Deloitte Middle East has been announced as the Business Continuity Provider of the Year for the Middle East by the Business Continuity Institute (BCI).

The BCI, the leading professional organisation for Business Continuity practitioners, presented the award during its inaugural BCI Middle East conference.

Deloitte reports a growing demand for business continuity solutions in the region, as companies adopt more complex, integrated enterprise environments and become subject to more requirements for security and financial management.

"Having Deloitte Middle East recognised as providing outstanding business continuity management services is an honor for us, and a real testament to the expertise that our professionals in enterprise risk services in general and business continuity management services in particular are providing to our clients in our region," said Omar Fahoum, chairman and chief executive at Deloitte Middle East.

Fadi Sidani, Enterprise Risk Services leader at Deloitte Middle East clarified: "Business Continuity Management is regarded as part of Risk Management and based on the proprietary Deloitte BCM methodology, which is designed on a modular framework that allows us to tailor our services to a client's particular business needs. BCM identifies and provides solutions to an organisation's exposure to internal and external threats in an ever changing business climate. It covers current state assessments, as well as design and implementation related to Business and Operational Resiliency, Organisational Resiliency, Technology Resiliency and Vendor & Supply Chain Resiliency."

"We have worked with clients across the region to better navigate in today's world challenges and measure, manage and control risk to enhance the reliability of their systems and processes throughout the enterprise," added Sidani.

"Our strong capability to provide cutting-edge resiliency and continuity services", concluded Tariq Ajmal, Information & Technology Risk Services leader at Deloitte Middle East, "is delivered by over 25 dedicated and trained professionals (many of whom are CBCI and ISO22301 L.I. certified) who are further supported by more than 200 regional risk professionals. Our team has been involved in both the assessment and implementation of numerous Business Continuity Management projects in both Middle East as well as globally".
