Priorities for skills development and apprenticeships policy

December 8, 2016 | UK

Sessions will assess progress being made, and next steps, in key areas outlined in the strategy including the development of college partnerships, senior vocational pathways, and measures to encourage employer engagement with Scottish youth following publication of Phase 1 of the Scottish Government’s review into Scotland’s skills agencies. Delegates will also consider plans to reduce gender imbalance and stereotyping within education and employment. Further sessions will discuss the direction of apprenticeships policy in Scotland, with the Scottish Government announcing a consultation on the Apprenticeship Levy due to be introduced as of April 2017 and Foundation Apprenticeships to be rolled out in every secondary school by 2020.

To live up to that promise, the Administration is redoubling our efforts to serve our nation's veterans by ensuring they get the benefits they have earned, as well as expanding opportunity for our service members, veterans, and their families.

Following the pandemic, New York is faced with a number of important technology-related challenges, starting with the need to improve the quality of digital services our state provides, secure our systems from cyber threats that are more numerous and more sophisticated, and recruit and retain the next generation of technology leaders who can build on the progress we’ve made and point the way to a better and more prosperous future. We must act smartly and decisively, and seize on this moment to create positive and transformational change. The Digital Government Summit brings together key technology decisionmakers in state and local government IT to collaborate and share best practices on how to fully respond to these challenges so we can better serve hardworking New Yorkers.

FCW Summit: FedRAMP

August 24, 2022 | USA

As the FedRAMP program approaches the end of its first decade, an increased threat landscape has prompted changes throughout government. FedRAMP program executives have been updating its cloud security offerings to provide a system of security controls that offer a threat-based approach to risk management. The new framework was the result of work by the CISA .govCAR team at Department of Homeland Security that developed a scoring system for each of NIST’s 800-53 security controls. The new approach allows agencies to rank threats and respond effectively. DOD also recently updated its Cloud Security Guide to reduce the differences between Defense security guidance and FedRAMP, and offered new opportunities for reciprocity between the systems. And on the legislative front, Congress has been debating and is moving forward with legislation that would codify FedRAMP requirements and establish an advisory board. Executives from government and industry will examine the new policy developments, how the changing threat environment challenges agencies with limited people and budgetary resources and lessons learned from the log4j vulnerability.
