Continuity management means securing the core activities of an organization using predetermined models under normal circumstances, during disruptions, and in exceptional circumstances.
The importance of continuity management has grown steadily in recent years. Services are increasingly becoming digital, production methods are changing, and outsourcing is more common than ever before. The increased international uncertainty and the coronavirus pandemic have also demonstrated how important continuity management is.
The purpose of a continuity management system is to prepare the management measures required for operating during disruptions, to enable their use, and to maintain them. Continuity management comprises crisis management, continuity planning, and recovery planning.
It is advisable for organizations to implement a continuity management system that includes the necessary processes, their interactions, and documentation. Utilization of the ISO 22301 standard is recommended for the implementation. This makes it easier to identify the requirements and the management measures can be specified systematically.
