IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in business continuity and BS25999 information, books, tools and training, has reported an increase in the number of customers who bought the BS25999 BCMS Implementation Toolkit to support the implementation of business continuity management system in their organisation.
The BS25999 BCMS Implementation Toolkit has been designed to enable organisations to quickly and effectively implement a business continuity management system (BCMS) in line with BS25999. Seen as best practice for business continuity management, BS25999 should be considered by any organisation that wants to ensure that its business continuity planning will be both resilient and robust when required.
Business continuity and disaster recovery planning is a key governance responsibility. It is the duty of directors to exercise due care and plan ahead for possible threats, such as natural disasters, terrorism and cybercrime. It has been proven that 80% of organisations with a tried and tested business continuity plan are more likely to survive a major threat, whereas only 20% of those without a business continuity plan are likely to survive.
However, the frightening thing is that 30% of businesses still don't have a business continuity plan set in place (according to the Business Continuity Institute's survey). With such high risks at stake, and the political and economic climate as it is today, it is more important than ever to ensure your company is entrusted with a strategic business continuity plan. A well-implemented BCMS provides organisations with both a business continuity strategy and an incident response structure. This means that organisations that have implemented BCMS can immediately undertake preventive and corrective actions when a disaster strikes.
The BS25999 BCMS Implementation Toolkit contains all the templates and tools to enable organisations to produce their own tailored versions of all these essential documents. This toolkit comes with an inbuilt 12-month support and upgrade contract which ensures that buyers benefit from all improvements to the toolkit for 12 months. Organisations that would like to try the toolkit before buying their own copy can download a demo version here: www.itgovernance.co.uk/bs25999-toolkit-demo.aspx.
Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, “This toolkit is suitable for all organisations. The policy and procedure templates are generally applicable across all industries. The benefits from buying this toolkit are huge. By paying a one-off price, organisations ensure that they use best practice for their business continuity arrangements”.
