The essentials of Business Continuity Management in a nutshell. ISO22301: A Pocket Guide will help you understand the Business Continuity international practice, and provides guidance on the best way to implement a fit-for-purpose BCMS. If your organisation is affected by any of these issues and you're unprepared, then the financial and reputational damage you face could prove disastrous. You could fail to keep up with customer demand, lose important business, and your customers could go elsewhere. Without a proper risk assessment strategy, your company directors could even face prosecution if a major incident occurs and results in loss or injury. An introduction to ISO22301 To minimise the impact of a disaster on your business, and to continue to provide essential services to your customers, you need to put in place a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS). ISO22301: A Pocket Guide is designed to help you satisfy the requirements of ISO22301, the latest international standard for Business Continuity Management (BCM). A BCMS based on ISO22301 will protect your organisation's turnover, profits and reputation. With the expert advice contained in this guide, you can ensure your organisation develops a business continuity plan that is fit for purpose, and ensure your continuing service when disaster strikes.
