About the course

In recent years business continuity and organisational resilience has emerged as a major consideration for all organisations. Organisations have come to realise it is crucial to have a plan in place in the event they cannot operate under business as usual conditions. ISO 22301:2019 establishes a framework for identifying, assessing, responding to, and recovering from disruptive events to return to business as usual as quickly as possible.

Our Business Continuity course will give you an understanding of the role and requirements of ISO 22301: 2019 Security and resilience — Business continuity management systems — Requirements., including business impact analysis, integration with risk management, business continuity planning, disaster recovery, and more. 

This course is designed as an additional 2-day workshop that builds on the learning outcomes of the Integrated Management Systems Lead Auditor Course

This course has the equivalent of 16 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points.

Plus, you receive a free licensed copy of:

  •  ISO 22301:2019 – Auditing Business Continuity Management Systems
