Business continuity management webinar series
A growing body of legislation and the current cyber threat landscape require businesses to ensure continuance of critical functions in the event of a disaster. Business leaders are more aware of the risks of cyber attacks and the importance of being able to respond to and recover from them.
Business continuity management (BCM) involves managing risks to ensure that mission-critical functions continue at an acceptable level of service, even in the event of a major disruption. To achieve effective BCM, implementing a business continuity management system (BCMS) is essential.
This webinar series focuses on providing a comprehensive introduction to BCM, and the key aspects involved in implementing a BCMS according to best-practice guidance contained in ISO 22301.
