ISO 22301: 2012 BUSINESS CONTINUITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
ISO 22301 is the Business Continuity Management System standard. Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) has been developed to protect companies from the risks associated with downtime which can occur due to unexpected disruptions or disasters. Disruptions to your business can result in revenue loss, data risk breakdowns and failure to deliver normal client services as per service level agreements (SLAs). ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management Systems certification will guide a company on how best to plan for such eventualities. The ISO 22301 BCM standard is designed to ensure that a robust business continuity management system has been established, and that internal staff members are fully aware of their role within the system should an incident occur. Implementing a strong BCMS will help your organization in quickly recovering from a disaster or disruption. The BCMS can also safeguard an organization against the reputational damage which can occur from missed deadlines, data leakages, operational, IT outages, industrial actions, disappointed clients or direct financial losses due to the destruction. ISO 22301: 2012 has been adapted by organizations seeking to demonstrate business continuity processes. The standard replaces the BS 25999:2 2007, which now stands replaced.
