ISO 22301
Consulting Overview

An organisation achieving ISO 22301 certification implies it has recovery and restoration capability for each outage scenario, be it technology, site, vendor, people/skill or any other dependency. We have a 7 phase approach that starts with understanding your business and continuity objectives. This is followed by Business Impact Analysis (BIA), and Risk Assessment (RA) to determine your minimum business continuity objectives.

Each of our ISO 22301 consulting assignment involves transfer of knowledge, skills, documented plans, and testing of each of those plans. We create two layer plans that includes restoration of minimum as well as full restoration.

We have implemented ISO 22301 for large Telecoms covering multiple locations, Financial Institutions, and Insurance Companies. Each of them are successfully ISO 22301 certified.

What makes us unique is our involvement in the engagement that ensures your business is capable of successful recovery. Our methodologies of understanding a business, business impact analysis, risk assessment, continuity strategies (focus on outage rather than events), individual restoration plans, Disaster Recovery Plans, rigorous testing, and zero defect ISO 22301 certification - each of these features contribute to a better return of your business continuity investment.
