and then put in place upskilling programs to get them to the next level. Petrella added that the average cyber job takes six months to fill.
  • The unrelenting frequency of cyber attacks on companies, hospital systems, schools and critical U.S. infrastructure has reached a boiling point, said Kevin Mandia, CEO of Mandiant, the company that discovered the SolarWinds attack nearly a year ago. “Everyone is tired of ransomware,” he told CNBC Senior Washington Correspondent Eamon Javers. But there are things companies can do. He urged TEC members to require two-factor authentication in their organizations and to make spear phishing training essential for all employees.
  • “There’s just so much we don’t know about space yet,” said Jared Isaacman, Shift4 Payments founder and commander of the first all-civilian crew to orbit the Earth. He told TEC members that the role of the private sector in space exploration is a good thing, adding that capital can be deployed more efficiently than when it comes from the government.

Key Points

  • Managing Director & Sr. Policy Analyst at Longview Global Dewardric McNeal believes the different geopolitical perspectives of countries competing in the tech industry can lead to long-term tech allocation issues beyond the pandemic.
  • “Rethinking your company’s supply chain can come with increased costs, however it can reduce your company’s risk from unknown factors that can significantly impact it, such as the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Mark Fields, former President & CEO of Ford Motor Company.

A conversation focusing on the technological breakthroughs that resulted from the pandemic, specifically with vaccine distribution and the ability to track digital health data. Members also examined the relationship between a company's CEO and CIO in addressing improvements in technology to maintain and balance hybrid work in the post-pandemic period.

Key Points

  • According to Tyagarajan, CEO of Genpact and TEC member: "COVID-19 is not only a health problem but also a communication problem. One asymptomatic person can lead to a rapid spread of the virus, and this can be solved with rapid testing."
  • Despite the efficiency and convenience of digital communication, solely interacting virtually can make it more difficult to empathize with coworkers.
  • Working in the office should have an incentivizing factor that employees cannot replicate with remote work.

Technology Executive Council | Security & Data

Following the SolarWinds hack, we discuss the meaning of cybersecurity and whether it should be publicly disclosed when companies are breached. The future of technological advancement also brings China into the conversation regarding rapid tech innovation as well as how the United States must keep up.

Key Points

  • When companies have been breached, the need for public disclosure comes with security issues. Companies should carefully select who they are disclosing to and what the disclosure is.
  • China is currently in the lead for technological innovation, however the gap between China and the United States is shrinking.

Digital transformation spurred by the global pandemic has had and will continue to have big implications across all aspects of society; summit sessions to cover the pandemic’s impact on: Government & Democracy, Economy, Public Health, Work, & Social Justice.

  • Technology’s role in the new future of retail and the consumer experience has influenced new safety protocols.
