How to Perform Automation and Data Protection at Your Organization

Shobhana Ahluwalia, CIO of Peloton and former CIO of Uber

In this edition of the CIO Newsletter, Mark Settle (author and 7x CIO) and Shobhana Ahluwalia, (CIO of Peloton & former CIO of Uber), discuss two critical parts of any IT department: security and automation.  

Key Takeaways: 

  • Automation has a place in every line of business and in both the back and front-office operations. 
  • With new low/no-code tools, the skill sets for automation have changed. Everyone from business users to developers can automate processes. 
  • Focus on automating the processes that really need it—versus automating everything
  • Encryption protection, access control, retention controls, etc. are table stakes for ensuring data security

“It’s so easy to automate a bad process. That’s the thing you should be cautious about.”
