California’s statewide vision of technology powering compassionate, human-centered government, is echoing and resonating stronger than ever. With the cascading impacts of COVID, and the ever-present havoc brought upon by Mother Nature, California constituents are requiring more services from the government Agencies need to respond with increased urgency to citizen’s expectation of instantaneous and accurate information.
In California, Gov. Newsom’s administration wants three-quarters of state workers to telework in offices where it’s possible, either full time or part time.

Data has become the universal language of the public sector, from small municipal agencies to sprawling state governments and federal agencies. Citizens rely on government organizations to safeguard this data from potential threats. While all sensitive data should be protected, payment data demands even more vigilance since it can lead to financial losses. Is your payment data secure? Maybe. And “maybe” isn’t good enough in an era of escalating cyberattacks on the public sector.
We’re working to address barriers to digital inclusion. Right now, millions of students here in the U.S. are lacking the connectivity, technology and skills required for success in today’s digital economy. That’s why we’ve been working to help foster digital inclusion through a transformative education program called Verizon Innovative Learning. It’s a key part of our goal to help move the world forward for all through our Citizen Verizon plan.
On-site connectivity used to be simple—your school’s technology infrastructure made it happen like magic. But now that COVID-19 has required millions of teachers and students to move to a distance learning model, connectivity has become more complicated—and all the more critical.

Reliable internet access is essential for finding employment, staying informed, and keeping pace with a fast-changing world.
