, the global provider of cyber security and business continuity management solutions, has launched two new consultancy services for SMEs. Designed to help organisations get to grips with implementing a business continuity management system (BCMS) aligned to ISO22301, the ISO22301 Health Check and FastTrack™ ISO22301 Consultancy services are built on the company’s extensive experience with management systems.
Alan Calder, Founder and Executive Chairman of IT Governance, says, “With the increase of successful cyber attacks, it is more important than ever before that organisations put a robust business continuity management system in place that will enable them to respond to and recover from data breaches.
“Cyber security alone is not enough – cyber resilience is the new business imperative. In this regard, the international business continuity management standard, ISO22301, plays an important role. It not only helps implement a company-wide BCM, but also ensures your organisation’s incident response plans are proven and up-to-date. The latter is critical for responding to the type of data breaches that recently forced Code Spaces and HotelHippo.com out of business.”
The ISO22301 Health Check is aimed at small- and medium-sized businesses with up to 500 employees and one physical location in the UK for the on-site visit and audit. It follows a risk-based approach for evaluating the effectiveness of an organisation’s business continuity plans in line with the international business continuity management standard, ISO22301. The service can be booked online at www.itgovernance.co.uk/shop/p-1630.aspx.
The FastTrack™ ISO22301 Consultancy is designed for organisations with 20 employees or fewer and a single location. It helps small businesses implement a robust BCMS and achieve certification to ISO22301 (subject to successful audit) in just four months. More information is available at
