One year in.

As a novel coronavirus started sweeping across the United States a year ago, it dawned quickly on state chief information officers that their offices and the governments they supported would have to quickly empty out and equip themselves and their customer agencies to keep working remotely. What followed — a rush to digitize services, modernize aging systems and develop new technologies for tracking COVID-19 and distributing vaccines — only compounded state and local governments' challenges during the pandemic. A year later, StateScoop and EdScoop dive in to how the government and education IT communities have grappled with the health crisis, and how they'll face the future in a special report that features <a href="https://statescoop.com/list/4-cios-on-a-year-of-covid-19/">one-on-one interviews</a> with state CIOs, cities' prospects of <a href="https://statescoop.com/city-government-remote-work-unanswered-questions/">permanent remote work</a> and whether universities will recover from <a href="https://edscoop.com/university-enrollment-crashes-pandemic/">their enrollment crashes</a>.

The cyber coordinators are coming.

CISA has already filled nearly half the state coordinator positions it was ordered to create in last year’s defense authorization bill, its acting director, Brandon Wales, said yesterday. Wales told an event hosted by Auburn University that CISA has already selected 25 people to be state coordinators — officials who will serve as risk advisers and advocates for federal cyber capabilities to the public and private sectors in their assigned states — and that 20 of them have already started working, with the goal of helping non-federal entities defend against threats like ransomware. “We are talking to the state and local community every single day,” he said. “We are expanding that.” Benjamin Freed reports.


New survey to examine digital divide progress during pandemic

Researchers at the University of Southern California will measure how much progress the state has made in expanding broadband connectivity during the pandemic through a new statewide survey with the nonprofit California Emerging Technology Fund, the university announced Monday. About 1,650 adults around California will be asked whether they have access to broadband internet at home and whether they use a mobile or desktop device, as well as demographic data to measure how the digital divide affects certain populations.

The HHS data is evolving, again

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has made more changes to how it collects and presents data around COVID-19, including new options to view statistics based on state, county and regional lines, as well as in multiple file formats, FedScoop's Dave Nyczepir reports. The state view had been one of the most-requested data options, based on HHS's analytics. “Over time, as we got more comfortable with datasets and felt that the quality of the data was good and sound, there was more and more release of open data," said acting HHS Chief Data Officer Kevin Duvall.
