This practical guide is written for people and organisations that are implementing a business continuity management system and certification in line with ISO 22301. The development of a BCMS requires commitment, time, resourcefulness and management support. This book will fully equip those new to business continuity management or to management systems with survival skills for the ups and downs of the journey. It is divided into four parts; the first two focus on the management system aspects and the remaining two look at the requirements of the standard and translate them into user-friendly guidance notes. Included are checklists to self assess progress and worksheets to assist with the development of a BCMS as the reader progresses through the handbook.
Hilary Estall has lengthy practical experience in auditing and implementing management systems. She is currently the only IRCA-registered BCMS Lead Auditor in the UK and has 'Specialist' membership status with the Business Continuity Institute (BCI). Hilary runs her own business continuity consultancy company Perpetual Solutions Limited.
'If you want to know more about ISO22301 this is the first (and perhaps only) book you need to read.'
Lyndon Bird, FBCI, Business Continuity Institute

'An essential read for anyone considering implementation or certification to ISO 22301:2012; practical and insightful.'

Customer Reviews.Add a review

This is a great beginner’s guide to the ISO 22301 management system. It is short and concise, with the intention of being referred to when required rather than read cover-to-cover. [...]

The book is divided into four parts. All parts are presented using the same helpful format: the purpose and objective, a description of key terms, useful checklists, top tips, action sheets to complete and conclude with a summary.
