This year, as we lived through the peaks and valleys of the pandemic and as we continue to hope for a return to normalcy, we saw a few big trends impact municipalities.

  • Remote working was here to stay.
  • Cybersecurity (and getting cyber insurance) became a more critical problem.
  • In-person events and conferences increased, allowing for more meetings, presentations, and networking.
  • Information technology—often driven by cybersecurity needs, an increasingly digital world, and more laws and regulations—remained at the forefront of many conversations in 2021.
