Serving as Florida’s Chief Information Officer, Jamie Grant leads the Florida Digital Service and is responsible for the state’s CDO, CISO, Chief of Service Experience, and the State Data Center. Tasked with developing the state’s first ever enterprise approach to technology, he will share the progress this far in building Florida’s technology office and why partnership is foundational to its success.
Appointed personally by the Governor, Mr. Grant leveraged the work done by Florida Cyber Task Force, which has become an advisory board with a public and private partnership, to take a brand new approach for a state-wide digital service. Cybersecurity is core to its mission, as the “battlefield” for warfare moves to the modern age. Protecting citizens, assets, information and infrastructure is the building block for stable government services.
Grant will share experiences that will benefit cybersecurity leaders–be they in the public or private sectors. He’ll talk about cutting bureaucracy, budgeting, staffing, working with solution providers, and motivating teams to strive for a meaningful mission.
