ISO 22301:2012

Societal security -- Business continuity management systems

One of the features that differentiates this standard compared to other business continuity frameworks/standards is that an organization can become certified by an accredited certification body, and will therefore be able to prove its compliance to its customers, partners, owners and other stakeholders

Who is ISO 22301 applicable to?

All organizations might be subject to disruptions; this may include technology failure, flooding, utility disruption, fire or terrorist attack. The standard is available to any organization (or its parts) regardless of their size, scope or complexity, that wishes to manage their overall business risks and develop the capability to plan for, and respond to, incidents and business disruptions. The consequences of unexpected business disruptions may be far-reaching and might involve loss of life, loss of assets or income, or the inability to deliver products and services on which the organization's survival might depend. By proactive identification of the impact of disruption, BCM identifies those products and services that are crucial for the organization's existence, and helps to establish what responses will be needed if a disruption occurs. ISO 22301 further provides the capability to adequately react in case of disruption.

Who can implement this standard?

Any organization – large or small, for profit or non-profit, private or public. The standard is conceived in such a way that it is applicable to any size or type of organization. How does business continuity fit into overall management?
Business continuity is part of overall risk management in a company, with overlapping areas with information security management and IT management.
