He said: “The British Standard Institute (BSI) certification recognizes companies that have implemented systems and structures that ensure their operations are in line with international best practices.
“With more than 70,000 certified clients and more full-time assessors than any other certification body worldwide, the BSI Group is one of the largest and most experienced certification bodies focused primarily on training, auditing and certification of qualified organizations,” he said.
According to Onuoha, the certification attests that Guaranty Trust Bank has instituted internationally accepted processes that guaranty the security of its customers’ information, the ability of the institution to consistently provide quality service, and its capacity to resume business within a short timeframe in the event of any business disruptions.
