Because of this, the service is looking to industry for help finding technologies that can help it segment different types of data across networks to save precious bandwidth in conflict zones. Jackson Barnett has more.

What's next for digital transformation?

Ahead of today's FedFWD Summit, Cisco's Carl De Groote spoke with FedScoop about what federal agencies should be focusing on in the post-pandemic time ahead and how they can double down and emerge from this tumultuous period as truly digital organizations.
