DISCO adds pandemic diseases to its list of possible threats Surveillance audit for "BS25999-2:2007", the Standard for Business Continuity Management System is conducted

DISCO Corporation (Head Office: Ota-ku, Tokyo; President: Kazuma Sekiya) has conducted a surveillance audit for "BS25999-2:2007*" the Standard for Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) (certified in December 2008).
In this surveillance audit, pandemic infectious disease such as influenza were added to the current list of possible threats (earthquake) in order to establish enhanced BCM countermeasures. This is among the first initiatives to be taken in the semiconductor industry (source: SGS Japan, a certification body).
Aiming to be a "company with which customers feel confident doing business" and a "company where employees feel confident working", we will gradually extend the scope of the BCMS certificate registration to further enhance our business continuity.

BS25999-2:2007 is a standard written to ensure business continuity management (BCM). Its objective is to enable businesses to continue and quickly recover should a latent threat to an enterprise's business continuity (such as natural disasters, e.g., earthquakes or typhoons, as well as outbreaks of new strains of influenza or other infectious diseases, acts of terrorism, or system failures) become a reality. Even if the organization does not experience a serious incident (one that would disrupt business), establishing and operating a BCMS based on BS25999-2:2007 enables it to define its major business processes, as well as the impact to those processes in the event various threats become a reality. Such procedures would additionally increase organizational resiliency (ability to recover) when incidents do happen.
