In order to implement, establish, plan, operate, monitor, maintain and review, ISO 22301:2012 specifies various requirements, and also improves a documented management system continuously to protect against, prepare for, recover from, reduce the likelihood of, and respond to disruptive incident when they arise. ISO 22301:2012’s requirements are generic in nature, and is intended to apply to all organizations or parts, irrespective of the size, type and nature of the organization. The extent of applying these requirements are concentrated on the operating environment and complexity of the organization.
For any successful business continuity planning (BCP), you need to have consistent and clear communication. The planning will cover everything regarding how your employees will be communicating with each other, where they will go, and how will they keep doing their jobs. The planning prepares your organization to brace itself for all disruptive events.
It has been seen that 61% of surveyed companies had to invoke their Business Continuity Planning, and 43% had to do it more than once. The key causes of having a BCP is protecting the organization against power outages, cyber-attacks, natural disasters, IT failures, floods, fires, telecom failures and other pandemonium-issuing incidents.
48% of organizations that didn’t have a proper BCP have suffered any one of the aforementioned incidents, 37% of the cases didn’t have plans which adequately address emergency communications and 25% of the cases didn’t include their key staff in the testing, which resulted in the staff not knowing their role and responsibility in the plan.
