It’s always an editorial dilemma – Do we start with the event with the biggest business continuity impact? The event that was the most unbelievable? For the 2016 Business Continuity Review, we have some difficult choices, including the massive cyberattack of the toasters, the most powerful man in the world (soon) trying to carve up the Internet, and a smartphone threatening the health of a national economy.

How To Ensure Your Business Is 100% Safe
Your business is only as strong as its weakest link.
As an executive in any business, it is understandable that you want to ensure it is 100% safe, because your business is only as strong as its weakest link.
You know that if you have a disastrous incident it will cause irreversible damage to your company’s good name, your shareholders, board of directors and industry regulators. It will also cause severe legal ramifications. Sure, you can insure the physical assets of your business with an insurance policy, but it’s not the desks, chairs and IT infrastructure that keeps you in business, it’s your business processes and your staff.
There are strong commercial advantages to having a business continuity process in place, including boosting your brand perception, marketability and adherence to regulatory requirements.
We help you make sure that an incident won’t affect in your business by providing you with the industry skills, expertise and knowledge to ensure that your business goes beyond mere compliance to business continuity and recovery standards, through to a workable plan.

Can these two items coexist? Business continuity is about keeping things going, whereas business transformation is often about breaking things (figuratively, if not literally) to get out of a rut and into a new, more competitive mode of business.
5G networks is on the horizon now, destined to increase mobile data transfer speeds and reduce communications latency compared to current 4G.

“I’m glad to hear OpsCentre is doing so well. You deserve to as you guys were the most professional group I worked with during my time with ODPP.”Sam O’Brien, Manager – ISMS & BCP Programs, NSW Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions
“The knowledge you’ve amassed about our IT environment in such as short space of time is incredible. We have been trying to develop this same knowledge internally for years, and you have done so in just a matter of weeks”Wayne Ruckley, Executive Director IM&T (CIO), NSW Department of Justice
“Thanks as usual for all of your exceptional work. This is truly where it’s at”Julian Galliard, Manager – Risk and Compliance, Integral Energy
