BSA | The Software Alliance on Thursday hosted a webinar, “Modernizing Government IT: Citizen Services, Security Risks, and Federal-State Collaboration,” with Cyberspace Solarium Commission member Dr. Samantha Ravich, Georgia state CIO Calvin Rhodes and Ohio CIO Ervan Rodgers. The event was moderated by Ha McNeill of Software.org: The BSA Foundation.
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated state efforts to secure their IT systems and underscored the role of state and local governments as laboratories for cybersecurity efforts – as well as the need for more federal support and private-sector collaboration, according to participants in a webinar.
“States are going to be asked to think through these issues in ways that were never expected before,” said Ravich, who chairs the Center on Cyber and Technology Innovation at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
