A virtual event experience like never before

ME Live: CIO is an exclusive invitation-only business networking event.

Offering a unique concept, ME Live: CIO brings together a community of selected IT leaders
from top organizations across Europe for a fully interactive and content-rich agenda.

When Technology is the Business – 18th Nov 2021

What is
ME Live?

ME Live was built on the idea of community – that we can do more together by sharing challenges, developing ideas, and inspiring one another.

That’s why we created a virtual platform that’s more than just a voice on the screen; one that enables interaction beyond polls & quizzes, that isn’t constrained by geographical distance, and that focuses on topics that matter most to you.

Join us at ME Live: CIO!

18th November 2021

With the way forward being customer-focused, and the role of the IT moving exponentially closer to the business,  CIO’s have had their responsibilities grow, and now need to challenge the traditional ways of working.

Customers are already demonstrating a preference for companies that deliver great service while reducing risks along the customer journey. Watch an interview with a leading figure and award-winner about the focus on the evolution of mobility and contactless solutions and what lays ahead for industries during the implementation and what may falter for those who do not.

Angela Maragopoulou, CIO B2B / SVP Business Solutions – Deutsche Telekom AG, Germany

In the new proposal more industries are included based on their importance for society and economy, was there a reason they were not included in the first round and what created the need to include them now? Why is this update coming and do we have a third, fourth or fifth version to look forward to in the future and how do CIOs prepare? Tune in to this interview on NIS2 and the implications of this new directive with a leading authority in the field. All of this will be followed by a 20 minute Q&A from the audience.

Prof Dr Paul Timmers, Former Director  – European Commission, UK

In this age of data, privacy and compliance is heavily discussed, and for good reasons – You can’t have regulatory demands and security being roadblocks on your transformative journey. Discuss with your peers if you should navigate around these “roadblocks”, or if you can turn them into your advantage.

In this panel led by an IT and data protection specialist you get to hear from policy experts and CIOs from some of the industries affected by the directive. How will this affect their profession and organization, and what are their plans for implementations. 

Dr Paul Voigt, Lic. en Derecho, CIPP/E – Taylor Wessing, Germany
