ContinuitySA wins IRMSA Award with Resilience 2.0

Nov 6th, 2019

ContinuitySA was named the winner of the IRMSA 2019 Industry Specific Initiative Award for the category,” Professional Services, Training Providers, Consultants and Auditors”, for outstanding contribution to risk management at a gala event that took place in Johannesburg on Friday 1st November 2019.

ContinuitySA’s won the Award for its approach and methodology, Resilience 2.0, which takes business continuity beyond the confines of an organisation and addresses the cumulative requirements for an industry sector or complex supply chain web. It enhances the ability of participating organisations to anticipate and respond to disruptive events through structured and directed collaboration.

In winning the IRMSA Industry Award, ContinuitySA has affirmed the value it adds to business continuity and business professionals who are serious about keeping their organisations up and running, no matter what.

“We are extremely proud of our Resilience 2.0 methodology which significantly strengthens our service offering and demonstrates our capability to venture beyond the siloes of individual businesses into organisations in a collaborative network,” said Michael Davies, CEO, ContinuitySA.

Traditionally, business continuity programmes have focused on an organisation in isolation and its capability and plans to recover from disasters. In the light of recent business trends, an introspective view alone and isolated implementation is no longer enough” adds Mr Davies. Business continuity and resilience must expand beyond the confines of one organisation and be catered for at a broader level.

The methodology focusses on understanding the integrated nature of risks and triggers in a business ecosystem and establishing suitable structures, mechanisms and capabilities for multiple entities to jointly and effectively respond to disruptive events. In addition, it enhances the day to day incident management to prevent unwarranted escalation of operational incidents into crises.

In receiving this IRMSA Award, ContinuitySA moves forward again in driving awareness of, and diligence in, business continuity for African companies on a broader level.
