The world has been taken by surprise with COVID-19, which has had a significant impact on almost every aspect of our society. From working from home, remote learning to everything we have accepted in the past few months as the new life style norms, this online session looks at how different sectors such as public policy, technical operations and collaboration platforms adapted to allow the region to continue to function. The discussions, driven by experts from the community will provide an interesting insight into the way the Internet operates.
