The event was a good opportunity to have important discussions and exchange ideas about the challenges and opportunities of the digital age.

The two-day conference focused on the theme “Sustainable Disruption,” aiming to create a positive impact on the planet, society, and the economy in the long term.

Sustainable disruption challenges traditional models and practices to bring positive change while ensuring long-term sustainability. Technology is important for sustainable disruption and improving traditional industries. Educating stakeholders about the benefits of sustainable disruption is crucial. This includes promoting a shift towards more sustainable practices.

Data protection and management for national sovereignty was a major topic at the Infocom conference in Bangladesh. State Minister for Information and Broadcasting of Bangladesh Mohammad Ali Arafat connected data protection with sovereignty during the inaugural session yesterday.

“All the initiatives of the government are by-and-large technology driven … So, any threat to technology can become a big issue for the government,” said Arafat, while flagging off Infocom Dhaka, organised by the ABP Group, the publishers of The Telegraph, and the SAARC Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SAARC CCI) the telegraph reported.

Experts spoke about how rapid changes in technology are creating disruption and posing challenges to sustainability for corporate entities during the inaugural session, Arafat — a professor of management sciences — took the discourse to a different trajectory.

“If you don’t protect data, you don’t have sovereignty… We need to rethink data protection and management,” said the minister at the session.

“No development can be beneficial for society unless it is sustainable… And that’s the model followed by the prime minister Sheikh Hasina’s government. Today, Bangladesh is ahead of several other countries in terms of its performance on achieving the sustainable development goals (set by the United Nations),” said Arafat, commending his government.

Dhruba Mukherjee, CEO of ABP Group, spoke at the opening of Infocom Dhaka and emphasized the importance of sustainability for achieving positive outcomes in society, especially during a time of rapid technological changes.

These include using technology to achieve sustainable development goals, the importance of digital trust for smart Bangladesh, the role of women in technology, digital banking infrastructure, and factors in cyber security.
