Recently Jack Huffard guest blogged for The Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC), the largest technology council in the United States. In Modernizing Government Technology, Jack discusses the Modernizing Government Technology Act of 2016, which addresses the need to replace legacy IT in the federal government.
“If it works, don’t fix it” no longer applies; legacy systems can harbor security weaknesses and vulnerabilities that can cripple an agency. The MGT Act would help agencies fund projects to replace outdated systems, to transition to the cloud, or to enhance information security technologies. Jack explains how the IT modernization funds would work in this informative blog.
Jack will also be participating in the Collaborating for Cyber Success Panel at NVTC’s Capital Cybersecurity Summit on November 2-3, 2016 at the Ritz-Carlton Tysons Corner in McLean, VA.
