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.
