    Why state and local agencies need to prepare for cryptocurrencies

    Why state and local agencies need to prepare for cryptocurrencies

    Cryptocurrency has ushered in a new way for consumers and businesses to transfer value. That’s presenting new challenges — but also new opportunities — for state and local governments and law enforcement agencies, according to Kat Faley, director of state and local government at Chainalysis, a blockchain data and software service provider.

    “A lot of people think about crypto as this digital platform, which is certainly true. But we also know that there are almost 35,000 Bitcoin ATMs located in grocery stores and gas stations all across the United States—something that these agencies need to be staying ahead of,” says Faley.

    Using partners to get to the cloud

    Using partners to get to the cloud

    State and local government agencies are looking for more effective ways to deliver public services, including modernizing their IT systems to keep up with service demand. Many agencies, however, are still just starting their journeys to the cloud in earnest — assessing where to start, what’s needed and what to expect.

    While managing large migrations to the cloud may seem like a daunting task, organizations can still realize quick gains by working with specialized cloud services firms and starting with a smaller workload.

    Rise of multi-cloud as an emerging priority and focus for state governments

    Rise of multi-cloud as an emerging priority and focus for state governments

    Though the 2022 list of top priorities for state chief information officers looks similar that of 2021, state government remains in a time of great change as the coronavirus pandemic enters its third year, according to experts from Deloitte.

    Deloitte's Meghan Sullivan and Thomas Beck point specifically to the rise of multi-cloud as an emerging priority and focus for state governments. Using multiple cloud instances and providers has become essential for states to provide robust services for a workforce that remains at least partially remote.

    Building robust identity and access management tools

    State and local governments have made “massive strides,” on their ability to deliver citizen services in response to the coronavirus pandemic, but there’s still quite a bit of work to be done, according to Auth0’s Salman Ladha.

    “I think we’re moving in the right direction,” says Ladha. “Not only has identity and access management jumped in terms of its priorities, but also on the tools [agencies] are looking to implement.”

    Guest: Salman Ladha, Product Marketing Manager, Auth0
