ISO 22301 : BUSINESS CONTINUITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
We provide ISO 22301 consulting, implementation, audit and certification support. This includes a phase wise approach that involves understanding business context to business continuity, business impact analysis (BIA), risk assessment, exercise and testing, detail recommendations, policy/documentation support, training, coaching employees/teams, coaching business continuity managers, audit and management review leading to successful zero defect ISO 22301 certification. Our ISO 22301 consulting methodology ensures several benefits. Most important of them are the organisation preparedness to manage 'any' crisis or outage. The focus of any business continuity program is not limited to 'prevention' but more importantly 'ability to respond'. The standard uses these 4Rs - namely 'respond, recover, resume and restore'. Our approach of ISO 22301 audit ensures that you get true business value on this investment.
WHAT CONSTITUTES A TRUE BUSINESS CONTINUITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (BCMS)?
BCMS is the organizations' capability to respond post a crisis within a pre-determined response time. BCMS is not how you prevented crisis but more importantly what you will do post crisis. Crisis can be described in several outage scenarios but chiefly they can combine people outage or unavailability, physical site, communication or technology, and/or vendor unavailability. Setting up BCMS involves understanding business and its requirement for recovery expressed in unit of time. In addition, it also involves business continuity decisions on architecture, definition, documentation, implementation, measurement and audits. The most important feature of BCMS is testing your plans - because your business continuity is as good as it is tested. Absence of a defined process as to how your business will recover or its testing is therefore a clear case of absence of a business continuity management system (BCMS).
