ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management

Ensuring your business is prepared for the unexpected disruption or disaster

At some point in the next five years, your business is likely to face serious disruption. This could be anything from major IT failure, high levels of staff absenteeism for unforeseen reasons, failure in the supply chain, even relocation caused by flood or fire.

Waiting for the unexpected to happen in not an option. If you haven't already done so, then you need to take action now - and think the unthinkable. By following best practice as outlined in the internationally recognised standard for Business Continuity Management (ISO 22301), you will reduce your risk and be fully prepared should your key business activites be disrupted. 

Business Continuity Management is based on the principle that it is the key responsbility of an organisation's director to ensure the continuation of it business operations at all times and this necessitates having suitable plans, processes and practices in place to meet most eventualities. 

A Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is something that your stakeholders will expect you to have, and your insurer will almost certainly want you to provide as part of your responsibility toward risk management. 

If producing an effective Business Continuity Plan seems daunting, we can help. Our experts have helped many companies to assess critical aspects of their processes and to develop structured BCPs. Each plan is developed with the specific needs of the company in mind, while implementing best practice from across the business supplies sector.
