BS25999, the Business Continuity Standard, is of real importance to everyone from Board directors, corporate executives and IT managers through to facilities managers and business continuity professionals. Service disruptions, delays in responding to customer requests, inability to process transactions in a timely manner or being unable to resume business in the face of a disaster can all have significant impacts on an organisation’s effective operation. Recent natural disasters as well as terrorist activities have shown that an organisation’s resilience to a disaster and its being able to resume business quickly and efficiently were directly related to its preparedness to respond to unforeseen events.
In the UK, the NHS has determined that BS25999 certification is a key way for NHS entities to demonstrate that they adequately resilient, and UK local authorities have recognised the BS25999 certification is the best method possible for demonstrating they are meeting their obligations under the Civil Contingencies Act.
Internationally, organisations in both the public and private sector are pursuing BS25999 certification in order to demonstrate to stakeholders and customers that they have adequate business resilience arrangements in place.
