Implementing ISO 22301

Avalution Consulting has released a new white paper, ‘Implementing ISO 22301: The Business Continuity Management System Standard’, co-authored by Brian Zawada, Avalution’s director of consulting and the chairman and head of the US Delegation to ISO Technical Committee 223 (the group charged with developing ISO 22301), and Greg Marbais, a Consultant at Avalution.

The white paper breaks ISO 22301 down section by section, discussing what each clause means, the value it delivers, recommended approaches for alignment, and items to consider before moving forward.

Organizations with a strong understanding of management systems realize the most value from ISO 22301, so this white paper is organized into three sections:

  • Section 1: Introduction to ISO 22301
    Provides an overview of the standard, including its scope, audience, and value proposition.
  • Section 2: What is a Management System?
    Introduces key management system concepts that all business continuity professionals should understand before moving forward with the implementation of ISO 22301.
  • Section 3: Understanding ISO 22301’s Structure and Content
    Focuses solely on ISO 22301, introducing practical, pragmatic guidance to successfully implement the standard and take advantage of each element of the business continuity management system.

Obtain the white paper.
