“We are very proud of this achievement. This entire process has enabled us to engrain the business continuity discipline across our organization, and has allowed us to obtain a better understanding on implementing and creating a business continuity strategy with proper response tactics. These standards are quite crucial in a time where all organizations must recognize the threats and opportunities that can arise internally and externally, and know how to react to them. With the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become increasingly clear that in order for organizations to be able to withstand and overcome future disruptions, having an effective business continuity system is a must, and that it should be based on internationally accepted standards such as ISO 22301:2019.”

It is worth mentioning that a total of $4 million has been invested in Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BC & DR) throughout the recent period. This overall figure will be used to showcase BENEFIT’s ongoing BCM efforts in investing in its IT landscape or infrastructure to maintain high service availability.
