"The ICT continuity practice that we launched recently has proven to be very popular, resulting in the expansion of the ICT continuity team," commented Isobel Nicholas, director of marketing and communications for Steelhenge. "We're delighted to welcome Carl to Steelhenge and feel that he will bring a huge amount of experience to the company and our clients." Carl has wide ranging experience of the financial services sector,retail, broadcasting and the public sector. He is a member of the Business Continuity Institute (MBCI) and the British Computer Society (MBCS). He was also one of the lead authors of the British Standard for ICT Continuity Management BS25777-1:2008 published in December 2008 establishing him as a leading practitioner in the field.
When asked why the ICT continuity services have been so much in demand, Isobel replied; "A critical part of ensuring that a company or organisation is fit to fight through the economic downturn is getting ICT continuity management processes in place. Business managers are all too aware that if they suffer any interruption in service delivery due to a loss of data or ICT availability, there is sufficient competition to take their place. The benefit of having a dedicated ICT continuity management team is that we can come in and work with a business at any stage of their ICT resilience development. Even if there are no procedures in place, we can start with health check then develop strategies and solutions from there," Isobel concluded.
