The IRM Qatar Regional Group meets throughout the year to host special events for IRM members.  

Future events

Implementing Business Continuity Management System (BCMS)

BCMS is the best way for an organisation to prepare for potential crises and minimize the impact of disruption. BCMS is often integrated with risk management to ensure continuity of time‐critical and essential services/products and processes, safeguard corporate assets, prepare staff to respond to incidents and recover prioritized business activities.

This webinar will delve into these topics and address how they may be achieved accounting for local conditions.
