ISO 22301 - Business Continuity Management
Businesses face a variety of disruptions that can have significant impacts on their operations, from cyberattacks and IT failures to natural disasters, supply chain disruptions, and pandemics. To help organizations respond and recover from these disruptions, the ISO 22301 business continuity management system standard provides best practices that are recognized globally.
ISO 22301 is applicable to businesses of any size and industry, but may be particularly relevant for high-risk sectors such as utilities, financial services, oil and gas, transportation, telecom, and food and beverage production. Additionally, it is critical for public sector organizations where continued operation is essential.
By implementing the requirements of the standard, businesses can develop a better understanding of their operations and create a business continuity plan. This helps companies to maintain operations, protect their assets and profits, meet legal and regulatory requirements, and monitor and test their preparedness.
