Tech groups want to make sure Congress prioritizes money for government-related cybersecurity in any future COVID-19 aid package. That came in a letter to congressional leadership from the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), Alliance for Digital Innovation (ADI), BSA | The Software Alliance, the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), the Center for Procurement Advocacy, Internet Association (IA), and the Cybersecurity Coalition.
They said CTO have been doing "admirably" with what they have, but also say more cybersecurity money is needed at all levels of government. They argue that "the prevalence of outdated legacy IT continues to hamper the effectiveness of [pandemic] recovery efforts. Citizens are being denied positive digital government experiences as they seek access to much needed programs, such as securing business loan programs, receiving economic security payments, or applying for unemployment benefits.”
BSA |“软件联盟”(www.bsa.org) 是全球软件行业的主要倡导者，旨在代表该行业，向政府和国际市场发声。其成员包括全球最具创新力的公司，这些公司制定的软件解决方案，不但能够刺激经济，还能提升现代生活的品质。
