Trulioo Stephen Ufford MIT Sloan CIO Symposium

Stephen Ufford, Trulioo CEO and Founder, has been invited to speak at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He will be joining senior executives from Decision Resources, Benefitfocus, and Broadridge for the panel discussion,“Getting the Data: Approaches to Managing Personal Data” on May 20th at 1:30 pm during the 2015 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium.

As companies begin to move to a “big data” world, they face the problem of acquiring additional data about customers, and the associated problems of privacy, liability, security, and ethical considerations in general. This session will present an approach to this problem that has been hammered out in discussions between senior regulators and CEOs of multinationals, discuss “living lab” experiments testing this new approach in the real world, and report on how multilateral organizations and nations are beginning to partner with private companies in order to allow them to exploit such data. The panelists will discuss and debate the merits of this approach, and comment on how they manage big data in their organizations.

"We are at an inflection point where CIOs are increasingly breaking free of outdated business assumptions that arose from the limits of older technologies,” said Lindsey Anderson, Chair of the 2015 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium. “Our speakers will provide insight into new modes of thinking, practice and collaboration that are required for the future of technology success. Attendees will leave with actionable tools on how to do this through digitization, improvements in technology, and through new thoughtful combinations of people, processes, and technology across a CIO’s entire enterprise.”
