Forward Together

October 12th, 2020  9:30 am - 12:00 pm | (GMT+02:00) Cairo

These difficult times have showed us how important it is for governments to connect with their community and be able to collaborate across agencies, as well as partners in the private sector.

Join us and our partners to uncover the tools available, the journey ahead, and other governments’ experience as we will: discuss the pathways to preserve trustworthy operations by providing strong protection for citizens and employees identity, cybersecurity, privacy, and digital safety throughout this crisis.

Explore what is needed to enable and promote an inclusive economic recovery by using technology to help governments, enterprises, and small businesses sustain operations and deliver services. All while adapting to new public health norms.

  • Engaging with citizens. Deploying solutions that were able to deal with significant increases in outbound communications to citizens and conversely scalable solutions to service inbound citizen requests.
  • Situational awareness. Using tools that provided methods to capture, consolidate, analyze, and subsequently provide actionable data.
