Iowa Ag Connection - 10/30/2020

The State of Iowa was recognized as a leader in disaster recovery by the 2020 Digital States Survey. Along with two other states, Iowa was praised for, "The ability to recover from and maintain continuous IT and business operations during disasters and crisis conditions." In 2018 and 2019 Iowa's disaster recovery capabilities were put to the test. Flooding in the main data center led to a massive overhaul that will have a long-term impact on the safety and security of data in the state.

On the 2020 Digital State Survey, Iowa received a "B" grade. The state was praised for ongoing investment in broadband infrastructure, Master Data Management projects, cybersecurity initiatives, and digital citizen engagement.

"Survey results revealed cybersecurity, budget, and cost control, citizen engagement and experience, and cloud computing are the states' top four priorities, with IT collaboration and IT governance moving up to fifth and sixth," said Teri Takai, co-director of the Center for Digital Governance. "We are also seeing emerging best practices from states around addressing the digital divide and infrastructure modernization."

The Digital States Survey was designed to highlight best and emerging technology practices that serve as models and/or can be shared across state borders.
