ISO 22301:2019 Requirements and Internal Auditing Training Course

ISO 22301:2019 is designed to help organizations understand, manage and reduce their risks around business continuity. ISO 22301:2019 provides a framework for a business continuity management system (BCMS), helping you to operate and maintain processes, capabilities and response structures for ensuring the organization will survive disruptions and provide assurance to your stakeholders. The adoption of a BCMS is intended to help an organization to continually improve its business continuity performance, fulfill legal and other requirements, and achieve its business continuity objectives.

This training combines our ISO 22301:2019 Requirements and Internal Auditing training courses.

Day one of this course will help you understand the principles of ISO 22301:2019 and the methods and techniques available to you. It will help you understand how the requirements of ISO 22301:2019 provide the basis of an effective BCMS and the roles individuals will need to play. With the full support of a world-class BSI tutor, you’ll learn about ISO 22301:2019 common terms and definitions, as well as the key concepts and requirements.

An internal audit programme is one of 4 key assurance processes within an effective BCMS.
