“This is a significant achievement for LAUGFS and a true testament of our continuous commitment towards ensuring a robust, secure and uninterrupted service to our customers,” commented LAUGFS Holdings Chief Information Officer, Indika Gunawardena. “Being awarded the internationally recognized standard for business continuity further proves our strength and capability to withstand disruptive eventualities. Our ISO 22301 certification is applicable across our protected and disaster recovery sites. In our journey of process standardization, we were also certified with the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 last year for our Information Security Management System. This year, we will further strengthen our IT services management capabilities by pursuing ISO 20,000 for IT services Management.”
ISO 22301 is an international framework and benchmark that has been developed to guide businesses in identifying potential threats to a company’s critical business functions, and to build effective backup systems and processes to safeguard the interests of stakeholders to ensure continuity of critical business functions in the event of disruptions. It specifies the requirements to plan, implement, monitor, review and improve a company’s business continuity management system, thereby minimising the impact of disruptions.
