Having an effective Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) based on ISO 22301 successfully helps organizations to build resilience and develop the capability to continue business during unexpected disruptions. But this can be tough to achieve in fast-paced environments where uncertainty and change is commonplace.
Here lies the greatest value of a BCMS. With its foundation in continuous improvement, the internal audit process ensures your organization consistently evaluates the framework to check that it is robust and applicable in crisis situations. Internal audits also help prepare for independent audits, such as those carried out by BSI. So, the better your internal audit, the better your BCMS. How ready are you to conduct a high-quality internal audit?
