Government agencies and institutions are taking a road trip to the cloud but who has the map?
Government agencies and institutions, including:
• Police stations;
• State colleges;
• Our nation’s capital;
• Federal, state and local agencies; and
• Higher education institutions
are buried by regulations, pressed by tight budgets and limited by legacy systems. To bypass these issues, many are taking a detour and heading to the cloud.
October is in full swing, and with that we welcome cooler temps, changing leaves, Halloween, and importantly, National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM).
In its 13th year, NCASM was created to raise awareness about cyber security. The annual campaign features weekly cyber security themes designed to educate and engage the public and private sectors.
In my recent posts, I’ve focused on initiatives in the Federal space and steps Avnet Government Solutions is taking to protect Uncle Sam’s goods. As summer wraps up I wanted to drill down on the other side of the public sector. Last month we attended XChange SLED University and then road tripped to the Sunshine State for NASCIO a couple weeks ago. The state, local and education (SLED) industry provides a lot of white space and the time to capitalize is now. But first, let’s take a closer look at what SLED organizations are doing to shake things up.
