The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) has updated its international standard for implementing and maintaining a business continuity plan in the face of cyber attacks, natural disasters or supply chain issues.

The Geneva-based organisation says ISO 22301 helps companies develop a more effective response to a disaster and recover more quickly, reducing the impact on employees, products or the company’s bottom line.

Some of the improvements include a clearer structure and terminology to understand what is required, as well as updates to remain in line with other ISO management system standards.

ISO Group Convenor James Crask says the updates will reassure clients, suppliers, regulators and other stakeholders that companies are prepared for any disruption.
