Workforces and schools


Hybrid and remote workforces and schools.


According to Forrester, approximately 18.2M American workers will permanently do their jobs from home post-pandemic, which equates to about 12% of the total US workforce. As employers—government or otherwise—continue moving forward, they must seriously consider which employees should work remotely. nextgov.com

Education network funding


Government funding for education networking and infrastructure:


The ARPA (American Rescue Plan Act of 2021) provides $170.3B for US education, which breaks down to $125.4B for state K –12 public-education programs, $39.6B for higher education, and $5.6B for other educational programs and activities. The act also provides $7.2B for the federal E-Rate program—which is being extended to help bring devices and connectivity to students, educators, and patrons of public libraries.

Cybersecurity


For 2021, the US Department of Defense (DoD) requested $9.85B for cybersecurity purposes—its largest request ever. That means the DoD digital-security budget is more than 52% of the entire $18.78B federal cyber-defense spend. Homeland Security Today
