Ely, England, 9 July 2012 – IT Governance Ltd, the global leader in business continuity and compliance solutions, has announced that it has launched two of the UK’s first ISO22301 training courses to help organisations understand the benefits and the implementation process of this new standard.
Professionals responsible for ensuring that their organisation responds to and survives any form of disaster, from an IT service disruption to a major act of nature, can now book on the ISO22301 BCMS Foundation Training Course and ISO22301 BCMS Lead Implementer Training Course in London.
Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, “The UK was hit by a wave of floods in the past few months and more rain is expected in some parts of the country over the next weeks. We have witnessed service disruptions across the country with many people not being able to get to work. The London 2012 Olympics are also likely to cause traffic and other unforeseeable problems. So what do you do if you are a business owner? How can you protect your business?”
Calder continues, “Implementation of the ISO22301 standard will help companies deal with such situations enabling them to go ‘back to business as usual’ quickly. This is critical for keeping the confidence of their customers and employees intact.”
ISO/IEC 22301:2012 was published in May 2012 and replaces the BS25999 standard which will be withdrawn in November 2012. All organisations that hold BS25999 will be required to transition to ISO22301 with the expected transition period likely to be no more than 24 months.
The ISO22301 BCMS Foundation Training Course provides an introduction to the best practices associated with business continuity management as defined by ISO22301. The interactive course will also provide a guide to the differences between ISO22301 and BS25999. The course takes place on 11 September 2012 in London. Places can be booked immediately here www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/2140.
The ISO22301 BCMS Lead Implementer Training Course provides a comprehensive and practical coverage of all aspects of implementing a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) and ensuring full accreditation to the ISO22301 standard. The three-day course takes place on 12-14 September 2012 in London. Places can be booked immediately here www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/1435.
