Security Executive Council survey looks at which business continuity standard is the most popular

A recent poll by the Security Executive Council set out to discover which business continuity standards are being used when organizations are developing their business continuity programs.

The results show that ISO 22301 was used most often. 34 percent of poll respondents use this standard to benchmark against. However, surprisingly 30 percent stated that they do not benchmark their business continuity program against any standard.

The other standards in use are:

  • NFPA 1600 12 percent
  • ISO/IEC 27001 8 percent
  • BS 25999 6 percent
  • ISO/PAS 22399 4 percent
  • Other 6 percent

The ‘Other’ category included write-in votes for other business continuity related standards, the most popular being CSA Z1600, HB 221/292, and NIST 800-53.
