Everbridge’s proprietary certification process offers organizations an end-to-end methodology for evaluating and benchmarking resilience when confronted with critical events.

“The ability to demonstrate business resilience is congruent with the rise of ESG as an investment metric or screening factor, slotting naturally into governance initiatives,” said Connor Taylor, Technology Analyst in the ESG & Sustainability practice at Verdantix. “Everbridge has introduced a new, compelling international framework benchmarking the full lifecycle of business preparedness, with a focus on diverse events including IT incidents, supply chain continuity, and physical risk.”

Launched in July 2021, Everbridge’s proprietary CEM Standards Framework™ and related certification process offer organizations the industry’s first end-to-end methodology for evaluating and benchmarking enterprise resilience preparedness. 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.

“This risk management industry recognition underscore’s Takeda’s strategy and commitment to crisis readiness and business resilience through the power of data and digital analytics, risk intelligence, visualization and aggregate risk insights as highlighted by this risk management industry recognition,” said Whit Chaiyabhat, Vice President and Head of Global Security & Crisis Management at Takeda. “Takeda is a top global biopharmaceutical company with a strong values system, and the multi-year global security and crisis resilience vision is directly aligned with our work to serve our patients. This enterprise resilience designation further validates this commitment in the face of numerous worldwide operational risks.”

“At dentsu, the wellbeing and safety of our people is of the utmost importance. We also recognise that organizational resilience is vital to sustainable growth,” said Adam Barrett, Head of Resilience, dentsu international. “Recognition as a Best in Enterprise Resilience company reinforces to our colleagues, clients and partners that dentsu is deploying industry good practice and taking a forward-thinking approach to resilience.”

“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.”

Led by the Everbridge Professional Services team, the assessment of these categories leverages the culmination of over 500,000 hours of consultation to several thousands of the world’s largest companies and institutions, helping to keep people safe in over 1,500 municipalities, counties, cities, states and countries in every major region of the world including Europe, Asia, Oceania, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas. Any organization (including non-Everbridge customers) can participate in the certification assessment process, which typically takes place over a three- to five-week period.

“Everbridge congratulates Takeda, dentsu and Finastra for demonstrating the kind of enterprise resilience leadership that serves as a model for other forward-thinking companies,” said Dr. John Maeda, Chief Experience Officer at Everbridge. “With critical events rising across the world, enterprise resilience represents a way to thrive amid uncertain times, and our methodology provides the industry’s first standardized way to measure and foster it for future business continuity.”
