About DigiConnect Business Continuity and Crisis Management Virtual Boardroom

The COVID-19 pandemic has seen organizations word-wide adapt, implement, and expand upon business continuity plans and related solutions at an unprecedented rate. As world leaders apply restrictions to control the pandemic, business leaders must remain agile to ensure their corporations sustain effectively with a remote workforce, movement limitations and fluctuating client requirements.

In the Middle East, businesses across all sectors are prioritizing their preparedness to face the effects of this global crisis and an unknown future. Hence, it is critical that businesses identify the essential crisis mitigation and management approaches to ensure they remain steadfast in their corporate strategies during times of global uncertainty to keep their people safe and operations running faster.

As a result, both public and private entities now more than ever are urgently adopting best practices, innovations, and solutions to mitigate business disruptions and ensure effective business recovery in the face of a dynamic workforce, mobile assets and a more diverse risk profile.

The Business Continuity and Crisis Management Virtual Boardroom will bring together risk and crisis management experts from both public and private enterprises to discuss some of the challenges they are facing and how innovative technology can help them better manage their response to events and crisis.
