ISO22301 and ISO27001 – The building blocks of organization management system resilience

The importance of mitigating the disruption to information technology services has been at the heart of disaster recovery and business continuity plans for many years. With the growth and dependency on IT and the increased risk of attack from outside sources (cyber-attack), the survival of all organisation will depend upon the protection of their critical information assets and building security at every layer.

The idea of cyber resilience – that an organisation’s IT systems and processes should be resilient against natural disaster or outside attack is a key principle underlining the best practice and compliance to the ISO22301 and ISO27001 standards.

ISO 22301:2012 (formerly BS25999) is the international standard for business continuity within organisations and defines the specification and best practice for developing and implementing a robust business continuity management system.

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 helps businesses throughout the world mitigate the risks associated with cybercrime and provides the security assurance demanded by your board, shareholders, regulators and most importantly, your customers.
