"We are delighted to present Accenture with what we believe is the first BS25999 certificate issued in Asia. Already established as an important market differentiator, BS25999 certification provides independent assurance that organizations meet business continuity management best practices. Accenture can now demonstrate that it is doing what is required to protect its business and, more significantly, its clients' businesses,” said Flemming Norklit, Managing Director, BSI Management Systems.

The BSI certification is the only truly independent international standard for an organization's business continuity. It is designed to help businesses develop and implement a robust business continuity plan as well as to make it possible for companies to resume their business operations even under the most trying of circumstances or disasters.  

It is the industry standard for business continuity management system (BCMS), a process that identifies potential threats to a business and the possible negative effects those threats might have on a company's business operations if left unchecked.   

The certification covers Accenture’s systems integration, application outsourcing, infrastructure outsourcing and business process outsourcing services in India delivered from its 13 delivery centers in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune.

Nirav Sampat, Accenture Global Business Continuity Management Lead, said:

“Business continuity management is an integral part of Accenture’s business activities and culture and helps Accenture meet its strategic, operational, contractual, legal and client requirements.”

Tim Weir, Director of Global Asset Protection at Accenture, added.

“The BS25999 certification is an indicator of the quality of the business continuity management system we have put in place to continue to provide services to our clients when faced with business disruptions and compliments our ISO 27001 certification, which is a testament to our information security controls. Our focus on business continuity through the use of consistent processes, metrics and methodologies enables us to provide a secure environment for delivering high-quality services to our clients.”
