A – Digital Transformation in the Public Sector Now


William J. Malik, CISA, VP Infrastructure Strategies, Trend Micro

Digital transformation is more than digitisation – we’ve been doing that for decades. It means using technology to recreate the social and professional elements of corporate culture and work processes, without direct human interaction.

This session examines the role of digital alternatives to in-person interactions that deliver business critical information, securely and safely. From the imperatives under an EU and pandemic lens, to the opportunities for public sector, and how to build and keep skilled teams.

C – How the Public Sector can Reap the Benefits of Secure Digital Communication, Now and in the Future


Steven Clarke, Strategic Account Manager, Zivver

Organisations of all sizes have been accelerating their digital communication efforts, especially since the onset of COVID-19 and the shift to remote working. A common misconception is that digital security is complex, intricate and will require many changes in the way people work. But organisations struggle to combine security with usability, and they need both to reap the benefits of digital communication in terms of efficiency, higher customer engagement and satisfaction.

Join Steve Clarke in this session for:

  • A sharing of experiences of how COVID-19 accelerated the need for digital communication, and the challenges that brings
  • Examples of how the right secure digital communication tools can lower your costs, increase efficiency, and improve stakeholder satisfaction
  • Gain insight and perspective into international public sector organisations who have successfully embraced digital communications and achieved better risk mitigation, cost control and adoption
  • Key takeaways: Resources to better equip yourself, your team, as well as your citizens, residents and patients in how to reap the benefits of secure digital communication both now, and in the future
