Every year, the RSA Conference brings together cybersecurity’s movers and shakers. From Feb. 27 to March 2, public- and private-sector representatives attended the event in San Francisco to discuss how systems and processes can be secured. Government Technology caught up with some industry representatives to find out where the next cyberthreats will come from and how a cyberattack could hurt a country or government.
This Digital Communities white paper highlights discussions with IT officials in four counties that have adopted shared services models. Our aim was to learn about the obstacles these governments have faced when it comes to shared services and what it takes to overcome those roadblocks. We also spoke with several members of the IT industry who have thought long and hard about these issues. The paper offers some best practices for shared government-to-government services, but also points out challenges that government and industry still must overcome before this model gains widespread adoption.
