2020 was a landmark year across every measure. Starting with bushfires across Australia, followed by a global pandemic which brought digital transformation off our lips and firmly on everyone’s agendas, the year saw transformative changes alongside devastating losses. The government made significant announcements in the fields of cyber security, hinting at state actors disrupting governments, businesses and the stability of our economy, and announced a raft of new measures to stimulate our “return beyond recession.” Business has reeled, then addressed the disruption with changing the ways we work. The future remains unclear, but in this final episode in the Age of Trust series by Verizon, Verizon President of Global Enterprise, Sowmyanarayan Sampath and Regional Vice President, Asia Pacific at Verizon Business Group Robert Le Busque talk to InnovationAus publisher Corrie McLeod candidly about the year that was, and how we can remain positive and future forward for the next 10 and even 20 years.
Age of Trust
5G's new standards for enterprise will open the floodgates to a host of previously infeasible applications, allowing for industrial-scale IoT networks for buildings, factories, warehouses, ports, and many other use cases. In the future, we will see companies invest in private 5G installations, which may be single-site or spread across multiple locations. In this episode of the Age of Trust series by Verizon, InnovationAus publisher Corrie McLeod talks to CTO of Nokia Oceania Rob Joyce, CEO of Communications Alliance, John Stanton and Verizon’s SVP Enterprise Solutions /5G, Toby Eduardo Redshaw on the considerations for Australian companies. Will this be public versus cloud wars all over again? How can businesses expect to roll out private 5G networks? What are the pros and cons? And where will private 5G deployments make the most sense? The views and opinions expressed by guest speakers do not necessarily reflect the view or position of Verizon.
What is behind the acquisition of Yahoo7 and Verizon media? As the world’s entertainment and businesses have shifted online, what can we expect from our entertainment and information services of the future and what are the technologies driving these services? In Episode 6 of the Age of Trust series “The Future of Media, 5G and IoT” InnovationAus publisher Corrie McLeod talks to Verizon APAC lead Robert Le Busque and Verizon Managing Director of ANZ Paul Sigaloff on the technology that underpins the future of media. They also talk about the “Age of Human”, the personalisation and delivery of content and services through 5G, bringing together ecommerce, social interaction, AR and VR among other cutting-edge technologies and the potential for computerised cars, console-free games that span the entire world and 3D imaging in healthcare applications.
Where previously we focused on security at the perimeter, we will start to see wholesale intellectual property and data security issues underpinning the appetite for a mass shift of human knowledge workers – this means now securing intangible assets – IP and knowledge. In Episode 5 of the Age of Trust series, “Thriving in a Post Covid-19 World”, Managing Director of EverEdge Global Michael Masterson and Client Partner of Defence and Security for Verizon, Nathan Strong talk with InnovationAus publisher Corrie McLeod on how to value and protect data, content, confidential information, software and brands? These are now the most important assets an organisation owns, accounting for over 87% of company value today and are the primary drivers of company growth and performance.
With this year’s Data Breach Investigation Report 2020 revealing almost double the number of breaches from the previous year, we look at the findings through an Australian lens. In Episode 4 of the Age of Trust series, “Securing the Heartbeat of Knowledge – Data”, InnovationAus publisher Corrie McLeod asks The Australian Federal Police’s Cybercrime Operation Commander, Commander Chris Goldsmid and Operations Director of Verizon Prescott Pym; What are the main trends? What are the challenges for industries? What are organisations doing well? What are the weak points? With data becoming even more important for the 4th industrial revolution, will cyber espionage become an even greater risk in future?
As businesses head back to the drawing board to redesign their post-COVID19 strategies, there is a new opportunity to invest in the redesign of core competencies that will rebuild Australia’s global competitiveness. In episode 3 of the Age of Trust series CEO of METS Ignited (Mining Equipment, Technology and Services) Adrian Beer and Head of Solution Architects for Verizon Tony Harb talk to InnovationAus publisher Corrie McLeod on how enterprises will use new 5G driven services to optimise the supply chain while building resilience and will this impact cyber challenges for an IoT device-driven world? What's the role of IoT? How will smart companies be taking core competencies and supercharging them with technologies?
COVID-19 has highlighted Australia’s reliance on long and complex supply chains and there is pressure to both shorten and diversify them. In Episode 2 of the Age of Trust series, “Protecting the Internet of Things”, the CEO of IoT Alliance Australia Frank Zeichner and Verizon Senior Technologist Andy Lamrock talk to InnovationAus publisher Corrie McLeod, on how Australian businesses can diversify supply chains and also use technology to ensure that the economies of doing so make commercial sense. How transformation will coincide with the roll out and adoption of 5G and IoT which will have huge potential to rethink how industry balances volume, technology, and commercial imperatives. And as IoT techniques and technologies move into Australian business and government what are the cyber security challenges posed and how you can protect yourself and your business?
