DOST Pushes ICT Workshop for Gov’t Employees


The digital age is laden with opportunities and risks. It is now a directive of the government that public officers be on top of the most recent advancements in information and communications technology (ICT) as well as familiar with the threats that exist online.

In line with this, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) ICT Office calls for the ICT training of government professionals through the TechTalks for Civil Servants symposium on 29 June 2015, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Audio Visual Room, Mezzanine, PHILVOLCS Building, Carlos P. Garcia Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City.

Organized by the National ICT Competency Management Service (NCM), the TechTalk for Civil Servants is a whole day event for government professionals from national government agencies (NGAs), state universities and colleges (SUCs), as well as local government units (LGUs) in Metro Manila.

Some of the topics to be discussed are on modern business styles, social media personal branding, mobile learning and digital scammers. Meanwhile, TechTalks speakers hail from both public and private sectors.

TechTalks for Civil Servants is part of the series of events launched in line with the 2015 ICT Month.
