Georgia Digital Government Summit 2018

Sep 20 - 21, 2018
Atlanta, GA

Overview

Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Georgia Digital Government Summit is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public sector and private sector leaders to create an agenda designed to make that passion relevant and actionable to the state and local government organizations attending the summit. Participants tell us they use inspirational keynotes, leadership discussions, networking breaks, and timely topics discussed in the numerous breakout sessions to help advance the goals of their organizations and their own career paths.

Topics Include:

  • Atlanta Ransomware Incident – Lessons Learned
  • Maintaining Control in the Cloud
  • Resource Sharing Successes
  • Georgia Smart
  • Reinventing the Customer Experience
  • Data Privacy Strategies
  • Smart Cities and the Evolution of Transportation
  • Georgia Cyber Center – It’s Live!
  • Active Shooter Scenarios

A message from our Keynote Speaker

The rate of change in technology is mind boggling – and today it’s likely the slowest we’ll see in our lifetime. As technology continues to transform the way government does business, the Georgia Digital Government Summit offers us a timely opportunity to explore innovative ways to take advantage of these changes. With outstanding speakers and engaging presentations, the agenda is well suited for both IT staff and agency business leaders. The Summit has earned a reputation as a ‘can’t miss’ event – I hope you’ll plan to attend.


– Calvin Rhodes, Chief Information Officer, State of Georgia
