Downers Grove, Ill. (April 2, 2020) — CompTIA, the leading trade association for the global information technology (IT) industry, announced the launch of the COVID-19 Resources Forum, an interactive online forum to serve technology companies and professionals as well as government agencies during the ongoing pandemic.
The forum (covid19.comptia.org) allows users to share valuable information, resources and best practices on how technology organizations of all sizes are coping with the impact COVID-19 is having on business operations. The forum also serves as a place to ask questions, list or learn about events and programs, and benefit from ideas and processes that are working for other tech professionals and businesses.
"CompTIA is committed to helping the technology community stay connected and in step with each other by providing continued access to peers, business insight, useful tools and the resources organizations need to navigate the current environment," said Nancy Hammervik, executive vice president for industry relations at CompTIA.
Users can post information about how the technology industry is responding to the public health crisis, details of philanthropic and community service efforts, and tips and tricks to improve remote working. There are also international resources, a listing of virtual industry events, and sections to ask questions of other users and industry experts.
Technology companies that work with local, state and federal government agencies also can share information and resources specific to the public sector on the forum. CompTIA's state and federal advocacy team is sharing details directly from government resources on the forum as well.
"Our members and the technology industry are doing incredible work in communities around the world and we want to make sure they have a platform to share best practices, success stories and valuable resources," Hammervik said. "The technology industry has stepped up and answered the call on so many levels and we want to empower professionals and companies to continue to serve their customers and the public."
