ISO 22301 specifies requirements for the BCMS, providing a comprehensive framework that enables organizations to effectively anticipate, prepare, respond, and recover from disruptions, ensuring the continuity of their operations.

ISO 22301 provides requirements that are suitable for every organization regardless of the type, size, or complexity of operations, allowing them to adapt the standard to their unique operating environments.

Why Should You Attend?

Disasters can have severe adverse effects on an organization and can result from natural events, information security breaches, or various other incidents.

Establishing a BCMS based on ISO 22301 can help organizations progress toward understanding and managing disasters, incidents, and risks. By participating in this training course, you will learn the best practices of business continuity management, enabling the establishment of a framework that ensures an organization’s continued operational effectiveness during disruptive events.
