Singapore, Apr 4, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Taking place virtually on 12 April 2022, the 12th global edition of World Cyber Security Summit - ASEAN will focus on topics such as:

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

- Government's Approach to Cyber Security: Safe National Cyber Space;
- Cyber Security and Data Protection for Banking and Financial Institutions;
- HMI/SCADA Dangers and Cyber Security Strategies;
- Automated Hacking, Deepfakes and Other Cyber Threats of 2022;
- Real-Life Use Cases on How to Combat Cyber-Attacks, and much more.

The core objective of the event is to incorporate cyber security in ASEAN enterprises to protect the fastest growing digital economies in ASEAN member countries in the next 10 years. The cyber security plan by ASEAN Member States is crucial to ensuring the integrity of their digital economies. With the implementation of cyber security measures, the digital economy in ASEAN member countries will be able to grow further.

Rising cyber threats and a lack of cyber security leadership are the biggest challenges facing the development of digital economies in ASEAN. With digital economies rapidly growing in ASEAN, the need for cyber security leaders who can implement the best cyber security practices across the region is more pressing than ever.

The surge is causing governments to support sectors such as Telecommunications, Finance, E-commerce, BFSI, Healthcare, Retail, FMCG, Logistics and many more at the World Cyber Security Summit - ASEAN, which will help boost demand for enterprise cyber security products, services, and consumer software in the country.

What next for the continent?

Enterprises and governments are stepping up strengthening internet infrastructure and improving the solutions and assistance provided by the software industry in order to protect their citizens from future cyber-attacks.

Apart from that, factors such as the need for unified cyber solutions, increased internet subscriptions, data disclosure mandates, enhanced enterprise mobility, and increased spending patterns on security forums are fueling the nation's demand for cyber security solutions.

"The economic well-being of ASEAN nations is becoming increasingly dependent on the digital realm. Governments can protect their economies and citizens by implementing appropriate digital security protocols," stated Mithun Shetty, CEO, Trescon.

World Cyber Security Summit - ASEAN will feature a ground-breaking collaboration of experts such as:
- Dato' Dr Haji Amirudin bin Abdul Wahab; CEO, CyberSecurity Malaysia
- Zane Lim; Sales Director APAC, Cymulate
- Colonel Sazali Sukardi; Senior Vice president, Strategic Research Division, Cybersecurity Malaysia
- Leonardo Hutabarat; Enterprise Sales Engineering Manager, APAC LogRhythm Singapore

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

HONG KONG, Mar 30, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Blockpass is delighted to announce a new partnership which is being forged with H3RO3S, the real-life play-2-earn game, for the purposes of identity verification and onboarding. In this, Blockpass will be integrating its unique KYC solution with H3RO3S' platform as the company gears up to launch its app.

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

Designed to promote entertainment, working and mental well-being in socially distant situations, H3RO3S is a play-to-earn gaming system that attaches incentives to the different products, levels and talents. Primarily targeting students, it allows the users to redeem incentives amidst a backdrop of gaming by completing tasks - such as reading over assignments before submission - for other users. Users on the platform can earn up to $1500 per month by completing tasks on the platform, growing from the Alpha stage with $3+ per task to the Prestige stage where they can choose the tasks they are notified about.

Blockpass is a digital identity verification provider which provides a one-click compliance gateway to financial services and other regulated industries. Through Blockpass, users can create, store, and manage a data-secure digital identity that can be used for an entire ecosystem of services, token purchases and access to regulated industries. For businesses and merchants, Blockpass is a comprehensive KYC & AML SaaS that requires no integration and no setup cost. You can set up a service in minutes, test the service for free and start verifying and on-boarding users. Currently with more than 500,000 verified user identity profiles, Blockpass facilitates instant onboarding, and to date over 3000 services have taken advantage of this opportunity to get access to users with reusable digital identity profiles.

"H3RO3S is creating a new and important way to live in light of the recent COVID pandemic which has forced so many of us to change how we operate," said Adam Vaziri, Blockpass CEO. "We're proud to help in bringing compliance and security to this endeavor which has the opportunity to improve the day-to-day experience for those whose traditional social interaction has been impacted so heavily."

"In H3RO3S we believe that it does not matter who you are or where you come from," said Gregory Crous, CEO of H3RO3S. "We want everyone to become the best version of themselves with the talent they are naturally born with. Help yourself by helping others - Everyone deserves to fly!"

