Stepping Up: Uncover Your True Leadership Potential @ Webinar

Tuesday| May 4, 2021 | 10 am to 11:30 am

Leaders come from all walks of life, and they create businesses and communities through their actions. Every action a person takes, every conversation they have moves them ahead as a leader. In this workshop, participants will learn about their unique leadership style and learn how to improve on the strengths they already have—even if they don’t think they’re a leader! Leadership is much more than a “to-do” list; effective leadership is an art and a science and, most importantly, it can be learned. It can be improved through skills, practice and self-knowledge.

At the end of the workshop, participants will have their unique answers to these questions:

  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of my communication style?
  • How do I manage change, transition and transformation in my business? In my life?
  • What are my core values and how do they show up when I’m leading?
  • Where can I find the courage and support to develop as a leader?

How to Protect Your Business from Cyber Threats @ Webinar

As the business world relies more and more on technology, strengthening cybersecurity becomes increasingly important. Cyber attacks can impact businesses of any size and leave them vulnerable to financial losses and reputational damage.

CyberSecure Canada helps small and medium organizations protect themselves from cyber threats by introducing them to 13 baseline cybersecurity controls designed to be straightforward to implement yet effective.

The voluntary cybersecurity certification program is a collaboration by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) and the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security and the Standards Council of Canada. Organizations that implement the 13 controls can receive a government-backed certification that shows their customers, clients, investors and partners their valuable data is protected.

Women’s Enterprise Centre is hosting Lisa Monozlai, Economic Advisor at ISED, to show you how you can improve your business resiliency and competitive advantage by becoming CyberSecure certified. In this webinar, Lisa will share information on:

  • The 13 baseline cybersecurity controls
  • The process and benefits of CyberSecure certification
  • Free resources available to help improve your cybersecurity posture

Lisa is here to help you get the answers you need on the CyberSecure certification process! Bring us your questions or send them ahead of time >>
