The pandemic has increased the importance of the digital world and set new standards of connection for all of us. Almost every industry has had to adapt, and the public sector is no exception.
County governments, with broad responsibilities for health, well-being, infrastructure, safety, environmental protection and a host of other key community functions, have adapted to new realities, challenges and opportunities. Much of this was accomplished with the expertise and support of the county’s IT leaders.
County IT leaders have also developed a set of technology priorities for 2022, including enhanced cybersecurity, IT leader recruitment and retention, data governance, broadband, cloud adoption, autonomous innovation and technology support for rural counties.
There are several challenges that are resonating across industries and are of increasing concern to local governments: cyber security, staff recruitment and retention, cyber insurance and broadband.
