ISO 22301 – Business Continuity Management Systems
Every organization nowadays needs to be secured towards disruptions, incidents, inside and outside threats. The ISO 22301 Business Continuity standard has been developed to protect companies against threats, reduce their likelihood, and ensure your business recovers from disruptive incidents.
An effective business continuity management system (BCMS) will help organizations develop and maintain a best practice approach to respond effectively to any disruption, by implementing continuous improvement tools and techniques.
