Business Continuity Management

Business continuity management or managing disruption-related risk is essential for the continuity of the business operations. Since the publication of the ISO 22301:2012 Societal security — Business continuity management systems — Requirements, many organisations are rethinking how to strengthen operational risk management and align risk frameworks with business continuity initiatives. This session will discuss that movement, sharing good practices and experiences from Continuity towards Resilience.
