The conference, held in Leeds, brought together government departments and suppliers of technology and addressed the issues and challenges facing the UK public sector when procuring technology.
Chief Executive Danny Payne delivered the main plenary session alongside the Government Digital Service and the Crown Commercial Service. He spoke about FCO Services’ unique position as an in-government IT supplier and how this makes us perfectly placed to fully understand the problems faced by government departments and better support them to become ‘digital first’ organisations.
Liz Arneill, Deputy Director in our Global Digital Technology division, delivered the seminar, ‘Security in a Cloud First Environment’ to a packed audience whilst the team hosted a stand in the central hub of the show. Also attracting interest on the stand was the Enigma machine, which dates back to our roots in the Diplomatic Wireless Service.
