    Business continuity is one of the best practices that more organisations miss out on. This is why ISO 22301:2019 was established to provide organisations with the ability to maintain functional operations during disruption, crisis, losing a core team member and even cybersecurity attacks.

    What is the ISO 22301:2019 standard?

    ISO 22301:2019 is an international standard which provides requirements for a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) and was created to provide organisations with systems, procedures and instructions to ensure essential functions continue to be operational during disasters. Disasters that are covered in the standard include natural, accidental and intentional man-made disasters.

    How ISO 22301:2019 Business Continuity Management Systems keeps your organisation going during emergencies.

    All organisations and sectors are subject to some form of disruptions across its lifetime. An implemented Business Continuity System ensures your organisation can overcome any crisis with minimal impact.

    Some of the other benefits your organisation can expect from ISO 22301:2019 include:

    •       Increased operational resilience
    •       Preparedness in an emergency
    •       Crisis management
    •       Reputation protection during emergencies
    •       Plan in place for a sudden loss of critical resources
    •       Systems and procedures in place to re-establish essential functions during catastrophic disasters.

    Implementing an ISO 22301:2019 BCSM in your organisation
