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

We are excited to host the virtual West Virginia Digital Government Summit this year. Technology innovation is about ideas, and the difference between a good idea and a great idea is that a great idea is achievable. It is important for us to find those achievable ideas and see how they interrelate with every aspect of government. The key to success is to work together. Please join us as the government and technology sectors gather together online for a day of discussion, collaboration, and relationship building.

– Josh Spence, Chief Technology Officer, State of West Virginia
