Your data is your agency’s most valuable asset – and that means good data management is more important than ever. City and county governments collect ever-growing amounts of information. It’s used for everything from reporting program outcomes and proving compliance, to strengthening public safety and driving economic development. Unfortunately, this data also is under growing threat from ransomware attacks and other criminal activities. Now is the time to move toward mature data management processes that improve data resiliency and protection, while reducing cost and complexity.

On March 25, the Center for Digital Government will host experts from Commvault and the city of Sparks, Nev., for an interactive discussion on managing and safeguarding your data. You’ll learn why this issue is getting more attention from local government leaders, and you’ll hear practical advice for improving data management in your organization.

Register now and join us March 25 at 10 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern for new insights on:

-- Moving toward a holistic data management strategy

-- Minimizing risks created by expansion of remote work and digital service delivery

-- Automating and improving data backup and recovery
