Over the last few months, our staff has been observing an interesting newsletter published by a business continuity planning services firm in South Africa. The firm is called ContinuitySA and represents the increasing presence that business continuity planning, disaster preparedness and organizational resilience is already playing in South Africa —- as well as the importance that continuity and compliance issues hold in the global village where so many of our companies serve their targeted markets.
Our staff suggests including this newsletter as part of the suggested reading library for your in-house disaster preparedness and recovery planning teams who may be considering compliance or certification to the new ISO 22301 standard.
In particular, this Q3 newsletter issue contains an interesting article, written by Eugene Taylor, MBCI, entitled, “ISO 22301 vs. BS 25999: BEWARE THE MYTH!”
In many ways, this article brings Taylor’s observations from South Africa into the perspective of the same or similar observations any other BC/DR practitioner would share …no matter where he/she may be located around the globe.
Click here to view the free “Chronicles” newsletter in its entirety. And, be sure to read Taylor’s insights into the comparison of ISO 22301 vs. BS 25999.
As always, we welcome your thoughts and comments …thank you.
