This week is Business Continuity Awareness Week (BCAW). The purpose of BCAW is to provide a vehicle to raise the awareness of the value of Business Continuity (BC) as an integrated part of an organisation’s strategy.
ISO22301 sets out the requirements for a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) and draws on international best practice. Here are some benefits of aligning your BCMS to ISO 223021:
- The requirements in the standard can be applied in organisations of any size, type or location, making it widely applicable.
- By creating a BCMS aligned with ISO22301, organisations ensure that they are best prepared for a disruptive incident. More importantly, it prepares them to continue trading and return to business as usual as quickly as possible.
- An ISO22301 BMCS protects an organisation’s turnover, profits and reputation by ensuring preparedness.
