Georgia Virtual Digital Government Summit 2021

Sep 9, 2021

Overview

Government Technology's passion is promoting best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector – more important than ever in challenging times like these. The Virtual Digital Government Summit offers a unique opportunity to explore a variety of technology topics and possibilities. Please join us for a day of powerful sessions that provide inspiration, participation, education, and thought-provocation!

The conference is presented in a virtual format on Zoom for Government, a FedRAMP-certified infrastructure with advanced security controls, that is used for meetings and webinars by the Department of Homeland Security and numerous other federal, state and local agencies. Zoom for Government leverages one of the largest secured networks of government-specific datacenters in the country and meets high standards of security (Including: FedRAMP, CJIS, NIST, FISMA, SRG, FIPS, DFARS, EAR, IRS-1075).

A message from our Keynote Speaker

Technology’s potential for transforming government has been on full display during the past year, as organizations at every level worked to serve citizens in new and changing circumstances. The 2021 Georgia Digital Government Summit offers a timely opportunity for our state’s IT staff and agency business leaders to gather in a virtual setting to share what we’ve learned and explore the important issues we all face. I hope you’ll plan to join us.

– Shawnzia Thomas, Chief Information Officer, State of Georgia
