Public Sector: Culture, Success, Efficiency
Every IT department finds themselves having to justify the cost of the technology they’re trying to implement. Within the public sector this already low budget usually finds itself at the bottom of the priority list, often in battles for budget with the rest of the organisation. What’s worse is the whole world knows about the minimal resources you have available, meaning your systems are vulnerable to an array of cyber-security challenges.
In this season of Deskflix you will from peers such as Jon Howard, Executive Productive Manager of BBC Design and Engineering and his use of deep learning technologies. We’ll also be discussing how to combat the skills shortage with the Met Office, HMRC and Coventry County Council.
Join us for the fifth episode of Deskflix to learn how to create a culture which enables success and efficiency despite managing: low budget, skills shortage, working with outdated equipment and regional remote teams.

The internet is a force for good; however it hasn't been designed specifically for children. With their own smartphone, young people now have access to a glittering array of experiences which they will explore more freely than they would on a shared device. This session is a walk through how deep learning technologies have been combined with behavioural science on a public service product that supports and guides children as they make their early online journeys.

Covid-19 not only caused a health pandemic but a cybercrime pandemic too. Its effects have dramatically changed the way Public Sector works, and these changes are here to stay. The accelerated pace of digital transformation, remote access infrastructure, the drastic move to the cloud have already gotten the attention of cybercriminals. The dramatic changes in your company’s infrastructure present a unique opportunity to assess your security investments. Are you really getting what you need? Are there areas you’ve overlooked?
