Here's a look at the big developments that took place in the APAC region over the past one week.

1. Quora becomes the latest victim of data breach. About 100 million users of the knowledge-sharing website were affected after a "malicious third party" gained unauthorised access to one of the company's systems.

2. Facebook is no longer the "Best Place to Work". The social media giant has dropped from No. 1 to 7 on Glassdoor's annual list, which was topped by Bain and Company.

3. Canadian authorities have arrested the CFO China's Huawei Technologies, on suspicion she violated US trade sanctions against Iran. The arrest has intensified trade war fears.
