ISO 22301

Business Continuity

What is ISO 22301?

ISO 22301 is an internationally recognized Business Continuity Management Standard which enables an organisation to understand and prioritize the threats and risks to its operations and protect against disruptive incidents or disasters.
ISO 22301 mandates a particular set of controls that need to be in place for your business and is a practical demonstration of your commitment to incident management. It will give confidence to your customers, stakeholders, employees and other interested parties that you will provide continuity of products and services.

  • Enhanced protection of your business in the event of an incident or disaster, while reducing the risk of further losses.
  • Increase competitive advantage and enhance corporate reputation: ISO 22301is increasingly seen as a sign that a business can be trusted to cope with any eventuality.

Certification Process - We have a 100% success rate!

With MQF the certification process is not just about ticking the right boxes to get the certificate. The most important outcome is that you benefit as a business. We have in-depth experience in ISO 22301 systems across a range of business sectors, from software companies to charities.
MQF advise clients throughout the whole process. The time it takes to get certification will depend on the size and complexity of your organisation, but we will set a timetable from the outset. Having installed numerous ISO systems across a wide range of business sectors since 1991, we know how to manage the process to get you to certification within the right timescales for you.
We will design, document, and implement an Information Security Management System that meets all the requirements of ISO 22301, but more importantly enhances your business and works for you as a business tool.
Wherever possible we use or adapt existing systems to cause you minimum disruption, and where you do not currently conform to ISO 22301, we will work with you to find practical solutions.
As an integral part of our service we will help you choose the right UKAS accredited Certification Body for your business and will guide you through the whole certification process. Our work is not complete until you gain certification.
