The New Zealand and Australia standards groups has made available a new business continuity standard titled – “AS/NZS 5050: 2010 Business Continuity”.
According to Standards Australia:
“The Standard describes the application of the principles, framework and process for risk management, as set out in AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009, to disruption-related risk. Managing such risk effectively will help maintain continuity of an organization’s business . The approach has drawn on, but of necessity goes beyond, many of the concepts that in the past may have been described as ‘business continuity management’ or ‘BCM’.”
The standard can be purchased as a PDF or as a hard copy.
If applicable, please pass this information along to those business continuity and risk management team members in your organization, and, share your comments with this website’s business continuity community of readers.
