PTI Webinar Series: Cybersecurity & Emerging Technology in Local Government

Exploring Critical Issues Facing Communities During and After the COVID-19 Crisis

As the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 crisis continue to be felt by communities around the world, local government officials have hastened their interest in and adoption of emerging tech – from cybersecurity and remote working solutions to 5G and rural broadband – as essential tools to better respond to the crisis and what many are now accepting as the “new normal.”

Discover what local officials and industry leaders did to deal with the historic pandemic in this series of dynamic webinars designed to address the pressing issues that cities and counties will be facing for months to come.
