As the frequency of information security breaches increases, cyber security is becoming a growing concern for business continuity professionals too.
During the past 12 months, even small businesses have experienced an average of 17 information security breaches and this rises to 113 in larger organisations.*
Cyber security and business continuity planning
When considering the potential disruption and cost of a serious information security breach, it’s perhaps not surprising that ISO27001, the information security standard has very close links with ISO22301, the business continuity standard. So close, that if you opt to comply with both standards you don’t need to duplicate the common elements – saving you a chunk of time!
With the right training and support, implementing ISO27001 or ISO22301 is much easier than you might think. As leading experts in ISO27001, our well established ISO27001 learning pathway has now helped over 700 professionals gain the skills required to implement this standard through classroom training.
By working with experienced Business Continuity Consultants, we’ve applied our expertise in ISO27001 training to develop a new ISO22301 learning pathway. This training pathway takes delegates from foundation level, through to developing the skills required to successfully implement and audit against the ISO22301 standard.
Organisations that have implemented both standards will certainly be sleeping well tonight, safe in the knowledge that the risk of a security breach has been minimised and if the worst should happen – their business continuity plan will keep them trading, when other, less prepared competitors may fail.
