FirstNet on State CIOs’ Priority List During Federal Meetings
Thursday, April 27, 2017 | Comments

National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) members met with federal officials from the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Social Security Administration (SSA) and various strategic partners to emphasize the need for strong intergovernmental partnerships between the federal government and state governments.

Nearly 40 state CIOs and state technology officials participated in NASCIO's 2017 fly-in where they advocated to advance NASCIO's advocacy priorities which includes cybersecurity. State CIOs heard from DHS Director of Federal Network Resilience Mark Kneidinger about federal resources available to states to combat cybersecurity threats. State CIOs also discussed cybersecurity and federal priorities with several association partners including the National Governors Association (NGA), National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) and the National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD).

NASCIO's annual D.C. fly-in convenes state CIOs and NASCIO's federal and strategic partners for a day of advocacy and discussion related to government affairs priorities: cybersecurity, FirstNet, flexibility in federal regulations impacting state IT and information sharing. It also serves as an opportunity for state CIOs to establish and strengthen key relationships with federal decision-makers.
