Virtual Event: COVID, Cyber, and Congress – What’s Next for Federal IT Modernization?

July 14, 2021, 1:00-2:00 p.m. EST

Speaker: Victoria Espinel, President and CEO, BSA | The Software Alliance

Among other impacts, the COVID-19 pandemic has focused the attention of members of Congress on the limits of legacy IT systems and the delivery of services. At the same time, recent cybersecurity incidents have prompted a sea of change, raising awareness of the acute need to modernize federal IT infrastructure. The Biden Administration has signaled strong support for federal IT modernization and Congress recently provided $1 billion for the Technology Modernization Fund. The White House’s historic cybersecurity executive order has also directed all agencies to plan for accelerating the movement to secure cloud services. As federal agencies wrestle with the cost of maintaining legacy IT and Congress on the eve of an infrastructure debate, what’s next for federal IT modernization?

BSA's Victoria Espinel moderates a panel of experts from on and off the Hill to look at where we are and what’s coming for federal IT modernization policy.

Fireside Chat:

  • Allison Tinsey, Counsel for Governmental Affairs to Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH)
  • Dileep Srihari, Senior Counsel, Access Partnership