Blockpass has grown significantly in size and use since its inception, both in the number and range of users and organizations it has partnered with and the scope of its work. Blockpass continues to develop its digital identity protocol with updates and additions to improve the compliance experience. The existential need for DeFi projects to be regulatory compliant and the recent integrations have led to a surge in interest for Blockpass' On-chain KYC(TM) solution which promises to change the way blockchains enable compliance. Through its recent work with Animoca Brands, Blockpass is developing the ability to provide KYC where the delivery of the verification result is provably sent and shown on a blockchain without sharing the underlying data. This represents a significant step towards the future Blockpass hopes to bring about where identity verification can be proved without revealing any personal information at all.

Additionally, Blockpass' partnership with Animoca Brands has demonstrated how verification and adherence to standards can be proved on a blockchain without revealing any underpinning data - a significant boon for verifying Animoca Brands' NFT prize winners and a huge step towards securing the ecosystem of the Metaverse.The Blockpass App is available from the App Store and Google Play.

Janco Holdings Announces 2021 Annual Results

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

HONG KONG, Mar 27, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Janco Holdings Limited ("Janco" or the "Group"; Stock Code: 8035), a well-established freight forwarding and logistics one-stop service provider founded and based in Hong Kong with a strategic focus on Asia, announced its 2021 unaudited* preliminary annual results for the year ended 31 December 2021. The Group reported profit attributable to shareholders of HK$17.4 million, representing a year-on-year surge of 55.4%.

The Group predominately generates revenue from freight forwarding services, logistics services and e-commerce and fulfillment services. With the growth in revenue from ocean freight forwarding and e-commerce fulfillment services, the Group's total revenue amounted to approximately HK$566 million, representing a year-on-year increase of 16.1%. Furthermore, gross profit increased by 17.8% to approximately HK$76.2 million during the year.

Due to a rebound of the shipment volume to normal after a significant drop due to COVID-19 during the previous year, revenue from the ocean freight forwarding services has increased by approximately HK$34.3 million. Revenue from e-commerce fulfillment services increased by approximately HK$77.4 million, which was mainly attributable to an increase in orders placed by both new and existing customers during this year. However, this growth was partially offset by a decline in air freight forwarding services, ancillary logistics services and e-commerce trading services.

The increase in gross profit was mainly attributable to the increase in e-commerce courier services income which outweighed the increase in e-commerce courier services costs and the decrease in warehouse direct costs which outweighed the decrease in logistics service income.

The emerging technology and innovation applications have taken the Logistics Industry to ever challenging advances. The Group has taken steps in different stages developing appropriate products and services currently and for the near future, including 8035 Tennichi Active Water for civilian hygiene and combating COVID-19, the Group invested in a proprietary conversion and packaging facilities to cater for the marketing and sales of 8035 Tennichi Active Water, which is already available in the market from spring 2022, and creating revenues to the Group. For Cold Chain Logistics which is a high-end reliable temperature and environmental controlled movement and storage for pharmaceutical, comestible, and beauty care products, the solution and demand are hugely sought after, whereas the Group has started procuring the required technology. As for Fintech Logistics, the Group has committed to establish a Logistical Funding Resources to be able to attach into new era of products, and to be prepared for big data solutions, artificial intelligence applications and blockchain composites.

While being ready for the above, the Group is investing huge effort in further developing and securing a higher market share in the e-Commerce and Fulfilment Services division, where the Group sees solid positive growth. Complementing the Logistics and Warehousing Services, the Group is always looking for investments into appropriate logistic hubs for the purpose. The Group is also constantly improving the selection of solutions, to cater for different needs, while improving efficiency and customer satisfaction ratings. Constant improvement and market attention will bring the Group to capture opportunities arising from cross border e-Commerce traffic from China and overseas; and this would be the cornerstone to build the Group being the major Logistics Services Provider in the region.

As a responsible corporate citizen, the Group have been accommodating the authority's initiatives in helping out COVID-19-stricken Hongkongers. A strong testimony to their reliability and capabilities, Janco's fulfilment team has made possible dynamic provisioning efforts and home deliveries at short notice or lead time.

Other than the above, Mr. Po Kam Hi John and Mr. Tsang Zee Ho Paul have been appointed as non-executive Directors with effect from 15 March 2022.

* Due to the escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic and the interruptions arising from both the quarantine and/or work from home arrangements occurred in recent months, additional time is required for the Company and the Auditor to complete their review and audit of the financial information of the Group. Following completion of the auditing process by the Auditor, the Company expects to issue further announcement(s) in relation to, among other matters, the audited consolidated financial results of the Group for the Year.
