Public Sector Networks Summit 2019
September 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
With discussions around the Future Networks for Government (FN4G) gathering speed, Government Digital Service’s statement that ‘the internet is OK’, a potential shift away from PSN, NHS Digital’s outlines for the future of HSCN and the launch of Network Services 2 there is a growing emphasis on future public sector network services, connectivity and security.
No one solution fits all, and as public sector organisations by their very nature have differing levels of connectivity, security and service requirement we will look to break down and discuss the varied options open to the public sector’s technology departments and teams. We will discuss the potential of cost benefits, increased efficiencies and improvements to public services which can be obtained by the use of current and future network options.
The Public Sector Network Summit will address these issues whilst also focusing on the new Network Services 2 framework and the added benefits to the public sector that this new procurement model provides. Issues around security, zero trust, perimeter defined software and cloud connectivity will also be discussed in detail to provide
clarity in this ever changing network landscape.
Attracting circa 200 technology and network professionals from across public sector The Public Sector Networks Summit offers delegates the chance to hear and discuss policies, case-studies on excellent work already taking place around the country, engage with solution providers and network with public sector peers from central and local government, the NHS, emergency services, education and the voluntary sector.
