Samsung Electronics today announced that its Device Solutions (DS) division has achieved ISO 22301 certification, the international standard for Business Continuity Management System (BCMS). The ISO 22301 standard, awarded to Samsung by the British Standards Institution (BSI), certifies that an organization’s ability to resume operations after a crisis, or its resilience, meets global standards.
“We will continue to improve our business resilience and maintain a robust business continuity management system to manage not only conventional crises, but also new emerging issues such as global supply chain disruption,” said Taeyang Yoon, executive vice president and chief security officer (CSO). of the DS division of Samsung Electronics. “Thanks to these efforts, our customers can rely on our cutting-edge semiconductor technology, even in the most unexpected of circumstances.”
A BCMS helps organizations ensure business continuity by systematically defining the steps to resume operations after an unexpected crisis or disaster. The system not only takes care of the initial emergency response, but also focuses on recovering and resuming its core business activities as soon as possible. ISO 22301 is the international standard for BCMS, representing the highest level of commitment to business continuity and disaster preparedness.
