The past 18 months have had a transformative effect on the public sector’s use of technology, as organisations have deployed a range of digital solutions to ensure the continued delivery of services to citizens throughout the pandemic.
From the rapid increase in video appointments via NHS Near Me, to the data-driven NHS Test and Protect scheme, digital services have quickly become a cornerstone of Scotland’s health and social care system.
Meanwhile the public sector has rapidly accelerated its adoption of cloud services to meet the demands of remote working as result of lockdown, leading to extra challenges for cyber security as criminals look to exploit new vulnerabilities.
The pandemic has also led to a shift in the relationship between state and citizen in relation to data, as organisations have retained new information to track the impact of the pandemic and delivery virtual services.
In the midst of all these changes the Scottish Government has released a raft of new strategies including laying out its digital vision, which seeks to build on the great strides forward taken throughout the pandemic and deliver a new wave of innovation.
In light of these vital issues, Holyrood Connect are delighted to present a week of online content examining these via a series of webinars.
