The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) recognized 30 state government projects as finalists in its 2019 State IT Recognition Awards.
NASCIO, which is based in Kentucky, has been advising state information technology offices for the last 50 years, and this year, 19 states are among the featured finalists.
Finalists are grouped into 10 categories which include data management, digital government, and cybersecurity.
Illinois is featured in the data management category for its project Winning Against Tax Fraud with Data Analytics.
In the digital government category, North Carolina and Tennessee are both featured for government-to-business and government-to-citizen projects.
In the cybersecurity category, Texas and Iowa are featured for their election security and managed services projects.
Texas’ Managed Security Services program focuses on a broad effort to share cybersecurity resources with agencies, universities, and local governments. The program provides technical services, incident response assistance, and risk and compliance services.
