At the same time, the digital landscape became an essential tool for the continuity of business processes and livelihoods. With so much dependency on digital mediums, the subject of cyber security also became a rising concern, more so than ever. On 18 February, 2021, AMCHAM brought expert speakers for a webinar on the state of cybersecurity in 2021.
