On this occasion, the BIBF Director, Dr. Ahmed Al Shaikh stated, “The COVID-19 developments are unfolding at an accelerated pace and organisations may have a lot of gaps to cover in their Business Continuity Plans. What this pandemic is showing us is that more emphasis should be placed on quality governance and maintaining the right standards in business continuity and information security to achieve operational resilience.”
