How should you ensure that your organization continues to operate as effectively and efficiently as possible under unforeseen or unprecedented circumstances?
Business Continuity Planning is essential to ensure that your operations continue despite the occurrence of currently foreseen or unforeseen hazards. The international standard for business continuity management ISO 22301 specifies requirements to plan, implement, monitor, review, maintain and continually improve a management system to protect against, reduce the likelihood of occurrence, prepare for, respond to, and recover from disruptive incidents when they arise. Part of implementing such a Business Continuity Management System is putting in place plans for auditing your management system to ensure that it is effective, that it will work when we need it.
This popular COPEX training course will support you to develop your approach for implementing and auditing a Business Continuity Plan.
