Virtual COVITS 2021

Sep 8, 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. COVITS 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

Covid-19 has further proved that the role of IT is limitless. It forced us to adapt and change the way we work and our lives as a whole, relying on IT more than ever. This year’s virtual COVITS will be a safe, engaging way for us to learn and grow together. We’ve accomplished a lot, but we have much more to do! We look forward to seeing you!

- Grindly Johnson, Secretary of Administration, Commonwealth of Virginia
