Mississippi Virtual Digital Government Summit 2021

Sep 28, 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

I am excited to announce that the partnership between the State of Mississippi and Government Technology will continue in hosting the Mississippi Digital Government Summit for the tenth year. This event provides an excellent forum for IT Government leaders to interact with our industry counterparts to facilitate a dialog with the goal of providing the citizens of Mississippi an improved level of government service delivery through innovative technology. I cordially invite and encourage you to join us and take part in the virtual conversation while also hearing from multiple dynamic keynote speakers.

- David C. Johnson, Chief Information Officer, State of Mississippi
