Off the back of years of unparalleled trial and tribulation, with devastating bushfire seasons and the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Victoria’s citizens and Government are successfully bouncing back, but not without some help from its tech and digital resources that have accelerated the state’s recovery. Budget announcements focused on continuing Victoria’s innovative ways of delivering care, especially for rural and regional citizens, and investing in the TAFE and training sector to create more places for digital literacy and employability skills courses to get Victorians back to work.

As the ramifications of the 2019-2020 bushfires persist, so has the Government’s reprioritisation of digital transformation for public service functions, with commitments to upgrade digital radio and communication services for fire management organisations to strengthen emergency responses and keep citizens safe. The FST Government Victoria 2022 conference will address these moves to reinvest its data and digital resources in policy guidance and future responses to crises, as well as its overarching strategies to enhance accessibility to services and to support citizens.

Join us where we’ll explore:
• The innovation of citizen services in the wake of several crises, and the digitisation of key social welfare functions
• Victoria’s post-COVID recovery program
• The state’s whole-of-government digital transformation program
• The re-engineering of Victoria’s digital resources and capabilities into public services that need it most
• The advancement of omnichannel services and platforms for citizens
• Data governance and adaptive cybersecurity
