“As a managed service provider, business continuity is vital to us and our clients so we’re delighted to receive this award,” said Charles Davis, CEO for the SAS Group. “BS 25999 accreditation is about supplier risk mitigation; it tells customers that SAS is a low risk organisation to do business with because we’re prepared for anything that could prevent us from delivering our services.”
“As an award, BS 25999 certification is a testament to the quality of the business continuity management system we have put in place across the entire SAS organisation; it is also the outcome of an eighteen month program of works,” said Davis.
