The much anticipated international requirements standard for business continuity management- ISO 22301:2012 Societal security – Business continuity management systems has now been published by ISO today.
ISO 22301 has replaced the original British Standard BS 25999. The standard provides organizations with a framework to ensure that they can continue operating during the most challenging and unexpected circumstances – protecting their staff, preserving their reputation and providing the ability to continue to operate and trade. It also helps organizations develop a business continuity plan that keeps business running during and following a disruption.
The standard is particularly relevant for organizations operating in high risk environments where the ability to continue operating is paramount for business, customers and stakeholders – this includes utilities, finance, telecommunications, transport and the public sector. A business continuity management system (BCMS) aligned to ISO 22301 is suitable for organizations of all sizes, across all industries, public or private, manufacturing or service. And it provides a common language for global organizations, especially those with long and complex supply chains.
