Top CTO Concerns for 2019

Each year we poll our technology leaders to see what they think are the most pressing issues for the year to come. While recruiting is still the top concern, this year data privacy and regulations topped security. These are the area our members will be focusing on in 2019:

  • Recruiting: attracting talent, building pipelines, hire vs. train, junior vs. senior, non-traditional candidates
  • Cultural integration after an acquisition
  • Retention
  • Data privacy: real and perceived privacy concerns; public perception and regulation
  • Security: information security, IoT, supply chain, social layer
  • Regulations on privacy, transactions, and subscriptions
  • Keeping up with the pace and breadth of change
  • Burnout from a volatile market
  • Velocity
