Even as state government Chief Information Security Officers have increased their access to and communications with top leaders, the top three issues impacting states’ cybersecurity remain the same from past surveys – budget, talent and increasing cyber threats. These findings from the 2018 Deloitte-NASCIO Cybersecurity Study are a call for bold action to disrupt the status quo.
As internal and external pressures continue to mount, state technology leaders say they are confident that by building strong teams and embracing new products and development processes, state IT departments will be able to improve how they serve government agencies and residents. Those and other factors contributed heavily to the 2018 State CIO Survey, State CIO as Communicator: The Evolving Nature of Technology Leadership. The survey includes responses from all 50 state CIOs on a range of issues, from evolving business models to workforce and budget to access to innovation and facing the future. Respondents to this year’s survey represent more than 150 years of collective service as a state’s top technology official.
This document renews NASCIO’s call for IT acquisition reform and is a product of the NASCIO Roundtable on IT Procurement Innovation. The publication focuses on the role the private sector can play in the state IT acquisition process (not just the IT procurement process) and includes feedback from NASCIO’s private sector members as well as recommendations for all involved in the state IT acquisition process.
The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO), Grant Thornton LLP and CompTIA have collaborated for an eighth consecutive year to survey state government IT leaders on current issues, trends and perspectives. The survey sponsors seek to provide these state government IT leaders with an opportunity to voice their thoughts and opinions on matters of high importance. The role of the state CIO is being transformed by challenges to traditional business models, by emerging technologies that have the potential to redefine what we consider as "IT", and by the drive to implement digital government. Governors, legislators and business leaders can benefit from these knowledgeable insights about essential state IT services.
Agile is changing the game for state governments. To explore the implications and opportunities, Accenture and the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) are partnering on multifaceted research. Drawing from the public and private sectors, the research reveals a comprehensive perspective on the role of Agile within state government.
