This latest revision of the International Standard for Business Continuity Management Systems – ISO 22301:2019 is a framework for an organization to systematically approach and meet Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) requirements. It also specifies the requirement to implement and manage your BCMS in order to protect against and reduce the likelihood of a disruptive incident, for example, the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizations with proper ISO 22301:2019 in place would be able to respond swiftly to incidents and plan ahead on recovery procedures from disruptions when they occur. Having an effective BCMS is important for all types of organisations, regardless of business sectors, size and nature of the business.
Upon completion of this two days ISO 22301:2019 BCMS implementation training, participants will learn the best-practice methods to implement the standard within the organization and to ensure its effectiveness through effective key leadership skills in delegation and problem-solving. Using a step-by-step approach with the aid of planning tools, participants will learn how to develop an implementation plan using the required documentation and processes involved.
Business Continuity Management (BCM) in any business environment spans the entire life-cycle of the organisation. The elements of continuity change but their relevance, impact, and influence on the performance of the organisation is crucial to appreciate, plan for and anticipate bottlenecks along the way.
There is an ongoing fear within the management manifested in either lack of effective forward planning, or in lackluster management emphasis placed on business continuity. Most often such failures are a result of a narrow focus on viewing BC as nothing more than infrastructure and resource allocation endeavor, IT back-up, or a DR site set-up remotely from the principal delivery location/center or merely practiced on paper to satisfy regulatory requirements and for insurance purposes. The current Covid-19 situation has awakened the world to the fact that a BCM is necessary to stay relevant and stay in business.
