ISO 22301 Overview

Business continuity is a process that helps organisations plan for the unexpected and better manage their risks and protect their assets.

This means that they have plans in place to resume ‘business as usual’ and as quickly as needed in the event of an incident, from loss of IT, people or telecommunications right through to terrorist activity, extreme weather or a pandemic.

Understanding of business continuity management is increasing as more organisations realise how dependent they are on ever more complex and extended supply chains.
