As part of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we wanted to discuss election security and the imperative duty to safeguard our democratic systems.
In the blink of an eye, remote work was no longer a business convenience, it was essential.
This week in #EducationNow, join one of our cybersecurity experts to learn how Cisco Networking Academy is answering the call to cybersecurity education in a rapidly evolving threat landscape.
As schools, colleges, and universities around the world open their virtual and physical classrooms and campuses, administrators are asking the question: “How are we going to make this semester work for our students, faculty, staff, and IT teams?”
For our last #GovernmentNow post, we discussed the challenges and opportunities to reimagining public service. Today, we look at how the pandemic has interrupted the status quo for transportation around the world, while we assess the implications for the future of mobility.
Recently, we’ve had two special edition posts. First, a feature from #PublicSectorNow that took a look at – and gave some praise for – the impressive results of remote telework that are keeping governments running around the world. Next, some insightful guidance in how to lead through crisis.
The Center for Digital Education recently spoke with Steve Caimi, Cisco public sector cybersecurity specialist, about lessons learned and best practices as institutions look to hybrid and online learning environments in the fall and beyond.
In this Government Technology Q&A, Marc Moffett, Cisco systems engineering lead for state and local governments, discusses what the roadmap for modernization will look like going forward.
Studies have long argued that there are three types of learners: audible, visual, or kinetic. The trick? To work out what type of learner you were, then harness it.
This week, join us as we travel to the far north of Canada, where distance learning is nothing new to the schools of Connected North and virtual field trips transport students to distant places and spaces.
As the world around us changes, often inexplicably and without any sense of consideration, we must find a way to balance growth and the protection of public safety and health.
The World Health Organization notes that almost all people affected by emergencies will experience psychological distress. Now, more than ever, actions to protect mental health are of the utmost importance. Governments must respond, recover, and reimagine in ways that devote resources, develop programs, and improve access to mental health care.
With many educational organizations shifting their entire schedules to distance learning tools or full virtual environments indefinitely, never has the statement “we are all in this together” been more poignant.
Over the past two months, the number of students and faculty using the Webex Education Connector has grown 770%.
Teachers are front and center in the transition to distance learning and the battle to provide education – no matter what is happening in the world.
Data breaches cause real-world damage and tarnish the credibility of the organizations that fall prey to them.
From disinfecting robots to IoT virus sensors, new innovations can keep urban centers safe.
When we look at the world today, it has been revolutionized by the cloud, and it has disrupted the way business is done.
Right now, COVID-19 is forcing many people around the world to work remotely.
Every business is struggling with how to keep their businesses running while keeping their employees and customers safe.
Taking steps to stay safe online is a year-round effort, but every October — during National Cybersecurity Awareness Month — things are ramped up a notch. Individuals and organizations of all types stop to remind themselves about the importance of cybersecurity and of making sure that everyone has the resources they need to protect themselves online.
Educational institution systems store a large amount of sensitive data, including student and employee records. They rely heavily on these systems for day-to-day operations. So any disruption or loss of access can be a game changer. But these same institutions also often have tight budgets and can’t afford to employ large security teams. That’s one reason they’re perceived as easy and lucrative targets by online adversaries.
In today’s installment of our #FutureofPublicSector series, we explore the myriad of challenges threatening public safety and the technology solutions that are emerging as governments and public- sector leaders endeavor to keep citizens, cities and nations safer than ever.
Today’s stop while exploring #TheFutureofPublicSector takes us to education and what the future will make possible for teaching and learning. So, what does the future hold for education as we know it?
The complexity challenge and what you can do about it.
Cities around the world face rapid urbanization, economic constraints, and environmental concerns. To address these challenges, city administrators are turning to technology, especially the Internet of Things (IoT), to digitize city operations.
