FUTURE READY AWARD 2021: The Future Ready Awards were created to recognize the innovative vision that states, counties, and cities have for the impact of technology on the people they serve – specifically those jurisdictions that are laying the foundation for the disruptive and converging forces that are shaping an uncertain future.
CDG presents the Future Ready award to the City of Durham, N.C. Durham continues to emphasize IT governance and managing with data. The use of data analytics technologies helped lead to the creation of a new department of Community Safety and Wellness. Investments in cyber security and business resiliency technologies resulted in stopping a ransomware attack. Finally, as part of their strategy to reduce the digital divide, Durham collaborated with Duke University in fiber connectivity to all city business units and public housing residents.
