In a world where change is the only constant. One of the fundamental change drivers is the realisation of how important digital transformation is to work and life. At its core, digital transformation isn’t about the big multinational companies. It’s about using the latest technology to do what you already do – but more efficiently, remotely and securely. 5G, Cloud, Datacenters and Cybersecurity are the essentials of a Digital Economy and any organisation considering digital transformation.

Inside Asia – Technology & Market Next Moves will discuss the current and future outlook of 5G, Cloud, Datacenters and Cybersecurity in Asia. How can businesses still be in control when they embrace the cloud? Why many are aware about cyber-security threats, but not adopting defensive practices? Will edge computing be fast tracked? How will data centers and telco operators adapt to a volatile and heightened network load? Will data center investments and 5G roll-outs resume as aggressively pre-crisis.

Are cloud services and data centers prepared?

With this increased traffic comes additional expectations and pressure on cloud services and data centers. 

In recent days, some cloud services have gone down following an increase in usage caused by more companies enforcing work from home policies. Microsoft Teams, the collaboration platform experienced an outage lasting over two hours. While the video conferencing service Zoom also suffered delays in their service due to higher demand this week.

The need for these services is apparent when operators in data centers have been named as essential staff in the Philippines, UK and California, which begs the question whether infrastructures across Asia are prepared for the potential of more lockdowns and greater remote working.

Is your business safe from cyberattacks?

The threat of global cyberattacks is also rising, as online criminals take advantage of the fear and unrest caused by the coronavirus outbreak. This week, news spread that the World Health Organisation was the target of elite hackers DarkHotel whose operations were traced to East Asia.

This cyberattack comes after a warning from the WHO of criminals disguising themselves as officials to steal money or sensitive information.
