Evaluating/Applying Relevant BCM Standards: 
Which is the Best One to Follow?

Written by  Frank Perlmutter Tuesday, 06 August 2013 15:48

frank perlmutterFor all the efforts taken to adhere to business continuity standards, how do you evaluate which standard is the best one for your needs? Is ISO 22301 or another single standard really the best one to follow, and where do you turn if you discover it is not?

For example: Which standards are most heavily focused on business and support component recovery? Which are tops for emergency response and crisis management? And which provide the best cross-section of coverage from program organization, management, and training to emergency response and emergency facilities, to business recovery, testing, and maintenance?

Discover the methodology, experience, and outcomes of one company’s detailed investigation into more than 15 major industry standards, best practices, and frameworks. Learn practical guidelines on where you might concentrate your focus—including program content as well as program policies and procedures. During this session, you will compare multiple major standards, identify the focus and strengths in each, and uncover strategies for addressing potential gaps relating to your specific business continuity needs.
