The CompTIA New and Emerging Technologies Committee examines policies, legislation, and regulations that govern issues surrounding Social Media, Cloud, Big Data / Data Analytics, Mobility, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Committee Focus NET on the Hill – Engaging in a long-term thought offers the opportunity for our members to interface with Hill staff in a small group setting with the goal of offering our committee as a one stop shop for all emerging technology related issues.

NET and the Administration – CompTIA has worked closely with the Administration on a number of issues, including our work on the Technology Convergence Commission. The offices of the Chief Technology Officer, Chief Data Scientist, and Chief Information Officer are driving government wide approaches to adoption of emerging technologies. NET seeks to advise and collaborate on these important topics.

NET and the Federal Agencies – Federal agencies are at different stages in the adoption of emerging technologies. As a collective expert voice, the Committee will have the opportunity to share best practices/case studies to help provide a framework for technology adoption
