21st Conference on E-Government
"Effective and Secure e-Governance"
8-9 March, Sofia Hotel Balkan, 5 Sveta Nedelya Square, Sofia, Bulgaria, Royal Hall

Organizers: ICT Media & ISACA Sofia Chapter

Under the honorary aegis of Mariyana Nikolova, Deputy Prime Minister for Economic and Demographic Policy; Chairwoman of the Cybersecurity Council

Information and communication technologies permanently entered into all areas of social and economic life, and at the same time, the expectation of the citizens and the business for the digital transformation of public institutions continue to grow. In order to meet them, as well as to reflect the developments of the regulatory and institutional framework for e-governance on local and European level after 2014, last Summer the Cabinet adopted an Updated Strategy for the Development of Electronic Governance in the Republic of Bulgaria 2019-2023, together with an Updated Roadmap for its Implementation and the Concept for Registry Reform.

The changes address the current challenges associated with the dynamic digital environment, as it is explicitly stated in the Updated Roadmap that "it is expected that every citizen will be able to communicate effectively with the public administration electronically by receiving easily, securely and reliably personalized administrative services."

In addition, the large-scale cyber-incidents over the past year, which also affected the state administration, have drawn the public's attention to the cybersecurity of public information systems, while network and information security has become one of the top priorities of the administration. In this regard, it became imperative for the state institutions to align their activities with the Ordinance for the Minimum Requirements for Network and Information Security before November 26, 2019, to protect e-Governance from digital challenges.

What lies ahead of national e-governance until 2023, what's the current stage of the public administration's digitization, what are the good examples of technological solutions applicable to the sector, how will the institutions ensure the information security and protection are among the topics of the 21st edition of the National e-Government Conference.

Traditionally the conference has been organized in cooperation with State e-Government Agency, National Association of the Municipalities in the Republic of Bulgaria, Ministry of Transport, Information Technologies and Communications, Network of Associations of Local Authorities in South-East Europe (NALAS).

The targeted audience of the event is as follows: ministers, deputy ministers, chief secretaries and IT directors of state agencies, district governors, mayors and deputy mayors, IT specialists of the Bulgarian administrations and representatives of leading worldwide and Bulgarian companies in the field of the ICT sector.
