"I always look forward to the Los Angeles Digital Government Summit. Each year... I take many notes, see new vendor technologies, brainstorm with colleagues, and apply what I learned back at my workplace. This is a rare opportunity for L.A. IT professionals (and tech

-savvy leaders) to discuss effective government technology for the good of our citizens, departments, and stakeholders. The Los Angeles Digital Government Summit is well worth your time and I hope to see you there."


– Ted Ross, General Manager and Chief Information Officer, Information Technology Agency, City of Los Angeles

Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Los Angeles 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.

General Session – Breach! When Bad Things Happen to Good People (and Their Organizations)

Cyber security is the new front line of financial crime and social upheaval. It is the new Wild West, with hackers divided among the "white hats" and "black hats." Stage coach and bank robberies of old have been replaced by heists of personally identifiable information from major retailers, insurers and governments. Political protests are increasingly taking the form of denial-of-service attacks by so-called “hactivists” to disrupt the normal order of things. Such things can and do happen anywhere, and everybody has a role in preventing, preparing for, and responding to cyber threats. This interactive session unpacks key lessons and learnings from real-life cases with the help of a panel of local experts and engaged audience members.



Keynote – Natives, Immigrants and Innovators – Oh My!

Jared Covili, Professional Development Trainer, Utah Education Network

Whether "digital immigrants" or "digital native", everyone brings a wealth of experience to the workplace that can be enhanced using new tools. Technology has reached the point where it can support just about anything that anyone wants to do. The toughest challenge is embracing the process of reinvention, but sometimes external pressures leave you no choice. In this session, author and professor Jared Covili will discuss innovative ways of leveraging a technology-diverse workforce through modern social media and technology tools.
