COVID-19 update from BLM

25 Mar 2020

The incident management team at BLM is continuing to closely monitor the UK government’s health and working practice advice relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have robust business continuity measures in place to ensure both our staff and clients’ health and wellbeing, but also our ability to service and support our clients with no or minimal disruption. Our offices are currently closed whilst our people work remotely.  As pandemic response advice changes, we will adhere to all new mandates.

We would like to assure clients that our operational response to COVID-19 will at all times be undertaken in accordance with our ISO27001 Information Security certification and our GDPR, Data Protection and Privacy obligations. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as advice and our response to the pandemic changes.
