Vodafone Qatar, Gold Sponsors of the first ‘Qatar Business Continuity Conference’ organised by the BCI Qatar Forum, took part in the event that discussed best practices in the area of ‘Business Continuity and Risk Management’ across various public and private entities.
Vodafone also received an award in recognition of the company’s contribution in the Business Continuity space in Qatar, the company announced in a statement yesterday.
The one-day conference under the theme ‘Stability and Achievements’ took place at the Four Seasons Hotel Doha under the patronage of HE the Minister for Energy and Industry Dr Mohamed bin Saleh al-Sada, and was attended by a large number of entities.
In a key-note presentation, Arnab Mukherjee, Vodafone Qatar’s Business Continuity manager, demonstrated how an organisation can become resilient and cited some practical insights and case studies of a resilient organisation.
“The ability to effectively respond to and manage emergency consequences in a timely manner is essential to ensure your organisation’s survivability in today’s fast-paced business environment.
“With the emergence of new threats, including cyber-terrorism and bio-terrorism and the increasing exposure of organisations to traditional threats such as fraud, systems failure, natural disasters, product recalls and more, a resilient approach to business strategies and agile restoration of your business operation is essential,” he said.
Vodafone has an established business resilience programme across its global footprint to ensure it achieves effective and timely response to any emergency or crisis involving its critical business operations.
Each local market and group entity programme is aligned with international standards and local legislation. Vodafone’s senior management is actively engaged in its Business Continuity and Crisis Management programme, which is subject to an annual review and communicated within the organisation.
