Everbridge recognizes Finastra for distinguished leadership in organizational resilience

Finastra awarded Best in Enterprise Resilience™ Certification, a first-of-its-kind assessment of an organization’s digital transformation and resilience in the face of critical events

London, UK – September 27, 2021 – Everbridge today announced that Finastra has earned Best in Enterprise Resilience™ Certification after undergoing a rigorous evaluation of its readiness, responsiveness, and resilience when confronted with critical events.

Everbridge’s CEM Standards Framework™ anchors the certification process, which examines an organization’s capabilities across key competencies. The Best in Enterprise Resilience™ designation validates best practices in Critical Event Management (CEM).

Categories for potential certification include keeping people safe, maintaining business continuity and operational uptime, optimizing supply chain and supply routes, advancing the interconnectivity, efficiency and safety of smart buildings and the internet of things (IoT), and safeguarding an organization’s brand and reputation through resilient and responsive IT systems in an increasingly virtual world.

“The ability to achieve true organizational resilience is no easy feat,” said Dr. John Maeda, Chief Experience Officer at Everbridge, which pioneered the CEM Standards Framework™ and runs the Best in Enterprise Resilience™ certification program. “Every company has unique operational challenges – a combination of technologies, physical locations, supply chains, and, most importantly, people – all of which are constantly changing. To become Best in Enterprise Resilience™ certified, organizations must meet the highest standards of readiness to withstand a critical event without a significant impact on staff and operations. Congratulations to Finastra for standing at the forefront of digital transformation.”

“This certification is testament to the strong risk management culture we have built by focusing on our mission to enable the organization to instinctively utilize risk management in its day-to-day decision making,” said Elona Ruka-Wright, SVP, Chief Risk Officer at Finastra. “Risk is inherent in every aspect of our business and its impact ranges widely. We are taking the necessary steps for resiliency and have proactive plans in place for unexpected events that protect our global operations, as well as our employees and customers. This certification reflects those relentless efforts.”
