BT gives Kinross Gold great connections even in the remotest and most inhospitable regions

Central systems safeguard staff

It’s not just the metal that’s precious when you’re mining for gold. Safeguarding staff and equipment is vital to Kinross, especially in tough terrain like the Arctic Circle and the Sahara Desert. Added to that Stephen Kerrigan, Vice President for Information Technology, also has to protect the intellectual capital that gives the company its cutting edge.

Systems centralised in Canada energise the firm’s global operations. A secure and reliable network, accessible everywhere, is paramount. That’s why it’s significant that Stephen sees BT as the only service provider that won’t let him – or the business – or its people – down.
