The recent NHS hack highlights just one of the new challenges government faces as it enters the digital age. Digital public services need to be easy to use, secure and save money. But someone needs to be responsible for setting and enforcing standards, driving the improvement of services and safeguarding against cyberattacks. So, who is it?
To discuss this issue, our panel included:
- Ciaran Martin, CEO, National Cyber Security Centre
- Janet Hughes, Digital Leadership Director, Doteveryone
- Bryan Glick, Editor in Chief, Computer Weekly
Daniel Thornton, Programme Director at the Institute, presented the IfG's new report, Improving the management of digital government, and chaired the discussion.
