Business disruption is one of the worst nightmares for any organization. This could be from any reason like some natural calamity i.e Fire, Flood, Pandemic or War, Energy breakage, etc. Also, these kinds of disruptions can cause great negative impacts which no company would like to afford.
Some critical sectors like hospitals, National power stations, food suppliers and many more who cannot afford to face any disruptions in business. Even if they do, they want to have minimum impact and return to normal as early as possible.
ISO 22301 provides complete framework and guidelines to develop, implement, maintain, and continually improve a business continuity management system. Disruption can come anytime and if organizations will have a backup plan in place to deal with, then the chances are higher for them to get less impacted.
Furthermore, ISO 22301 gives that backup plan for organizations where they can have confidence that a system is in place to deal with disruptions and disasters. In addition, this business continuity plan helps organizations to identify all potential threats within and outside business which can convert into disruptions and cause disasters.
