Grants Office America: Modernizing the Healthcare System: Funding Cloud Strategies for Quality Healthcare Delivery - Sponsored by Ingram Micro

Upcoming: Jul 23, 2024 at 2:00PM EST

While the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the use of telehealth technologies, there is still much to be done to modernize healthcare in the United States. Maintaining critical applications solely within traditional data centers proves to be increasingly unsustainable for many healthcare organizations. The prevailing question is no longer "Why Cloud?" but rather "When Cloud?" In this discussion, we will explore the strategic considerations surrounding the migration of healthcare systems to the cloud. We'll delve into identifying the most suitable applications and systems for migration, taking into account scalability, security, and cost-effectiveness. Additionally, we'll uncover strategies for optimizing the migration process to maximize efficiency, security, and cost reduction. Understanding the timing for migration will also be emphasized, ensuring a balance between organizational readiness and strategic imperatives.

Join Grants Office and special guests from Ingram Micro & Keystone Technologies as we navigate the healthcare funding landscape for cloud technologies and discover how leveraging cloud technologies, including electronic health records, can enhance healthcare delivery, streamline operations, and drive innovation. You will not want to miss this informative session.

Grants Office America: Survive and Thrive: Securing Funding for Real-Time Cybersecurity Threat Intelligence - Sponsored by Recorded Future

Sep 14, 2023

Global cyberattacks are increasing at an alarming rate. For many public sector agencies, it is no longer a matter of if they will be targeted, but when and how often they will be attacked. A variety of bad actors, both domestic and international, specifically target states, municipalities, school districts, and institutions of higher education. These organizations are selected for the large volumes of sensitive data they collect and store on their constituents, students, and parents.

While tools are available to assist with detection, prevention and mitigation efforts, many agencies lack the financial resources to develop a robust cybersecurity apparatus. Fortunately, federal and state governments are making significant investments in assisting public sector agencies with their cybersecurity efforts. In addition to being aware of the available funding, including $1 billion in grants available through the State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program, agencies need to fully understand how they can leverage these monies to improve their Cybersecurity posture.

Join Grants Office and special guests from Recorded Future and Carahsoft to learn about the latest solutions to monitor and prevent threats in real-time and how you can leverage grant funding to make these vital security improvements. If you are interested in discovering best practices for securing your cyber environment and tips for securing the necessary funding, you will not want to miss this informative event.

Grants Office America: Investing in the Internet of Things - Sponsored by Samsara

Jun 15, 2023

In a world characterized by the explosion of the Internet of Things (IOT), public sector agencies are being asked to make investments in technology that can increase safety, increase efficiency, streamline processes, and improve services for their target customers, whether they be constituents, students, or passengers. The application of IOT is limitless across the public sector. IOT can be used by school systems to monitor and improve the safety of students and employees. State and local governments and transit agencies are also leveraging IOT to develop interconnected transportation systems that serve as the backbone for the creation of smart cities and communities.

For many public agencies that have limited financial resources, making investments in IOT is secondary to maintaining personnel to meet the most basic needs of the citizens and students they serve. However, investing in IOT can serve as a multiplier in efficiency that cannot be achieved by the addition of personnel. And fortunately, there are many grants available to school districts, institutions of higher education, state and local governments, public safety entities, transit agencies, and utility companies to deploy IOT-enabled projects to improve the overall safety, sustainability, and efficiency of their operations.

Join Grants Office and special guests from Samsara to learn about the grant funding landscape for IOT-enabled projects in the public sector. In addition to information on specific funding programs and IOT solutions, participants will receive tips and discover best practices for securing the grant funding they need for their project.

Grants Office America: Preventing Chaos and Catastrophe: Funding to Secure Critical Infrastructure from Cyber Threats - Sponsored by Fortinet

Mar 15, 2023

The rise in cyberattacks against critical infrastructure affects consumers, government agencies, and institutions. Compromised critical infrastructure can risk public safety and service availability for citizens. Risks such as public transit service outages, contaminated water supplies, disabled emergency communication systems, and even life-threatening power outages can lead to societal chaos and even potential loss of life.

As public services modernize, more internet-of-things (IoT) devices connect to the network improving efficiency while also broadening the attack surface increasing the risk of cyberattack. Keeping citizen services available and safe from attack requires funding to improve cybersecurity. How do you prioritize security among other competing initiatives?

Grant funding is the answer. There are several traditional grants and stimulus funds available to protect critical infrastructure. As smart cities become more prevalent and systems become interconnected, these investments are necessary across all sectors. Whether you operate transit systems, ports, energy grids, 911 and public safety communications, or public water facilities, you can leverage grants to make necessary investments in cybersecurity.

Join Grants Office and special guests from Fortinet to learn about funding resources for critical infrastructure. Our panel of grant and cyber security experts will share best grant options and tips to secure funding, as well as best practices around implementing these projects. If your organization operates or accesses critical infrastructure systems, you will not want to miss this information event!
