I.T. Does Not Understand D.C., and D.C. Does Not Understand I.T.arrow-down

Congressman Chaffetz delivers a unique perspective on the state of I.T. in today's marketplace and how the federal government will play a much bigger role in your future than you ever thought possible.

The federal government spends nearly $90 billion annually on I.T. and it does not work. Congress and the administration will restructure this segment of the greater I.T. industry. But government, as it often does, will also likely implement legislation, executive orders, and governing practices via regulations that will dramatically effect the overall industry, opening new markets and closing the doors on others. It is happening now and you better understand it.

Congressman Chaffetz, as Chairman of the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee, created the first I.T. subcommittee in Congress and had prime jurisdiction for I.T. throughout government. He will address procurement, regulations, privacy, emerging technologies, personnel/immigration, cyber security, and what is happening behind closed doors.
