Data: The New Currency

Now, more than ever, data is powering and protecting our lives. Location tracing apps, 3D-printed ventilators and health tracing apps are creating bubbles of safe havens within infected communities. Data driven apps are allowing essential supplies to be delivered to citizens, without contact. The world’s largest work from home experiment is possible because of video communication solutions. Children are being educated via digital classrooms.

With digital technology taking over every conceivable part of our lives, what are the implications for privacy? How do we tackle digital fraud and security breaches? Where’s the trade off between personal privacy and public health? We bring in some of the best names in the tech space to discuss what companies can do to build trust and safeguard their companies as data becomes the new currency.

Opening and Welcoming Remarks


11:05 am

How Taiwan Did It  

Taiwan has won praises for its Covid-19 response. It enforced quarantines with cellphone confining. To make new tools for fighting the virus, “hacktivists,” developers and citizens have also been collaborating with the government on a brainstorming site. We speak to Taiwan’s Digital Minister Audrey Tang on the lessons learned combating Coronavirus.


11:20 am

Data Privacy vs. Public Health 

Hong Kong has managed to contain the Covid-19 outbreak with a mobile app that confines people who enter the territory called “Stay Home Safe.” We speak to the app developer on how the technology works and the privacy concerns that come with it.

It’s Doomsday if You Aren’t Digital

The pandemic is accelerating digital change—and no industry is spared. “Contact-free” digital banking is no longer optional, demand for teleradiology spiked, and tech firms are scrambling to scale up. As data becomes increasingly indispensable in the new digital age, how can corporations ensure they have the trust of citizens? How can governments address the trade-off between data privacy and public health? We convene industry leaders to discuss how they are adapting to the new reality.
