Securing business continuity –
with Samsung Semiconductor’s
Business Continuity Management System (BCMS)

The establishment of
BCMS and ISO 22301
certification builds trust
with the customer

By being prepared for crisis, BCMS allows rapid business recovery and resumption

The BCMS (Business Continuity Management System) is a system that allows firms to secure business continuity and value by establishing effective response strategies and building plans to keep business running and safeguard operations for both internal and external crises.

BCMS refers to the ability to promptly respond under various scenarios of crisis and disasters, so core business operations may resume with minimum impact.

Samsung Semiconductor plans to build customer trust with reliable product supply, even in crises, and continue to protect our reputation, brand, and value-creating activities.

ISO 22301 certification,
a higher level of reliability

ISO 22301 is an international standard that stipulates the requirements for establishing a BCMS. This standard establishes a documented management system for business normalization, such as organization, leadership, response strategies, and plans in preparation for crisis situations. Additionally, it stipulates requirements for executing, operating, and monitoring the system, as well as carrying out continuous improvement. By acquiring ISO 22301 certification, Samsung Semiconductor’s business continuity management system has been internationally recognized for its reliability.

In the future, Samsung Semiconductor will not only deal with traditional risk factors through systematic risk management at the company level, but also will minimize the impact and restore the core business in short time during crises. Through continuous mock training, we will further strengthen accident prevention and response capabilities.
