In government, there are many unknowns that impact the ability to serve the public – from severe weather events to cyberattacks. The once-in-a-century pandemic elevated the need for digital resiliency at a new level, enabling leaders to rapidly adapt to change or disruptions with the support of advanced technology.
As governments work to set the foundations for digital resiliency, IDC’s view is that it should extend beyond business continuity to be more proactive and future-proof. Featured Speaker Ruthbea Yesner, VP of Government Insights, Education and Smart Cities for the IDC, will discuss IDC’s Resiliency framework with a focus on the tools and technologies that enable state and local digital resiliency in this free webinar.
This webinar is designed for practitioners in both IT and non-IT roles in state and local government.
