Standard Chartered Bank - India has implemented a robust Business Continuity Management model in line with global best practices. The BCP framework ensures that every new business within the bank, is mandatorily taken under its governance. Every unit undergoes a process of Business Impact Analysis (BIA) and evaluates for itself for critical processes which would impact the customer, regulator and business in general. Post the conduct the BIA the Businesses and Branches prepare a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) ensuring that business is not disrupted during any crisis. Under the business continuity framework the bank has contingency plans for handling city-wide or nationwide pandemic situations including our call centres. The robustness of these plans is done regularly to ensure the bankís preparedness to handle crisis at any time. The bankís contingency plans are formulated & tested to enable the Bank to continue critical operations in any crisis, affecting an entire business, branch, a single building. City, Region or Country. The BCP framework is audited every year for ensuring the robustness and efficiency of the system.
