The London Olympics pose a very real threat to business continuity. Whether it is key members of staff or deliveries being caught up in travel disruptions or a remote workforce that has not been fully enabled through the appropriate technology, ‘business as usual‘ may still be out of reach for some organisations.
And it’s not just London based organisations that will suffer. Staff absenteeism could be a problem for reasons other than travel distruption. Whilst it may be too late to adopt the new international business continuity standard, ISO 22301, ahead of the games, you can still put appropriate measures in place using the document templates and guidance contained in our best selling BS25999 BCMS Implementation Toolkit.
Beyond the games, you should cosider the new standard and attend our ISO22301 BCMS Foundation Training Course for an introduction to the best practices associated with Business Continuity Management as defined by the ISO22301 standard, or the ISO22301 BCMS Lead Implementer course for comprehensive and practical coverage of all aspects of implementing a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) and ensuring full compliance to the ISO22301 standard.
