ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management is a set of standards used to manage an organization’s risk when it comes to disruptions in its ability to provide products or services. These standards were created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and they are designed to help organizations prepare, respond, recover from, and anticipate potential risks.
This includes preventing, preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disruptions to keep the organization functioning. It covers every aspect of an organization’s operations, including employees, assets, and supply chains. Significant topics include risk assessment, business impact analysis (BIA), emergency preparedness plans (EPPs), and recovery strategies.
One of the key benefits of ISO 22301 is that it can help organizations improve their overall resilience. Resilience is the ability of an organization to withstand disruptions and continue to operate effectively. By implementing the standards set out in ISO 22301, businesses can become more resilient and better prepared for any potential disruptions.
