The FSTGov Future of VIC Government Summit 2024 hails as the 9th Annual edition in the sector, marking both one year since the establishment of Victoria’s dedicated Department of Government Services, and the halfway milestone of its 2021-2026 Digital Strategy.

Significant progress has already been made to position the State’s Digital Government as a leading-edge hub for citizen-centric design within its services, infrastructure, and initiatives.

As momentum grows, several developments are set to take Victoria’s Digital and Data professions to new heights, including an operating model refresh to account for the major advancement in emerging technology adoption, data-driven decision-making, and reprioritisation of national cyber mandates.

FSTGov Future of VIC Government Summit 2024, assembling transformative public sector leaders to discuss:

  • Repositioning Victoria as a national leader in transformative digital services and advancing the Digital Economy.
  • Fostering end-to-end cyber resilience at organisational and sector levels.
  • ICT consolidation to strengthen WofVG core information, cloud and operational capabilities.
  • Enabling pathways to innovation through agile procurement mechanisms.
  • Embedding data and cyber literacy at the heart of a digital-ready workforce.
  • Architectural alignment to reduce complexity and establish common foundations.
  • Data system reform in the delivery of secure sharing and analytics.
  • Insight generation in the prediction of needs, disruption response and critical decision-making.
