Chris Butler commented:

“Databarracks combines an innovative approach to resilience with an incredible reputation for service.

“It is an exciting time in resilience. Awareness has never been greater following the pandemic and its numerous secondary impacts. At the same time, the ways we make our organisations resilient are changing.

“Technology is improving productivity and enables our people to work remotely and effectively. The other side of that coin is that the increased reliance on technology makes the rapidly growing cyber risk even greater.

“BC, Risk, Cyber, IT and operations can no longer work independently of each other. They need to be in lockstep with the Board for a truly holistic approach to resilience.

“We will be delivering modern resilience services, making organizations secure and able to withstand whatever situation they face. It’s about being able to thrive and succeed.”
