IT Governance Ltd
, the business continuity management and compliance experts, have reported that the newly released ISO22313 BCMS Guidance
can be immediately ordered online at www.itgovernance.co.uk/shop/p-1262.aspx
The ISO22313 BCMS Guidance
(ISO 22313 Societal security — Business continuity management systems — Guidance) offers international best practice to organisations implementing a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS).
ISO22313 BCMS Guidance
acts as the guidance document for ISO 22301 - the international standard for business continuity management. It should be read in conjunction with the ISO22301 BCMS Requirements
released in 2012.
Deploying a BCMS and achieving certification against the ISO22301 standard demonstrates that an organisation is prepared should ‘business as usual’ be disrupted, and that the organisation will be able to continue should an incident occur.
Organisations that do not have a business continuity management system (BCMS) in place could face severe consequences if they suffer a disruptive incident including monetary loss, reputation damage and loss of customers.
Having an effective Business Continuity Management System in place is particularly important for organisations in the critical infrastructure and finance sector.
Organisations can purchase the ISO22313 BCMS Guidance
