50% government IT workers to occupy roles by 2023 that don't exist now: Report
As transition to digital governance gains momentum globally, over half of government IT workers by 2023 will occupy roles that don't exist today, a report said on Wednesday.
 
The Gartner CIO survey found that 53 percent of digital initiatives in government organisations have moved from the design stage to early stages of delivering digitally-driven outcomes -- up from 40 per cent last year.
 
Additionally, 39 per cent of governments expect Cloud services to be a technology area where they will spend the greatest amount of new or additional funding in 2019. 
 
"These findings demonstrate that leadership has become more comfortable with cloud delivery models and has moved away from concerns regarding security and data ownership," said Cathleen Blanton, Research Vice President at Gartner. 
 
Gartner predicts that by 2023, over 80 per cent of new technology solutions adopted by governments will be delivered and supported using an anything-as-a-service (XaaS) model.
 
XaaS contains several categories of IT, including managed desktop, help desk and network services, voice over IP and unified communications.
 
"The model offers an alternative to legacy infrastructure modernisation and investment," said Alia Mendonsa, senior director analyst at Gartner.
 
The move to digital business also means that the IT organisation needs to adapt to new skills requirements.
 
"In many governments, roles of chief data officers and cloud architects are already present. However, it is worth noting that 38 per cent of government respondents did not introduce any new roles in 2018 due to insufficient resources, skills and cultural issues," noted Blanton. 
 
As Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies advance, machine trainers, conversational specialists and automation experts will slowly but certainly replace experts in legacy technologies, the report added.

Facebook security feature revealed users' phone number to others
Facebook is facing backlash over its secure login process two-factor authentication (2FA) where it asked users to add phone numbers, which can be searched by advertisers.
 
The security feature -- meant solely to authenticate your identity on the social media platform - may have left your phone number open for others to see, even to advertisers to bombard you with their ads, USA Today reported on Monday.
 
The debate was initiated by Jeremy Burge, who runs the website Emojipedia, saying numbers added to use two-factor authentication were now searchable.
 
"Facebook 2FA numbers are also shared with Instagram which prompts you 'is this your phone number?' once you add to FB. WhatsApp also shares phone numbers with Facebook. Facebook shares phone numbers with advertisers," said Burge in a series of tweets.
 
"For years Facebook claimed... adding a phone number for 2FA was only for security. Now it can be searched and there's no way to disable that," Burge added.
 
Last September, Gizmodo reported that Facebook also uses security information to target adverts.
 
In a statement to the Guardian, Facebook said it has been receiving questions about two-factor authentication and phone number settings on Facebook.
 
"Two-factor authentication is an important security feature, and last year we added the option to set it up for your account without registering a phone number. Separately, the 'Who can look me up?' settings are not new and are not specific to two-factor authentication,a the statement read.
 
"In April 2018, we removed the ability to enter another person's phone number or email address into the Facebook search bar to help find someone's profile."
 
The 2FA security practice also drew criticism from Facebook's former chief information security officer Alex Stamos.
 
Facebook "can't credibly require 2FA for high-risk accounts without segmenting that from search and ads", Stamos tweeted.
