The pandemic has crippled most businesses, the climate of fear and uncertainty seems to be an inevitable outcome as many of us are struggling to cope with the new norms. How should businesses prepare themselves to move forward in the post pandemic world?
The private sector is the engine of growth in the Philippines. To attract new investment opportunities, private sector participants must play an active role in attaining appropriate levels of talent and embrace technology for the economic growth for the country. Leaders should work cohesively to align with the government to achieve its “Digital Philippines” vision – (1) Safer, Protected, and Reliable ICT, (2) ICT-Enabled Government, (3) Greater Public Reach, and (4) ICT Capacity Development (source GOVPH)
“The Digital Transformation Journey and Cyber Security Strategy” should be viewed as a business imperative for any successful business transformation. Innovative leaders will create the “Digital change wave”, thereby staying ahead of its competitors and in turn increasing efficiencies and ultimately increasing the bottom line.
As technology advances, we will see threats and risks on a local, regional, and international level. Legacy systems will no longer be able to support and protect data sovereignty. Sophisticated technologies such as the Next Gen 3.0 DLT for e-governance, e-identity and e-wallet are cutting edge technologies enabling the next generation Society based Cyber solutions, integrated into society 5.0.
“The Philippines with a young tech savvy workforce is in a sweet spot to be among South East Asia’s leader in the next digital revolution. Government and private business alike should embrace technologies such as Next Gen 3.0 DLT to enhance e-governance, protect data sovereignty and eliminate security vulnerabilities. Innovative leaders in South East Asia should harness the use of technology to pave way towards society 5.0” – Ariel Victoria
