At this Beltug/ISACA event, we will focus on the role of digital governance and trust professionals who bring the knowledge and experience needed to align IT with business strategies, to manage IT investments for maximum return on investment, and support resilience in IT operations while minimising risks.

Firstly, we will hear use cases from NATO and PSA, offering insights, best practices and inspiration on how to implement digital governance practices in the organisation and increase trust in digitisation. Then, we’ll present the findings from ISACA’s Global State of Digital Trust 2023 survey and we’ll have a panel discussion on the future of digital governance and trust: how will it look moving forward, and what are some of the major challenges to overcome?

This will be a hybrid event: you may choose to register for in-person or online participation. However, as there is limited space for in-person participants, once the maximum in-person capacity is reached, you will only have the possibility to register for online participation.

Beltug’s corporate basic and corporate premium memberships allow you to pass on this invitation. We think this session might interest your colleagues in legal and compliance.

ISACA members can earn up to 5 CPEs if they attend the full programme – make sure to mention your ISACA ID when registering.
