What is BS ISO/IEC 27031:2011?
BS ISO/IEC 27031 gives best-practice guidelines for information and communication technology (ICT) to ensure business continuity. Since most processes in an organization depend on ICT, disruptions to these systems can lead to huge risks and damage the company’s reputation. Security breaches, such as system intrusions or malware infections, are two examples of inefficient ICT that can have a serious impact on business-critical functions. By incorporating these guidelines, organizations can improve their management operations, planning processes, data processing and data transmission, while keeping critical documents safe.
How does it work?
BS ISO/IEC 27031outlines systematic processes to prevent, predict and manage disruptive ICT incidents that can have an impact on business continuity. One of the recommendations includes the Plan-Do-Check-Act cyclical steps as part of the management system. This supports an organization’s continuity by making sure its ICT services are resilient and can be recovered to pre-determined levels within agreed timescales.
