“Delaying eco-tax refunds is a disservice to well deserving companies” - GreenPak

Any risks that a business faces which can stop its operations need to be identified, assessed and steps taken to mitigate against these risks. Common risks range from the threat of theft and fire, quality scares, the bankruptcy of key suppliers, the departure or illness of key staff and the risks associated with an organisations IT infrastructure. These latter continue to grow and their impact increases. Business Continuity is all about ensuring the continuation of an organisation’s business operations and it is the ultimate responsibility of the board of directors to ensure this continuity and not just the IT Manager.
Shireburn Software are organising a half-day event focusing on Business Continuity on the 27th May at the Portomaso Suite, Hilton Malta. This free event, is aimed at business executives, IT managers, risk managers, financial controllers, accounts and auditors, e-security personnel, systems administrators etc. The event will address issues of disaster planning and recovery, end-point security issues such as USB device control, anti-spam, anti-virus and other threat prevention, theft or loss of PDAs, Smartphones and laptops as well as the implementation of on-line off-site data backup. The event will also include the launch of Shireburn DataSafe - an on-line off-site automated backup solution for servers, workstations and laptops.
The free event is also certified for 3 hours of Continuous Professional Education (CPE) by the Malta Institute of Accountants. Register for the event at
