Phoenix opens its doors for Business Continuity Awareness Week

Organizations of all sizes can arrange a time to tour the Phoenix business continuity facilities across the UK, to meet with business continuity experts and have their questions answered. 

Mike Osborne, managing director of Phoenix’s Business Continuity Unit and a keen advocate of BCAW, commented:  

“Everyone appreciates the importance of awareness – within our own organization, along our supply chains and throughout our economy – there’s simply no downside in sharing information, advice and encouragement to help businesses to embrace and further their resiliency, whatever stage they’re at or challenges they face.

 “During BCAW visitors to our centres can find out what services are available, discuss their current BC dilemmas with leading BC experts and discover how they can align their recovery strategies with the advances they have already seen across their IT infrastructures, particularly with the adoption of approaches such as virtualisation, Cloud computing and BYOD.”
