The Indo-Pacific Centre’s inaugural webinar was held in collaboration with the Howard Baker Forum, our Public Policy Partner and DXC Technology, our Global Technology Partner.
Digital connectivity is shaping our modern world and while it is in many ways bringing the future forward, it opens us to a spectrum of threats and challenges. With the widespread use of the smartphone, digital interactions now permeate every experience and transaction for businesses and end-consumers alike. The shift towards increasing economic connectivity has increased the associated risks of cybercrime within the digital infrastructure landscape. Adopting preventative security and defence measures to operate within the cyber world is now a prerequisite across all industries and market segments, as breaches in cybersecurity can have devastating consequences.
Covid-19 has caused a shift in business programs and objectives, with remote work and the uptake in digital services particularly e-commerce, having grown exponentially during 2020. With rising international business risk, corporate cybersecurity operations have jumped to the top of the list of priorities for many businesses that aim to ensure secure connections, prevent network threats and business continuity in the era of the new-normal.
