State CIO Priorities: Workforce, Cybersecurity, and Digital Transformation

Digital transformation is bringing exciting new capabilities and efficiencies to state and local governments. At the same time, most are also grappling with cybersecurity concerns and a growing need to hire, train, and retain IT employees. Throw in the growing pressure from not only elected officials, but also the general public, to digitize aging legacy systems and IT teams have their work cut out for them.

Watch state CIOs and industry experts discuss the pressing issues facing state and local government IT teams during the next installment of MeriTalk’s State Tech Vision series. We’ll explore how IT teams are growing and preparing their workforce to meet the increasing cybersecurity and digital transformation needs – such as cloud and identity access management – and how new Federal funding is coming into play.
