In addition, ABCA 2008 seeks to facilitate networking amongst business continuity professionals and associated parties, to exchange ideas and updates in the growth and development in the industry.

“The Asia Business Continuity Awards is not only opened to local Singapore organizations but those in the region as well. This year, we see a growing number of international entries for the awards and this is definitely a positive sign that interest in the award is growing.” said Kenny Seow, the chairman for the ABCA 2008 awards presentation ceremony who is also one of the judges. “The entries received were of very high quality and the panel of judges had a very difficult time in the scoring and selection process. After several rounds of discussions and conference calls, the judges finally agreed on the winners. The scores of some of the nominees are very close indeed!”

“I congratulate BCP Asia for taking the initiative to organize this award and thank those who have contributed in one way or another to make this year’s award a success. I would like to encourage more organizations and BCM practitioners to participate in the awards next year. It is only through your participation that we will be able to bring the business continuity industry to greater heights.” Kenny continues.

Pankaj Rai, BSI Management Systems South East Asia Managing Director, Winner of Product or Service Innovation of the Year said, “On behalf of BSI, I am delighted that the ABCA has honoured BSI with this award for its work in business continuity management. BSI recognized the vital importance of BCM in protecting the resilience of organizations throughout the world and developed a number of ‘value-add’ solutions around the BS 25999 standard, including certification and training services. Through these services, organizations of any size, industry and geographic location can implement a proven business continuity plan and clearly demonstrate to all their stakeholders that they meet industry best practices for BCM.”

According to the winner of individual awards category, Lifetime Achievement – Wong Tew Kiat from Singapore Computer Systems Ltd (SCS): “I’ve been in the Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) industry for 20 years and I am still enjoying each day, learning and enriching myself during the numerous discussions or sharing sessions with my team members, customers, industry partners and competitors. There are just so many incidents and life experiences we can learn from one another. I strongly believe that all organisations, and even nations, should be equipped with a sound BC/DR plan. The plan should incorporate the best practices in light of the natural catastrophes, terrorism and geopolitical tension and should be tested and retested to further refine and ensure that all areas are well-covered,” SCS is also the winner for Business Provider of the Year (BCM Services).
