Course Introduction

Within the Business Continuity Management Systems, organisations with robust and sound continuity programs in place realized several benefits, such as survival and innovation, as they were able to continue or pivot their business activity compared to many that were unprepared to handle the crisis. Efficient Business Continuity Management Systems (BCMS) are not a choice for organisations. They are a primary condition for achieving good governance, an effort to protect the value of the organisation, and an obligation towards the employees, customers, business partners, shareholders, and stakeholders.


ISO, 22301:2019 sets the requirements for robust business continuity management systems that allow organisations to have an efficient response and recovery strategy, successfully treat their risks and outline the steps necessary to operate in the wake of sudden and severe changes. As the landscape of risks changes rapidly, preparedness and proactiveness have evolved to a strategic advantage for organisations and BCMS are the basis for designing and implementing a corporate shield against challenges.


This course will enable the attendees to review and improve their company’s existing continuity management system, enhance the risk management framework, and cultivate a resilient culture. The course will include case studies, references, practical examples, and questions.
