Safeguard Your Organization with PS-Prep

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) established a voluntary private sector preparedness accreditation and certification program called PS-Prep. Designed to enhance preparedness and give private sector entities the ability to safeguard their organizations against all-hazards, PS-Prep includes standards that equip decision-makers with best practices to improve their organizations’ abilities to maintain operations leading up to, and after, an emergency or disaster.

Recently, DHS announced changes to its list of adopted standards that serve as PS-Prep’s foundation. The most widely used and only international standard recognized is ISO 22301, which replaces BS-25999-2.

This opens the door for global organizations to work under one rule and apply for a PS-Prep accreditation stamp where applicable without the need to repeat the full assessment cycle.

The PS-Prep Program is in full swing and organizations that wish to make a positive statement about their state of preparedness and compliance to the standards can do so under the global guidelines that have always been followed under ISO 22301.

Join us for a complimentary webinar as experts in the field of PS-Prep development, accreditation and assessment come together to discuss the program and answer questions on the assessment and certification process.

Attendees will learn:

  • The history of PS-Prep
  • The assessment process
  • Self-declaration protocol for small business
  • The business and societal benefits
  • Case study and comments from an ISO 22301 certified organization
