When crime/cybercrime happens, disaster strikes or when a medical emergency is literally a matter of life or death, public servants and first responders rely on technology to communicate, make swift decisions and respond with accuracy… and fast.

Join us as an esteemed panel of public servants and first responders share what technologies are used to be successful.  Hear more about crimes that happen online. Better understand the ways in which internal departments, and in some cases, outside technology vendors support them as they aim to keep us safe, healthy and secure.

Your key takeaways include: 

  • Understanding how technology intersects with public servant and first responder jobs
  • Exploring tech skills and competencies needed for public servant and first responder careers
  • Discovering the challenges and opportunities for Information Technology careers dealing with cybersecurity and digital evidence
  • Hearing from our inspiring panel as they share their unique stories of success
