Risk and Business Continuity Management


Risk & Business Continuity Management Policy

GLOBALFOUNDRIES strives to meet commitments to customers, the community and employees through credible risk assessment, disciplined mitigation, comprehensive threat awareness and practiced crisis management.  In this manner, we hope to achieve strategic and practical recovery planning backed by responsible risk financing.

The following are key elements:

  • Prevention, mitigation and recovery are a priority. Appropriate risk financing is a backstop to ensure we can implement necessary business plan continuity.

  • Adoption of world-class  standards
  • Recognized best-practices for loss prevention, crisis management and business recovery
