Daisy wins ‘Resilience in Infrastructure and IT Service Delivery’ at the CIR Business Continuity Awards

 

We are delighted to have won the special award for Resilience in Infrastructure and IT Service Delivery at the CIR #BusinessContinuityAwards. This award recognises our delivery of business continuity and recovery services including our cloud services and virtual recovery platform, our data centres, our business continuity centres and how we run it all, including business continuity management to ISO22301 standard.

Daisy was judged to be the organisation with the most resilient approach to its IT service delivery. The judging criteria included the planning for continuity as part of a larger strategy and the overall design of IT infrastructure from both the resilience and efficiency perspectives. Special attention was given by the judges, to our successful approach at achieving the balance between security and availability and we were required to exhibit innovation and scalability.

More than 100 Business Continuity staff contribute to our recovery services provision throughout the UK and deserve recognition, so to cut a long story short, here are some of the key people Les Price, Head of Availability Services at Daisy, would especially like to thank.
