ISO 22301 in UAE

ISO 22301:2019 Business Continuity Management System Certification aims to help businesses of any size, location, or activity to be better prepared and more confident to handle any disruptions to the daily operation due to a disaster or unprecedented event.

ISO 22301 Business Continuity management System – a method that enables organizations to keep functioning during an incident, and address the prevention of and response to disruptions.

What is BCMS?

ISO 22301:2019 highlights the requirement of a Business Continuity Management System (BCMS). Building an ISO 22301:2019 complaint BCM System will enable businesses to respond proactively towards any unexpected incidents halting the business operations.

The BCMS framework will empower businesses to update, control, and deploy effective disaster management and risk mitigation processes.

A BCMS helps organizations cope with incidents affecting their business-critical processes and activities, from the failure of a single server to the complete loss of a major facility. ISO 22301, the international standard that describes best practice for business continuity, states that there are four major components to a successful BCMS.
The major four components which has proven effectiveness in implementing and maintaining the BCMS are

Management Support

As with any major project, a BCMS must be backed by senior staff for it to be effective. This ensures that the organization will be given the necessary resources and that the project will be supported throughout the organization.

Business Impact Analysis:

This is used to identify an organization’s critical activities and dependencies, which determine its priorities for recovery following a disruption.

Risk Assessment:

This enables organizations to determine:

  •   The specific scenarios that can affect each business activity;
  •   How likely it is that those scenarios will occur; and
  •   How severe the damage of each scenario could be.

Business Continuity Plan (BCP):

The BCP is where the three previous components come together. It details the scenarios that an organization needs to prepare for and how it will respond to them. The goal is to stabilize the situation and allow the organization to continue operating as efficiently as possible until the disruption is resolved.
