Delta was excited to sponsor and take part in the Japan-New Zealand Summit on Smart Technologies held yesterday at GridAKL. This fantastic event was hosted by Unitec and was part of CERT NZ’s Cyber Smart Week 2018
We got to hear about recent opportunities and challenges for smart societies, enabling technologies, and we got to discuss and network with decision makers, developers, and researchers from industry, government, public organisations, and academia. We covered everything from cyber warfare to smart health care and how Japan and New Zealand can collaborate further in the future in terms of R&D and industry changes that need to take place.
Our own Avani Vyas led an interesting session on insurance solutions for intellectual property (IP) and was able to include the delegates in a discussion around how intangible assets are increasingly becoming a source of competitive advantage for businesses and the response of insurers in addressing the risks associated with IP. She also touched on how cybers risks are evolving and how Delta is combing pre-loss and post-loss services to present an integrated risk management solution.
A great day with many new connections made! We look forward to the next Summit on Smart Technologies being held in Japan in 2019.
