About ISO 22301
ISO/IEC 22301 Business Continuity Management helps organizations understand and prioritize the threats to business with the international standard for business continuity. ISO/IEC 22301 specifies the requirements for a management system to protect against, reduce the likelihood of, and ensure your business recovers from disruptive incidents.
ISO/IEC 22301 is an internationally recognized business continuity management standard. The standard provides a best-practice framework, ongoing governance, and good management of a business continuity program.
The benefits of ISO 22301 certification can be summarized as follows:
- Demonstrate resilience to customers, suppliers, and stakeholders
- Identify and manage current and future threats to your business
- Take a proactive approach to minimizing the impact of incidents
- Keep critical functions up and running during times of crises
- Minimize downtime during incidents and improve recovery time
ISO/IEC 22301 Certification Process
We make the certification process simple. After we have received your application, we appoint a client success manager who will guide you and your business through the following steps:
- Gap analysis
This is an optional pre-assessment service where we take a closer look at your existing business continuity management system and compare it with ISO/IEC 22301 requirements. This helps identify areas that need more work before we carry out a formal assessment, saving you time and money.
- Formal assessment
This happens in two stages. First, we review your current business continuity management system against an ISO/IEC 22301 checklist. We will share the details of our findings with you within your Continuum GRC portal, so that if we find gaps, you can close them.Next, if all the requirements are in place, we’ll assess the implementation of the procedures and controls within your organization to make sure that they are working effectively as required for certification of ISO/IEC 22301.
When you have passed the formal assessment, you will receive an ISO/IEC 22301 certificate, which is valid for three years. Your client success manager will stay in touch during this time, helping to ensure your system doesn’t just remain compliant, but that it continually improves.You’ll be able to access all the information related to your certification within your Continuum GRC SaaS, which is the first and only FedRAMP Authorized assessment solution in the world. Available 24/7, you can view essential information, such as your next 12 months of visit dates, audit reports, and certificates to support you with managing your Lazarus Alliance assessments and promoting your success.
