Westchester County, N.Y., received a national award recently for placing among the top counties in 2013's Digital Counties Survey -- its eighth top-10 ranking since 2005. Among the county's achievements were increased transparency, better privacy protection for sensitive and personal data, upgraded open source content management software for all departments, electronic document recording, and many other innovations. County Executive Robert P. Astorino accepted the award October 11.

The annual survey -- which recognizes leading examples of counties using information and communications technology -- chose winners that improved government services and efficiency in spite of tough fiscal barriers. The Digital Counties survey is a product of The Center for Digital Government, the National Association of Counties (NACo) and e.Republic’s Digital Communities Program.
