2021 is a rare year of awakened awareness and more resources for cybersecurity and digital transformation. For example, the United States Department of Homeland Security has cleared the way for $500 million for local governments annually to secure their networks. Another example is the president's $1.2 trillion infrastructure deal. How do we seize the moment and not waste the crisis?
The 2021 Symposium will showcase timely success stories of Smart Cities and Communities, who have risen to the challenges and built digital safety nets to serve their people equitably, sustainably, and cost-beneficially.
