Mike Santimaw, SVP, Chief Information Officer
Jason Frugé, VP, Chief Information Security Officer, Rent-A-Center
Leading with a focus towards an “Information Resilience” methodology is required to maintain predictable business operations and associated security posture. The partnership between the CISO and CIO is more important than ever before.
Today, we can be more confident than ever before that complete attack avoidance is impossible. Our need to design critical information systems to absorb the attacks and not disrupt the business is more significant than ever before. Shifting toward Information Resilience is a pragmatic and refreshing approach that will resonate with all business leaders. Traditionally, resiliency was thought to be about having a great disaster recovery plan. Join us to learn how today, it’s about putting the most resources where they matter most.
We invite you to join Mike and Jason as they discuss the lessons that brought them toward this journey of resilience.
