Crisis and Disaster Management

Digital Resilience: Navigating Through the Cyber Storm

In the realm of Crisis and Disaster Management, the Kingdom of Bahrain has an emphasis on tackling digital crises and ensuring uninterrupted business operations to maintain operational resilience in an increasingly technology-driven world.

Governments that are successful in dealing with crises and disasters have in place a team that is dedicated to handling crises and disasters. In addition, they can access data that will allow them to provide the right solutions to handle crises and disasters. COVID-19 was a good example of a health crisis and how the Government of Bahrain and #Team_Bahrain was able to mitigate the potential danger of COVID-19 in terms of having fewer people who were critically affected.

The Kingdom of Bahrain has developed a robust Business Continuity Management Strategy, reflecting its commitment to managing and coordinating efforts during emergencies, crises, or disasters. This strategy is part of Bahrain's broader initiative to ensure business continuity in the face of digital crises. It encompasses a comprehensive approach to crisis management, integrating advanced technologies and innovative practices to maintain operational stability and safeguard critical infrastructures and services.

Central to Bahrain's strategy is the embracement of emerging technologies, a move that positions the Kingdom as a regional pioneer in digital transformation. This focus is not only on managing crises effectively but also on leveraging digital advancements to enhance public and private sector resilience. Bahrain's efforts in adopting and integrating technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), which was adopted in the BeAware App during COVID-19, and advanced cybersecurity measures are a testament to its proactive approach towards digital crisis management. These initiatives are in line with Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030, which emphasizes sustainability, competitiveness, and fairness through digital transformation.

The Ministry of Interior (MOI) has launched the National Civil Protection Platform, an integrated platform as a national project aimed at enhancing public safety in the Kingdom of Bahrain during any crises. The platform allows citizens and residents to have access to information that concerns their safety in a modern way and works to enhance the security culture in society by employing modern technologies.

The Kingdom's strategy incorporates a broad spectrum of sectors, ensuring that its digital crisis management framework is holistic and inclusive. The adoption of such a comprehensive approach to business continuity management, as outlined in the Kingdom's digital policies, demonstrates Bahrain's foresight and commitment to safeguarding its socio-economic stability against the backdrop of an increasingly digital world.
