Research Manager, Government Trust and Resiliency Strategy

Resiliency relies on finding new ways to securely leverage the IT that supports a secure, trusted government enterprise. This includes edge devices, Internet of Things (IoT), digital twins, 5G, and the networks and datacenters that tie everything together. It also highlights the importance of systems integrators that build complex solutions and ensure the security and resiliency of these solutions. Increasingly, IT systems are coming under attack by bad actors. The security of infrastructure is becoming paramount, especially as edge computing systems rapidly evolve. The IDC Government Insights: Worldwide Government Security, Trust and Resiliency Strategies program tracks key technologies in government, with a focus on environmental sustainability and climate intelligence, 5G and mobility, datacenters, cybersecurity, analytics, edge systems, and related services. This includes a qualitative and quantitative analysis of key trends and spending in the government market. This program provides best practice case studies and objective third-party assessments of solution providers to support both government agencies and the vendors that serve them make informed short- and long-term strategic decisions.
