    Connecting New York through Collaborative Innovations and New Business Models

    We speak to those responsible for driving technological collaboration among governments, partner companies, strategic suppliers, and universities to create game-changing innovations that effect NY’s communities. From net neutrality to the future of transportation and promoting tech literacy, New York lawmakers face a lot of important decisions in the coming years.  How do New York officials send the message that they are open to technology, while balancing the needs of the employers and employees whose industries are being disrupted?

      Privacy, Security, and Regulation: Shaping New Policy in Today’s IT World

      Our personal and professional lives are increasingly taking place in the digital space, and with this comes risk to the data and information we store electronically and online. We convene a panel of experts and government officials to discuss how this risk is being combated. How can government and business work together to ensure the safety and privacy of information? How can legislation and government policy help the industry to plan for future risks and breaches?
