Foreshore explores off islands strategies

Foreshore will host a Proven Off Island Business Continuity Strategies presentation at the Cricket Square Conference Centre at 4pm Friday, 15 April.

The theme of the presentation will be making the most of the internet for secure online data back up as well as secure encrypted email solutions.

‘We are pleased to be back in Cayman to discuss with the business community how new developments in internet and storage technologies have created off island backup solutions that are simple and inexpensive to implement,’ said Foreshore CEO, Chris Evans. ‘There is clear evidence that the issue of remote storage is becoming increasingly important as a contingency against man-made or natural catastrophes.

‘Foreshore has been providing cross-border disaster recovery services to businesses in the Cayman Islands and other finance centres over the last four years. The company which is based in Jersey, (The Channel Islands) a jurisdiction that has much in common with the Cayman Islands, successfully hosted a number of Cayman Island businesses in the aftermath of Ivan last year.”

The general assembly will begin at 3.30pm. A meet the team reception will be held at the Brasserie Restaurant following the presentation.
