Key Challenges Addressed

Modern organizations are highly dependent on information and systems to operate. Most business functions are reliant on IT systems to perform their tasks, and there are a growing number of interdependencies between these separate functions, which creates a fundamental challenge for organizations seeking to manage business continuity in line with the ISO 22301 Standard. 

Add to this the wider adoption of practices like remote working and “always on” service requirements, and organizations may lack the expertise or resource to assess the risk to their operations or develop plans to maintain adequate and acceptable continuity.

This is problematic as legal and regulatory impacts today carry much larger fines and there is generally less tolerance for e-services being disrupted.

How it Works

Our process for ISO 22301 starts by agreeing the scope of certification and performing a comprehensive business impact analysis. During this analysis, our consultants will conduct interviews and workshops with key stakeholders to identify critical business processes and activities​, their impact on the business and the risk they pose to operations.  

Our consultants will subsequently use these insights to review the maturity of your business continuity activities, including implementing mandatory requirements which includes assessing the risk to operations, judging the likelihood of disruption and developing plans to maintain continuity. For all of our clients, we ensure these plans are accurate, known and understood throughout the business, and reviewed and amended on a regular basis.

Here are some commonly asked questions about ISO 22301. If you’d like to learn more speak to one of our team. 

ISO 22301 is a holistic management process that identifies potential threats to an organisation and the impacts to business operations that those threats, if realised, might cause, and which provides a framework for building organisational resilience with the capability for an effective response that safeguards the interests of its key stakeholders, reputation, brand and value-creating activities. [Source: ISO 22301:2019​] 

ISO 22301 and ISO 27001 have significant alignment, the largest being that they both follow Annex A structure. While there are some deviations in each of the individual standards, there is considerable overlap in clause requirements​. As a result, organizations looking at multiple standards may not have to implement multiple times. They also both require a risk-based prioritization of products, services and activities​, though ISO 27001 is more limited in scope and specifically focuses on the management of information in continuity scenarios​. 

ISO 22301 protects the following areas: 

  • People 

  • Brand and reputation​ 

  • Shareholder and stakeholder value​ 

  • Tangible assets of the organization​ 

  • Intellectual capital​ 

  • Business intelligence and knowledge​ 

  • Revenue and profit​ 

  • Market share​ 

  • Organization viability
