ISO 22301:2013 provides a model for developing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS). In recent years, we have all become aware that organisations in the private and public sectors have suffered severe financial losses and serious reputational damage as a result of crises. These may come in the form of natural disasters, failure in the supply chain, loss of staff, acts of terrorism, environmental incidents, breakdowns in technology and so on. The harsh reality is that these and other unwanted events can and will happen. Forward thinking organisations will take proactive steps to ensure that they can manage the risks most effectively.
This brief is designed to be delivered in-house. It will give management a clear understanding of how ISO 22301 offers a rigorous solution which not only includes contingency planning and disaster recovery but also prevention of events which can badly disrupt the business.
Who should attend
Managers who wish to obtain a clear understanding of how intelligent implementation of ISO 22301 can ensure that their organisation has the means to manage current and future threats to business continuity. Afterwards, they should be able to discuss and answer the questions “Is ISO 22301 right for us?” and “Would ISO 22301 certification add still more value to our business?”.
Attendees will have a clear understanding of the intent and structure of the ISO 22301 and how it provides a degree of protection which far exceeds conventional approaches to crisis management.
The knowledge gained will enable them to make informed decisions about the implementation of ISO 22301 in their organisation.
