Business Continuity Management System
A Complete Guide to Implementing ISO 22301
FREE UK and US delivery
This Business Continuity Management System guide provides clear and easy to navigate guidance on how to implement the ISO 22301 management system requirements.
Its chapter overviews, check lists, tables and figures are all put to great use in making this complex and vital subject easy to digest. As you delve into subjects such as 'Business Impact Analysis' information like the strengths and weaknesses analysis of 'information collection methods' really do help to make sure you get the detail right, you feel as if you gain the benefit of expert experience very quickly.
This book works on a number of levels which all good system guides need to, I can delve in and out effortlessly, get in-depth guidance on areas I'm unsure of, find all the practical advice quickly or completely engross myself for a fuller understanding. When Business Continuity Management Systems are something you do alongside a role like Quality a guide like this is really invaluable.
I felt guidance around documentation could have benefited from worked examples having seen how easy it is for documented plans to become unusable in real world scenarios. The section on Performance Evaluation however more than makes up for this probably being the best 27 pages on the subject you will ever read.
I've previously developed business continuity plans working directly from the standard, as these plans are updated and new ones developed I can imagine this book right by my side along with my copy of ISO 22301 providing assurance and confidence that I'm approaching this incredibly important subject with all the care it deserves.
If you are in charge of your organizations business continuity efforts or simply thinking about making your business more secure I would recommend this book as a valuable resource.
