Global Continuity South Africa provide expert advisory, audit and consulting services with a  focus on the implementation of turn key solutions , that allow clients the flexibility to analyze and assess a wide range of challenges and overcome their specific strategic needs.

Todays business must must shoulder the challenges of a constantly changing environment.  The outlook is anything but certain across numerous indicators.  Lockdowns are a reality, while cyber-attacks highlight the need for greater cyber-crime intelligence.  Economic recession and social pressures loom large, with greater job losses and increasing crime statistics.   On the legal and regulatory front, a clamp down on privacy and security concerns, are pushing the executive further under pressure.

Faced with these changes, todays leaders need the tools to manage and mitigate far more risks, on far more fronts, than previously.  The new leadership of 2021 need to position themselves as a source of enterprise resilience, enabling the organization to rejuvenate and rebound from the year-that-was, while at the same time preparing for unforeseen needs and demands.

Our specialists will guide your team to adapt to disruptive change, by identifying gaps between current operations and where the organisation could be in the new scenario.   New and emerging possibilities must be explored, and planning to improve capabilities to achieve that vision.

The Global team is perfectly positioned to address these areas, and are certified as trainers, implementers and auditors, on a wide range of standards and frameworks.

Global is available to assist with your Information Security, ITIL, privacy, OH&S, ICT Governance, Project Management, Compliance, Business Continuity, Quality and Risk Management.

Our adoption of the ISO standards frameworks in our professional projects, ensures consistency across all our projects and mutually secure interdependencies between ISO, ITIL, COBIT and various other standards. Preparing your management systems correctly from the ground-up cannot be understated, when the compliance and regulatory list looks set to expand.
