An Introduction to ISO 22301

ISO 22301 is an internationally recognized standard for business continuity management systems (BCMS). It specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving a BCM system. Organizations that achieve ISO 22301 certification demonstrate that they have effectively implemented a comprehensive BCMS program and are capable of responding to disruptions quickly and effectively.


ISO 22301 certification is important for several reasons. First, it shows that an organization has met rigorous international standards for BCM. This can give customers and other stakeholders confidence in the organization's ability to respond to disruptions. Second, the certification can help organizations improve their BCM programs by providing a framework for assessing and improving their continuity capabilities. Finally, it can help organizations reduce the risk of business disruptions.
