Successful Metadata Management Strategy and Implementation for State Government (webinar)

Effective metadata management is no longer an option, but an absolute requirement for state governments and federal agencies looking to enable their master data management and data governance initiatives.  Without proper metadata management their IT departments cannot manage their systems and ensure that they are providing the true value to the agency.

This practical course leverages the lessons learned from successful metadata management programs and it explains:
•    Metadata Management Fundamentals
•    Business vs. Technical Metadata
•    Metadata Management Use Cases
•    Metadata ROI
•    Metadata Management and Data Management

Managing Software Risk in a Multi-Sourced Environment (webinar)

This webinar focused on business related software risk.  This is the risk that organizations face that is inherent in systems and applications.  There are three levels of risk associated with the structure of systems.  They include the system level, the technology level and the code level.  In this webinar, we explored the magnitude of risk attributable to each of these layers.  

Systems and applications in the 21st Century enterprise are highly complex involving many layers and components, technologies, languages.  All of this complexity creates risk.  Add to this the advent of cloud, mobile, and new approaches to development such as agile and we find mission critical business processes are supported by highly complex portfolio of technology and development that must be orchestrated by an overall architecture.

We explored what can be done about managing this complexity and the inherent risk that accompanies it. You will learn about the Consortium for IT Software Quality (CISQ) and recent legislation that demonstrates the importance government is placing on this type of risk at the federal and state level.

Digital Transformation in Government: The Illinois Blockchain Initiative (webinar)
During this session with NASCIO, a team from Illinois will share their Blockchain experiences and best practices to date including regulatory, industry, technology maturity and potential public sector usage of this emerging technology. They will also drill down on progress to date as the state has embarked upon a series of 5 proof of concept use cases for Blockchain.
 
The Illinois Blockchain Initiative (IBI) was launched earlier this year. The goal of the initiative is to determine if this groundbreaking technology can be leveraged to create more efficient, integrated and trusted state services, while providing a welcoming environment for the Blockchain community. 
 
Blockchain and distributed ledger technology has the potential to transform the delivery of public and private services, redefine the relationship between government and the citizen in terms of data sharing, transparency and trust, and make a leading contribution to the State’s digital transformation.

Better Data Security Through Classification: A Game Plan for Smart Cybersecurity Investments
The brief, a joint project between NASCIO’s Cybersecurity Committee and Data Protection Working Group, explains why a risk based cybersecurity approach is the most beneficial to state government data. When states take a risk based approach they improve operational efficiency, assessments are more accurate, attack surfaces are reduced and decision making is improved. As the brief states, taking an enterprise mentality brings together previously silo-based security and IT tools and allows for ongoing and continuous data monitoring and assessing.

State Cybersecurity Resource Guide

The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) supports National Cybersecurity
Awareness Month, now in its 13th year. State CIOs and the programs they administer have supported
cybersecurity awareness month from its inception, and states address IT security and privacy awareness,
education, and training on a year-round basis.

For the 2016 observance, NASCIO has updated its Resource Guide for State Cybersecurity Awareness, Education, and Training Initiatives. This guide includes:

  • Updated information on state awareness programs, initiatives and best-practice information;
  • Contact information for state chief information security officers (CISOs);
  • Hyperlinks to state security and security awareness pages; and
  • Information describing cybersecurity awareness, training, and education initiatives.

The Resource Guide is a working document that should prove a valuable resource for Cybersecurity Awareness Month, as well as the ongoing planning of security awareness and training efforts state programs may undertake thereafter.
