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 They argue that "the prevalence of outdated legacy IT continues to hamper the effectiveness of [pandemic] recovery efforts.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.”
