For some time there has been a lack of consensus, both across disciplines and between countries of the term ‘business continuity management’. Many of its original practices emerged from an earlier technical discipline i.e. IT Disaster Recovery. The significance of BS25999 is that it is the first national Standard for BCM to which organisations can be certified. It has been developed by a broad based group of world class experts representing a cross section of industry sectors and provides a unified approach to defining processes, principles and terminology surrounding BCM.
BS25999 provides a basis for understanding, developing and implementing a risk based BCM approach within an organisation, providing reassurance to both internal and external stakeholders. It contains a comprehensive set of BCM best practice and covers the whole BCM lifecycle. It is not merely about ensuring that organisations have a contingency plan in place should a disaster occur, but understanding the business imperatives of an organisation, recognising where its critical activities are and designing availability in to them, to avoid damaging disruptions in the first place.
Our Infiniti-e BCM package full encapsulates the guiding principles of BS2599.
