ISO 22301 gap analysis service

Receive an expert assessment of how effective your BCPs (business continuity plans) and procedures are against the international standard ISO 22301, which outlines the specification for a best-practice BCMS (business continuity management system).

Conducted by our team of BCM (business continuity management) experts, this service will assess your current BCM arrangements to ensure your organisation is fully prepared to handle a disruptive incident. It will also help you develop a convincing business case for implementing a BCMS, and equip you with the skills required for implementation.

What is a gap analysis?

A gap analysis will assess your current BCM arrangements and review your existing BCM policies and procedures for relevancy, effectiveness and efficiency to determine any potential areas for improvement against the requirements of ISO 22301.
