- Federal data is valuable and sensitive and thus requires top notch security. Protection schemes need to be proactive - anticipating the new vulnerabilities of the cloud rather than responding to the cyber concerns of the past. But anticipated Federal spending does not match with what works best for the cloud and what will work best going forward in a turbulent cyber environment. Join our webcast to discuss the future concerns of cybersecurity at the Federal level and how spending priorities and security tools could be better aligned to anticipate and tackle these risks.
- Private sector companies and even the federal government are rapidly adopting e-signatures –nearly 700 million transactions in 2017 relied on the technology. But as a state or local government leader, you may need to know more before you are comfortable implementing a solution.

- The current administration has made the cloud a key component of its strategy for IT modernization, citing its “excellent levels of functionality, cost effectiveness, and security.” However, the administration also acknowledges that, despite its well-known benefits, broad scale migration to the cloud remains stymied in many agencies. The challenge is twofold. First, agencies need a better understanding of the obstacles to cloud adoption and how to overcome them. In particular, they need to understand the different approaches to the cloud and how to select the one that best meets their requirements. Second, agencies need to think in new ways about the cloud—recognizing the opportunities it presents to transform their operations.
