CIOs are constantly challenged to deliver more IT services, typically without added resources. One way they and their IT departments are overcoming that challenge is by deploying AI-powered observability and operations platforms, says Willie Hicks, public sector chief technology officer at Dynatrace. These newer generation platforms can vastly improve the ability for IT and security teams to identify application dependencies and resolve network performance issues, especially as they expand to the cloud, says Hicks.

State and local IT leaders have been investing in network modernization well before the COVID pandemic hit. But the surge in demands from the public, and the need to support employees working remotely, have added new urgency to those investment strategies. They’ve also demanded that greater attention be paid to enabling applications, says Anthony Battista, managing director of solutions architecture at Verizon. The pandemic forced public agencies to “change from a premises-based focus to an internet-based focus. When that happens, applications become more network dependent,” says Battista. “And when they're more network dependent, we find that there are four key pillars to focus on.” This podcast is produced by StateScoop and underwritten by Verizon.

For many government agencies, the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the necessity of digitizing citizen-facing services. With demand overwhelming agency networks, numerous federal and state agencies are turning to software-defined networks or managed broadband, to better integrate modern web applications. “As applications become much smarter, the networks that they depend on need to be more dynamic, redundant and secure,” says James Clevenger, director of sales and business development at Hughes.

Identity architect Jeet Shah shares how a developer centric IAM solution is helping agencies speed up citizen application development with a seamless and secure user experience. “Citizens today expect efficient and effective online services from their government. Whether they're registering their vehicle or applying for a hunting permit, citizens want to engage with the government in a way that's similar to their other online experiences,” says Shah. That includes easier accessibility to services online — rather than standing in line — and more immediate interactions with their government servants. But it’s not just citizens who would benefit. In the podcast interview, he details why streamlining IAM across applications would contribute to a reduction in overall operating costs, deliver services more efficiently and improve citizen engagement.

The pandemic response resulted in state and local agencies making rapid changes to network systems so more government employees could access agency resources remotely. In many ways too, that laid the groundwork for organizations to bring more flexibility to how employees work in the future. Even as state and local government leaders lay out plans to return to the office, a recent Cisco survey found that government workers expressed interest in returning to a schedule that allowed working remotely three days a week — up from the more traditional one day a week, according to Cisco CTO Marc Moffett. That will mean a significant uptick in hybrid workforce demands and require CIOs and CISOs to further modernize their security approach, he explains in the podcast. Sponsored by Cisco.

Last year, modernization initiatives for state and local agencies could be largely categorized as fast, reactive decisions to keep operations running during the pandemic. However, today CIOs and CISOs need to take a step back to consider larger questions around the security implications of those decisions. Security advisor Wendy Nather says findings from a recent security survey can help organizations, regardless of their budget situations, identify which practices are likely to deliver the greatest security improvements. The Security Outcomes Study surveyed nearly 5,000 IT, security and privacy leaders from 25 countries, to gain a clearer picture about which practices correlate to statistically better outcomes for organization.

A recurring security theme through the last year is that in the rush to support remote workers — and deploy cloud-based services — state and local agencies have become more vulnerable to security risks and instances of fraud. CIOs are being asked to implement more cloud-based services that will improve service delivery. However, the success of these programs will depend in part on the identity authentication solution that agencies put in place, according to cloud and identity expert Rob Forbes. “The minute money comes into play the risk of fraud goes up. People are going to start attempting to try and get services and resources they're not entitled to,” Forbes says. He discusses why it is critical to look at modern identity and access tools to help mitigate instances of fraud. Sponsored by Okta.

As the pandemic prolongs the need to enable a remote workforce, state and local governments must rethink how they secure access to resources wherever their employees are working. The need to pivot and refocus security strategies adds an important perspective to NASCIO’s 2020 list of top IT priorities that state CIOs were already addressing, including security, cloud and innovation through technology, says Palo Alto Networks' Matthew Schneider. “States have seen their networks go from a few hundred or thousand nodes, to 100,000 in a matter of weeks,” he says.

The COVID-19 pandemic — while throwing the nation into crisis — also served as an accelerator for agencies to modernize how they interact with constituents and deliver services. “Everybody started to be affected by not just the pandemic and the virus, but how technology and data, and their interaction with it, made them successful or not,” says technical advisor, Juliana Vida. “More and more [decisions are] reliant on data. Those that are making decisions, those are that are deciding where the resources go, if they aren't really comfortable with looking at data and making best use of it across the entire agency … they're really at a disadvantage,” she says. Vida discusses the growing interest in data analytics, dashboards and graphs and why organization leaders should use this interest to push faster into that “data age." Sponsored by Splunk.

Shortages of talent continue to handicap the ability of state and local governments to keep up with growing security threats. The shift to a remote workforce has only expanded the daily onslaught of security threats just as agency leaders face looming budget pressures in the coming year. Government leaders are reconsidering the advantages of managed and professional service providers to bridge their skills gaps and maintain security operations at a lower overall cost. The skills gap is twofold problem for state agencies, explains Tanium's CTO, Gary Buonacorsi. “Retirements are taking a lot of institutional knowledge out the door. And then there is a competitive landscape around modern tool sets for security and infrastructure,” he says. Chris Novak from Verizon adds that working with managed services helps organizations get the best and broadest possible visibility of the threat landscape because they can correlate more data points and understand whether certain activity is anomalous.

The increase in cloud and application adoption is driving changes in network topology that require state and local IT leaders to rethink their approach to security. As government agencies shift to software- and infrastructure-as-a-service platforms, they are realizing they no longer have direct control of their applications. That’s one reason why a security architecture known as secure access service edge (SASE) is gaining rapid adoption, according to Gartner, as a zero-trust solution at the application layer. In general, compute is moving away from solely being within a data center. It’s more of a hybrid- and multicloud norm. And at the same time, users are coming from much more diverse locations. Gone are the days where you could assume that all your corporate users are going to be within the four walls of an office building. Sponsored by Akamai Technologies.

State and local government agencies continue to navigate through an onslaught of service demands while also supporting a workforce that must log into work from home. Fortunately, agencies that had already started embracing the cloud and other digital transformation initiatives prior to the pandemic were able to adapt quickly to meet those demands. But now that agencies have scaled more IT operations to the cloud, leaders need to look at ways to better manage their cloud-based IT services in a hybrid environment. “Agencies have already invested in a variety of infrastructure options. There is some footprint in public cloud, some in private data centers and a range of applications available to use,” says Nutanix's Wendy M. Pfeiiffer. Guest: Wendy M.
