GISF Webinar: Communications Technology and Humanitarian Delivery – Challenges and Opportunities for Security Risk Management

EISF teamed up with DisasterReady.org to host a webinar entitled ‘Communications Technology and Humanitarian Delivery: Challenges and Opportunities for Security Risk Management’. The webinar launches GISF’s new paper of the same title, and features engaging discussion on opportunities and challenges of communications technology in humanitarian delivery from Imogen Wall (the paper’s co-editor) and Rory Byrne (Founder and CEO of Security First).

Imogen Wall discusses affected communities and communications technology, social media in the developing world, hacking, disinformation, and data trails. Rory Byrne discusses how many organisations that use communications technology and social media make mistakes by not integrating them in a secure manner.
