Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Kentucky Digital Government Summit is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public- 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 the inspirational keynotes, leadership discussions, networking breaks, and the timely topics discussed in the numerous breakout sessions to help advance the goals of their organizations.
If you influence or participate in technology decisions or implementations at any level, you will want to attend. Don't miss this opportunity to see the latest in digital government solutions, keep abreast of current policy issues, and network with key government executives, technologists and industry specialists.
This year's Topics include:
From Analyst to Hero: How Big Data Led to Bin Laden
Nada Bakos, Former CIA Analyst and Current Inquisitor
Nada Bakos was a routine CIA analyst until 9/11 changed the world forever. Nada was immediately assigned to a series of critical assignments aimed at Al-Qaeda's leadership. Eventually she headed up the team that is credited with a crucial breakthrough: they discovered an emissary used by Bin Laden to communicate to operatives in the region. It was this emissary who helped lead the U.S. to Bin Laden’s personal courier who in turn led our forces to the compound in Pakistan. The rest is history. In this riveting keynote address, Nada tells the inside story of how Big Data helped lead to the capture of Al-Qaeda leaders, including the most wanted man in history. Her inspirational messages include: never give up, love what you do, the importance of teamwork, and why every job has meaning.
