Leveraging technology to serve the public through challenges and opportunities
Local government, like all organizations, must navigate an ever-changing technological landscape to provide the best service possible to their communities. But with constantly evolving technology, limited budgets and the need for strict security and compliance measures, it can take a lot of work to manage everything in-house.
Municipalities face a range of technology challenges, including outdated or inadequate IT infrastructure, cybersecurity threats, data management and compliance with HIPAA and GDPR. Outsourced technology services can help local government in several ways, including reducing costs associated with training in-house IT staff, modernizing outdated technology systems and providing ongoing support and maintenance. An IT partner can provide local government agencies with the insight, resources and support needed to effectively manage technology systems and meet constituents’ needs.
A SUPERINTENDENT’S PERSPECTIVE…
“Your [cybersecurity audit] presentation confirmed some of our beliefs; substantiated with processes and research to make it meaningful. There were some surprises, but the reasoning made for a clearer picture. The [IT team] felt strongly that your audit was valuable and gave us good insight on our needs and vulnerabilities along with possible solutions.”
