We have talked about our valued partner Skytop Strategies before – an organization that develops highly-engaging executive roundtable discussions around the globe on a range of topics that should be on the radar of every Chief Information Governance Officer and information leader in our community.
That’s why we are excited to tell you about two great new events where we are partnering with Skytop to bring the IG message to executives and boards, and also to provide opportunities for IG professionals like you to learn and join that conversation.
Come to the May 19th Event in New York
The first event is The 21st Century Company – How It Creates Value, and for Whom which runs at Baruch College in Manhattan all day on May 19th, 2016. You can check out the full program here, but some of the highlights for IG pros are sessions on connecting risk management (a key facet of IG) to company performance; strategies for engaging diverse corporate stakeholders (a key challenge of IG); as well as discussion and insight from a stellar group of business leaders including:
- Susanne Stormer, Vice President, Corporate Sustainability, Chief Sustainability Officer, Novo Nordisk
- David J. Westfall, Senior Director, Decision Support and Innovation Leader, AON Hewitt
- Michael Madon, Chief Executive Officer, Ataata
- Daryl Brewster, Chief Executive Officer, CECP
- Livia Konkel, Director, Corporate Responsibility & Inclusion and Global Head, Diversity & Inclusion, Thomson Reuters
- Karen Morris, Former Chief Innovation Officer, AIG
- Chris Pinney, President and Chief Executive Officer. High Meadows Institute, Inc.

Cybersecurity and Information Governance
The second Skytop event we are excited about (and not just because we get to go to Rome) is the Skytop Global Cybersecurity Summit on October 31st and November 1st, 2016. The importance of leadership from IG professionals on cybersecurity has never been more acute, which is why it is a major focus for the IGI. Our partnership with Skytop on this event will help us continue to fulfill our mandate to promote the adoption of IG around the world, and to provide opportunities for our community to learn and advance in their careers. It also helps us in our ongoing effort to expand the IGI footprint to Europe and beyond.
Barclay will be speaking at the Summit, which will convene 150 senior-level executives including heads of information technology, security, law, risk, governance, as well as audit and compliance, who are seeking solutions to complex cyber challenges in the market.
