In the face of recent natural disasters, such as the earthquake in Japan and floods in Australia, combined with the unrest in the Middle East; business continuity management is now a critical business issue. Boards everywhere should, if they are not already doing so, be putting plans in place to minimize the impact that a natural disaster would have on their organisation.
Demonstrate to customers, regulators and other stakeholders that your organisation has a full and functioning BCMS.
Following the tragic events of 9/11, the US Government selected the internationally renowned standard BS25999 to drive business continuity awareness and competency in companies right across the nation.
BS25999 is the Business Continuity and Business Resilience certification standard that has worldwide applicability.
As well as containing the documentation templates that that enable a BC manager to quickly and effectively implement a BCMS in line with BS25999, this toolkit contains electronic copies of the following specialist guides:
- BS25999 A Pocket Guide, which provides an easy to read and straightforward introduction to the subjects of business continuity and BS 25999;
- Business Continuity and BS25999: A Combined Glossary, which sets out a common vocabulary for business continuity; &
- Business Continuity Management: a Manager’s Guide to BS25999, which is a concise and practical guide to implementing this new benchmark for business continuity management.
