To reduce the risks that can be associated with the spread of COVID-19 across the community, it’s important for organizations to activate their business continuity plans and continue to adapt to the changing landscape.
UK Government has announced “home office” working for all government employees, except for workers in departments providing emergency and essential public services. The private sector has followed suit and activated their Business Continuity Plans (BCP), enabling organizations to cope better with the current crisis.
The international standard for business continuity management, ISO 22301, provides a robust framework to help you to understand and prioritize the threats and build your resilience. It specifies the requirements for a management system that can help protect against, reduce the likelihood of, and ensure you’re best placed to recover from disruptive incidents.
