Business Continuity Management (BCM) is a management process that identifies potential threats to an organization and the impacts to business operations if those threats are realized. Continuity of Operations Planning (COOP) is a similar system designed for continuity of government operations or the “public sector.” Both systems provide a system for enhancing the resilience of an organization.
There are standards that provide requirements and guidance for designing and implementing a Business Continuity Management System.
ISO 22301: Business Continuity Management Systems – Requirements
ISO 22313: Business Continuity Management Systems – Guidance
There are also additional technical specifications available.
The ICOR courses in the BCM Discipline teach how to align, implement, and audit to BCM programs using ISO 22301. The variety of courses offer education for beginners, for those with experience, and for those looking to grow professionally by learning how to audit or prepare to be audited.
