QNET’s Chief Information Officer (CIO) Ivan Woo joined the Microsoft Cybersecurity Summit 2021 in Hong Kong as part of the panel of experts and leading voices on cybersecurity. The panel focused on mitigating online risks and strengthening online security for the coming new year. Thanks to Covid-19, hybrid working conditions have exposed people to increased security risks online. QNET’s CIO was one of the few people whose expertise was sought after to discuss the problems and find collective solutions.

Panel Discussion By QNET Chief Information Officer Ivan Woo
As someone who oversees the Global IT and Digital Experience function at QNET, Ivan was chosen as the perfect representative for the panel, to highlight the Microsoft-QNET partnership.
QNET’s CIO led discussions on the key priorities for cybersecurity in 2022, and how to stay secure in a hybrid world when many of us have had to work from home. He has spearheaded several key digital transformation initiatives at QNET which included cloud migration, mobile-first strategy implementation, and stringent data security initiatives, focusing on ensuring our distributors not only get the best e-commerce experience, but also the safest.
With regards to QNET’s approach to security, Ivan has this to say “with almost all our QNET family, partners, and customers forced to embrace the internet for their needs, IT people must step up and take on educator roles. They should explain the risks and educate users about the importance of online security and how to take action to be safe. QNET understand this and we will continue to take steps towards ensuring that we cover all bases in terms of online protection and security.
