Managing Corporate Risks of the COVID-19 Pandemic:
A Business Continuity Planning and Recovery
Webinar Series for the High-Tech Sector
Since its founding in 1978, SESHA has established itself as the premier international organization promoting the effective communication of safety, health and environmental information to the high technology and related industries. SESHA is dedicated to improving safety, health and environmental performance, preventing workplace accidents, and promoting advances in technology through their website resources, webinars, mini-conferences, technical symposia, and exhibitions.
On March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. As of June 4, COVID-19 has infected more than 6.4 million individuals and killed over 382,000 worldwide.
Due to the highly interconnected nature of high-tech products and services as well as the complex extended value webs that serve these markets, the global high-technology sector seems to be particularly vulnerable to these non-market disease risks.
During times of uncertainty, scientific, technical and evidence-based knowledge can help companies in the high-tech sector understand, manage, and mitigate non-market risks.
Because SESHA recognizes that access to reliable information is critical during this difficult time, we have partnered with Vichara Partners to bring you the best information available on how COVID-19 is impacting the high-tech sector.
Their 10-part webinar series features experts from a wide range of fields from epidemiologists, physicians, and public health experts to industry experts, business continuity specialists, risk management professionals, economists and supply chain managers. As an added benefit, SESHA members and fellows will be speaking at several of the webinars.
The webinars focus on three main content areas:
Understanding the Disease – The first two webinars focus on virus pathology, infectious agent transmission, clinical disease impacts, treatment, and vaccines, as well as the broader impacts of the disease to populations, economies, and society.
Business Continuity Planning and Recovery for Corporate Risk Managers – Four of the webinars focus on disease risks and impacts to employees, facilities, and supply chains. Approaches to mitigate these risks along with decision-making guidance were shared.
Impacts of COVID-19 on High-Tech Markets – Four of the webinars focus on disease impacts to segments of the extended supply chains for high-tech markets, including materials suppliers, component/assembly suppliers, and product manufacturers. A summary of the global market outlook for the high-tech sector will also be provided.
Recordings of the live webcasts are available.
