Think Tank

Transformation of the IT Organization to a Product Centric Structure and Focus

Peer started as Group CIO in 2016 setting the new team and direction. Complexity as well as coordination cross functions increased as we in four years grew from 12 to 70 employees and 40 consultants.


In 2020 we introduced an agile transformation and changed our organisation from a Plan-Build-Run to a product centric approach enabling closer business engagement.  We focus on being able to 'Deploy at will' which enables our teams to deliver value to the business faster. We changed the culture to continuous learning, and we are in the process of shifting the leadership role to an empowerment mindset - a journey of delegation and empowerment to teams.

The New Workforce - Rethinking Security Strategy

The arrival of the covid19 pandemic is said to be one of the most powerful change agents the world has ever seen. Enforcing a more or less complete digitalization and virtualization of our workday overnight. Slowly and steadily, we are crawling our way back to our lives as they used to be, but some things will most likely be forever changed. 

  • What happens to us when we lose the familiar surroundings of the office over time? 
  • How does it affect the CIA-triangle of information security? 
  • How should we rewrite our security strategy to accommodate this new, virtual workforce?

Join Bjorn to discover his personal observations from the trenches during the past 18 months dealing with the pandemic in the role as CISO in financial services. He will share insights on data collected around employee awareness and security culture, and whether this has changed since working from home. Lastly, Bjorn will delve into possible angles to overcome these obstacles and how to move forward with a good security posture.

How Hackers Can Help You Protect Your Company

Most of the time, the word "hacker" is seen as having negative connotations. But hackers are rarely as seen on TV. Many professional hackers work to keep people safe by finding security vulnerabilities before criminals do. No matter how mature your security program is, you may still overlook some details. 

Join this presentation to hear about, and share your experience on integration of penetration testing into your security efforts, why this might benefit you, and what are the pitfalls to avoid.

Is Digital Transformation Driving the Need for DevSecOps?

There are over 20 million developers working for Enterprise organizations across the globe. The universal desire for faster innovation and Digital Transformation has led to DevOps empowered developers demanding efficient reuse of code, which in turn has led to a growing dependence on open source and third-party software libraries. This velocity means applications are developed faster but it also introduces new security risks. 

Join us as we discuss how the modern software supply chain and the drive for digital innovation is putting organizations at risk. And whether it is time to empower every developer to be a DevSecOps expert?

Digital Transformation=> Digital Evolution

With consumer changing behaviours, generations growing up learning to swipe left or right when they are still in diapers, and a pandemic that has increased web traffic and changed timing of when interactions happen. It's more than ever relevant to digitalise, reflect of where we are at and where we are going next.

 As an established insurer we set the aim a number of years back to be the Leading Digital Insurer. This has been (and still is) a journey in our ways of working, becoming agile while getting transparency and ownership of our IT cost and risk structure, but of course primarily working very close with our business on addressing customer's needs and enabling insights and new partnerships and ecosystems.

Jenny will cover a few cases in this journey as well as some of the learnings we've made on the way.

Think Tank

Artificial Intelligence in Cybersecurity - Dream vs. Reality

Opportunities for use of AI appear to be limitless. The claims go from a promise that automated security protection will make the job of security professionals much easier up to the extreme that the (artificially) intelligent systems can entirely replace humans. But what realistically can we expect from AI? The answer to this question is especially important in the context of cybersecurity. Overestimating capabilities of the AI enabled cybersecurity systems could provide a false sense of security. Underestimating the value of the AI systems, on the other hand, would leave us with inefficient cybersecurity protection. In both cases our systems would be vulnerable to the attacks of those that use sophisticated AI techniques and tools.

Understanding Cyberattack Risk in Your Organization: Time to Re-evaluate the Fundamentals?
  • How can organizations ensure that budget spent on security solutions are in fact reducing the company's overall risk profile?
  • Has your company made any structural changes to the organization to ensure that IT leaders who manage identity and access control are contributing to discussions with executives about managing the risk of cyberattacks?
  • Given that many cyberattacks start by exploiting vulnerabilities in IT systems, how has your company pivoted to ensure that foundational security practices are closing some of the most common gaps?
