Pacific Governance Series: Webinar 3 – Addressing Cybersecurity risks
11 June @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
PACIFIC GOVERNANCE SERIES: Addressing gendered impacts of COVID-19 to create safe and resilient businesses
Background: The COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting health and economies across the globe. While the Pacific has had fewer cases of COVID-19 in comparison to other regions, Pacific economies are severely affected. Businesses are facing disruptions from supply and demand-side shocks which are compounded by the gendered impacts of COVID-19 on the workforce. Increasing unpaid care responsibilities and gender-based violence are disproportionately affecting female employees and the business bottom line through reduced productivity, and increased absenteeism and turnover. The crisis will have a long-term impact on how companies function and conduct their daily operations. Companies that make choices to ensure that women and men have equal opportunities can lay the groundwork for a quicker recovery, and a more resilient future after the crisis ends.
About the Series: This webinar series addresses the uneven gendered impacts of COVID-19 on the private sector in the Pacific through providing insights from leaders in the Pacific, presentations from experts, resources and tools and implementation support. Participation is free and open to all private sector businesses and entities in the Pacific and is tailored for board members, CEOs and HR professionals.

responsibilities related to cybersecurity, particularly during times of crisis; and manage risks and challenges
by utilizing appropriate cybersecurity strategies and crisis response practices
