Los Angeles Virtual Digital Government Summit 2021

Aug 24, 2021


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

These have been challenging times and there is a lot to discuss regarding what return to work and the new normal will look like and the many innovative solutions that have been put in place that will continue to benefit our employees and residents. Please join us for the virtual version of our annual Digital Government Summit. Although I will miss the networking that has always been a great part of the summit, it promises to be a great experience for all that join. We all will be involved in shaping the future of the LA Digital Government Summit!

– Peter Loo, Acting Chief Information Officer, Los Angeles County

From COVID to social change, these are challenging times for public-sector technologists. The L.A. Digital Government Summit (virtual edition) is THE CONFERENCE to learn, connect, and prepare for the changes around us. I’m looking forward to it!

– Ted Ross, Chief Information Officer, City of Los Angeles
