Technology

As technology evolves we are challenged to be creative, to find innovative solutions and to drive change. With technological developments such as cloud computing, increased e-commerce and m-commerce, AI and additive manufacturing (3D printing) come risks, challenges and opportunities. Our expanding global digital economy reinforces the importance of privacy and data security, cutting across all sectors including retail, transport, diversified industrials, health and energy. As such, legal and regulatory frameworks are increasingly challenged to respond to the demands of the technology sector.
