With the global acceptance of ISO22301 as the default standard for business continuity management (BCM), the role of the ISO22301 Certified BCMS Lead Auditor is set to grow in importance. This fact is also visible in job adverts that require proof from auditors that they have the necessary experience and qualifications.
Alan Calder, CEO of specialist training provider IT Governance
, also confirms that the career of the lead auditor is a prestigious one, but in order to be competitive you need to prove that you have both experience and qualification.
“Professionals have to demonstrate their competence at auditing business continuity management systems for certification to ISO22301. By attending our ISO22301 Certified BCMS Lead Auditor training course
, for example, delegates not only acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to perform best at work, but they also get a world-class certificate.”
ISO22301 BCMS Lead Auditors
are regarded as the specialists who pave the way to continuing ISO22301 compliance. They have to be able to lead independent audits, manage auditing teams at each stage of the audit process and, ensure that an organisation’s business continuity management systems provide the capability to deal with disruptions.
Calder says, “If you are an existing auditor, for example an ISO27001 Lead Auditor, you can benefit enormously by qualifying as an ISO22301 BCMS Lead Auditor
. This will give you more flexibility on the job market, whilst you’ll become a more valuable employee too.’
