Failing to Prepare is Preparing to Fail
Key Themes of Business Continuity Management
Leadership & Risk Management
As with all Annex SL based ISO Management Systems, ISO 22301 has a strong emphasis on leadership, ensuring clear buy-in and commitment from top management.
Business Continuity Management forms part of an organisation’s over-all Risk Management Programme, and the standard addresses risks and opportunities related to the BCMS.
Business Impact Analysis
It’s almost impossible to plan for every disruptive event that could occur, so we use Business Impact Analysis as a tool to identify the important products/services your business needs to deliver to customers, and their activities and processes which support the delivery of those products/services.
As recommended in the BCI Good Practice Guide, we can help you assess this on a Strategic, Tactical and Operational level, to ensure business continuity is effective for your needs and embedded across the whole organisation.
Business Continuity Strategies
There are several ways to determine the right strategy for your organisation, and it may be a mixture across different products/processes.
Assessing the Maximum Tolerable Period of Disruption (MTPD) and determining the Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) is one approach our ISO 22301 Consultants can guide you through when selecting strategies.
Incident Response and Communications
Planning a response to an incident, including the roles and responsibilities of those involved, is also important if your business continuity planning is to succeed.
Our Consultants will help you to establish your incident response structure.
