We are pleased to bring you the April 2020 edition of Emerging Issues for the Australian Technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) sector.

In this Emerging Issues, we discuss: how the challenge of mass-remote-working in the advent of COVID-19 raises both new and known cyber-security issues; the current regulation of digital advice providers and the challenges for policy makers in Australia; new advertising and sponsorship opportunities for brands as the game and esports sector is forecast to grow; and the uptake of equity crowd-source funding (CSF) in Australia and some hurdles faced by early stage proprietary companies who have undertaken an equity CSF capital raise.

We also highlight the privacy risks and legislation for healthcare stakeholders to be aware of as Australia shifts to a 'digital healthcare ecosystem', and outline the steps organisations can take to protect themselves from these risks.

We hope you enjoy this edition.
