It is becoming more and more important to be audited against ISO 22301 to demonstrate that should the worst happen, your organisation can recover and carry on as close to normal as possible. Implementing a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) and then having LRQA audit you against ISO 22301 will present a number of benefits to your company and customers.
Benefits of ISO 22301
Peace of mind – Being audited against ISO 22301 and gaining certiﬁcation gives a public and independent statement that should the worst happen, your organisation can recover.
Minimising risk – ISO 22301 audits ensure controls are in place to reduce the threat of incidents which impact on the day to day running of the organisation.
Reduced Costs - ISO 22301 audits from LRQA gives you, and your stakeholders, conﬁdence that you are prepared for anything which may impact the day to day running of the organisation.
What is ISO 22301 certification?
ISO 22301 introduces a requirement for metrics for business continuity management, as well as additional emphasis for BCMS operational planning and setting controls.
A business continuity management (BCM) system will help your organisation put structures in place to identify the potential threats that may exist, the impact of incidents and how they can be guarded against. It then provides a framework for managing the organisation through the process of preparing strategies and methods to reduce the impact of any incident and building the capability to effectively respond should one occur.
