ISO 22301 – Business Continuity Management.

What is ISO 22301?

ISO 22301 is the international standard for Business Continuity Management Systems (BCMS). It demonstrates your organisation’s commitment to identify and mitigate all threats that have the potential to impact your operations and the subsequent provision of a product or service.

Implementing a BCMS to ISO 22301 standard will assist in identifying and planning for all unexpected disruptions, not just the obvious like fire or flood, but risk and potential reputation damage which can occur from missed deadlines, data leakages, operational, IT outages, industrial actions, disappointed clients or direct financial losses due to the disruption.

A good Business Continuity Management System is built around the business and not around the standard. It should be easy to maintain and set up so you can focus on your business threats and plans to respond and not on ISO 9001.

What are the benefits of ISO 22301?

ISO 22301 offers significant benefits regardless of an organisation’s type or size. It enhances resilience against the disruption of services, ensuring the continuity of critical operations during crises. This is particularly important considering the increasing frequency of cyber attacks in recent years.

It helps organizations meet legal and regulatory requirements, providing a competitive advantage and building trust with stakeholders. The standard promotes proactive planning, which can significantly reduce downtime during an incident, minimizing financial loss.

Furthermore, it encourages a culture of continuous improvement, fostering operational efficiency. ISO 22301 also aligns with other ISO standards, facilitating integrated management systems.
