The NASCIO State CIO Top Ten list shows that IT security strategies and tools are at the top of the list across the states, with security topping the list of priority strategies for the third consecutive year. Cloud services and consolidation/optimization remain at the top as second and third rated priorities.
NASCIO President and Connecticut Chief Information Officer Mark Raymond stated, “The survey results show a strong alignment between strategic plans and technology investment. Data management, cloud solutions and certainly security are demanding our attention. Consolidation and sharing of services will drive needs to improve identity management, governance and optimization. We will carefully examine these priorities as we develop our work plan for the 2017 program year.”
