ISO 22301 is the world’s first international Business Continuity Management standard. It provides a framework to protect against, reduce the likelihood or occurrence, prepare for, respond to and recover from disruptive incidents when they arise.
Events such as fire, floods, natural disasters, thefts or criminal acts, IT disruption, staff shortages or even a terrorist attack can be identified, before beginning a recovery plan to minimise disruption in the running of your business.
By its very nature, a continuity planning and management system like ISO 22301 means that these problems can be identified before they happen. This allows you to put plans in place to ensure the smooth running of your critical business functions during a time of crisis.
