Description

Have you ever wondered whether your business continuity plan is any good, or whether you've even got a business continuity plan? Anyone can write a simple document, call it a business continuity plan and hope for the best. But, unless you know that it will do what it is supposed to, it may be a wasted investment. This practical guide to the ISO22301 business continuity management system standard shows you how to develop and implement a business continuity management (BCM) and disaster recovery plan; ensuring you get back on your feet with the minimum of fuss, should the unthinkable happen. Providing a comprehensive introduction to the topic, this book includes practical, detailed guidance on developing and implementing a BCM system certifiable to the ISO22301 standard, using detailed and illustrative examples. A BCM policy and other useful document templates are provided in the appendices. As an international standard, ISO22301 is likely to become the benchmark that is used to judge how a business will cope with disaster. Although only some public bodies are required by law to have business continuity plans, an ISO22301 compliant system will give you peace of mind, reassure your customers and business partners and help you to meet your legal obligations. Disaster can strike without warning, so the time to start developing an ISO22301 compliant system is now. This book is the perfect place to start. Tony Drewitt has specialised in operational risk management and business continuity since 2001 and is currently working with several organisations to develop management systems in line with ISO22301 and its predecessor BS25999. He has written several books on business continuity including BS25999: A Pocket Guide, A Manager's Guide to BS25999 and Everything You Want to Know About Business Continuity.
