Event Details

It seems that the New Zealand Government is continuing its digital success stories from recent years, as it reconfigures the COVID-19 pandemic as a learning curve for how to better leverage technology to digitally-enable Government operations and citizen outcomes for the future. Digital innovation in NZ has spread across modernising the cloud-based workplace, increasing agility in response to crises and tackling the digital divide that emerged more so during the pandemic.

These policies form part of NZ’s threefold digital government strategy, which also comprises a strategy for digital public service and a Government digital work programme with trust, inclusion and growth at the forefront. Focused on enhancing citizen literacy, experience, accessibility and connectivity, these efforts continue to drive NZ along the path of innovation and a successful digital transformation journey. Join us at our 2022 FST Government New Zealand conference, as we invite thought leaders from the public sector and tech industry to chart NZ’s ongoing progress towards a unified eGovernment and track its digital innovation pipeline and citizen reception.

Join us where we’ll explore:

  • NZ’s post-COVID recovery plan after the release of their ‘Wellbeing Budget’
  • The implementation of NZ’s internal and external cloud migration strategies
  • Whole-of-government digital transformation
  • How digital resources support the Government’s responses to the distinct needs of citizens
  • Data governance and privacy mandates
  • The future of connectivity in New Zealand
  • A next-generation cybersecurity strategy that is adaptive, intuitive and automated

2022 Agenda
  • How do you plan for a future we don’t understand?
  • How do you identify skillsets you don’t currently have in the organisation?
  • How can agencies learn from each other?
  • How do you look to collaborate as an Executive?
  • In a post covid world, how do we see digital strategies evolving?
  • Citizen-centricity: what do we truly mean by this and what defines a good experience with government?
  • How do we unlock greater enterprise and technology value for the benefit of citizens?
  • Becoming a digital business: the cultural shift required to become a customer-centric, connected, and agile Public Sector organisation
  • What are the key opportunities for leveraging data and insights for greater public value within NZ and how do we place the citizen at the centre?
  • How do we further empower citizen service delivery through data capabilities?
  • Trust and confidence: how do we protect citizens data privacy but avoid critical data not being leveraged due to risk aversion?
  • How do we equip and support wider technology and business groups with the right data skillsets?

In the hope to keep up, how can government agencies set up to tackle the changing nature of risks, on an ongoing basis? How do we improve interactions between the business, technologies, and competing cyber strategy priorities? How can agencies improve resilience and shared learnings when it comes to Information Security? What marks a well-aligned security function within the business?
