You are cordially invited to attend a CIO Council hosted round-table discussion at FAU’s Boca campus (map) on November 10, 2015 at 6:30pm. A light dinner will be served.

Each quarter the CIO Council holds a round-table discussion to explore issues facing CIOs. Our November 10 meeting will bring together CIOs and faculty from FAU's College of Engineering and Computer Science as we tackle the question "Can mid-market companies afford big data and IT security".

We've assembled a prestigious panel of industry and faculty presenters as well as a special guest from the US Secret Service to deep-dive into this question and uncover the answers.

President, iCoast CIO Council
