Case Study: South Africa Human Rights Commission

Human rights and technology

How Cisco Webex works to respect and uphold human rights in South Africa and around the world.


As a result of the pandemic, the SAHRC team had to work from home. The original product they used did not have remote meeting capabilities, causing several issues. With Cisco Webex, the team could meet remotely and securely.

Technology challenges

  • Lacked reliable video-conferencing solution with remote capabilities
  • Required a secure solution
  • Needed a solution implemented quickly

Impressive outcomes

  • SAHRC employees can now work remotely and host large-scale events
  • Remote workers have reliable, secure video conferencing
  • Host large scale events to reach target audiences anywhere
  • Seamlessly bridged the communication gap caused by the pandemic

Secure and Reliable Collaboration

In contrast to Zoom's security, I realized Cisco Webex is quite safe. Setup for Webex is fast. From our first trial run, we realized that Webex seamlessly filled our communication gap.
