The role of the CFO has changed from being the keeper of accounting records to the driver of business change with data and financial information. The CFO should now be prepared to be a trusted advisor and partner to the CEO, CIO and CISO in the development of strategic plans and to drive innovation throughout the organization all while controlling costs. To truly be effective, it is impossible to ignore the data and fraud risks related to cybersecurity as part of the role. Explore how driving the importance of a modern IT infrastructure and advise how transforming your IT organization will enhance security, mitigate fraud exposure and provide savings and efficiencies critical to your business’ success.
