TechBlog Team. 16 October 2020, 10:15 am

Here's this week's Tech Media Panel, featuring TechBlog's Paul Brislen and Peter Griffin and CIO/Computerworld's Sarah Putt.

This week: New Zealand, alongside the “five eyes” network and India and Japan, weirdly call for encryption to be broken. Yes, you read that right. Plus, what do we think about Internet of Things security?

Plus the big CIO50 announcements, IBM divests infrastructure to focus on Cloud and AI, Tech in Antartica and Apple’s latest phone. Big week.

Quick ITP update and upcoming events

(From monday) We're pleased to announce that Whitecliffe has become the first PTE to obtain ITP's coveted degree accreditation. Up until now, only Universities and Polytechnics have achieved it so this is a big milestone for the PTE sector. This is also the last week to complete the Skills Survey - we really need your input in this. Details below.

And lastly, sadly, we now won't be bringing you the tech policy debate this election after all. We really did work hard to bring this to you, however with one of the main party spokespeople choosing not to debate the others, and it now being days before e-day, we have no choice but to can it.

We're also still asking for your help as we work to understand the future skill needs in our industry, as much as possible in the current environment anyway. See below for more details.
