Tourism and business travel can only recover from the COVID-19 pandemic crisis by mitigating the risk of importing COVID-19 across borders.

Anticipating the demand for innovative health security solutions, WCC has extended its HERMES Border Security solution to include a COVID-19 Health Dashboard.
The events triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic during the last year have led most of us to evaluate our lives, and in some cases, our careers. Many have done so by choice; others have needed to do so in order to survive.

In this second blog of our series on Global Security, we take a look at European security. Just as on the global stage, the main challenge is how to close information gaps between security and information systems used by diverse law enforcement agencies. The EU needs to achieve interoperability between law enforcement agencies and police forces on the national level while closing security gaps on the EU regional level.
In our blog, we take a look at the issues raised in a World Bank article on the impact of COVID 19 on employment in Latin American and Caribbean countries. Estimated job losses in the region currently total 47 million. WCC’s knowledge-driven Employment Solutions can play a key role in economic recovery in countries hit hard by the crisis.
