ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management Certification
What is ISO 22301?
ISO 22301 is the world’s first international Business Continuity Management standard. It provides a framework to protect against, reduce the likelihood or occurrence, prepare for, respond to and recover from disruptive incidents when they arise.
Events such as fire, floods, natural disasters, thefts or criminal acts, IT disruption, staff shortages or even a terrorist attack can be identified, before beginning a recovery plan to minimise disruption in the running of your business.
By its very nature, a continuity planning and management system like ISO 22301 means that these problems can be identified before they happen. This allows you to put plans in place to ensure the smooth running of your critical business functions during a time of crisis.
Benefits to your organisation:
Delivery following a disruption it provides a rehearsed method of restoring the ability to supply critical products and services to an agreed level and timeframe
Resilience proactively improves resilience when faced with the disruption of an organisation’s ability to achieve key objectives
Management delivers a proven capability for managing a disruption and protecting (and enhancing) reputation and brand
The requirements specified in ISO 22301 are generic and intended to be applicable to all organisations, or parts thereof, regardless of type, size and nature of the organisation’s operating environment and complexity.
Why seek certification to ISO 22301?
Many organisations seek certification to ISO 22301 to enable them to understand, develop and implement a structured and formalised business continuity management system, helping minimise risk and the chance of disruption to the organisation, identify what responses will be needed if a disruption occurs and provides the capability to adequately react in case of disruption.
Holding certification to ISO 22301 also demonstrate to stakeholders that your business continuity capability is appropriate to the size and complexity of your organisation.
