PECB ISO/TS 22317 – Business Impact Analysis

What is ISO 22317?

This international standard is a technical specification that provides detailed guidance on establishing, implementing, and maintaining a Business Impact Analysis (BIA) process. It does not suggest a uniform process for performing a Business Impact Analysis but assists the organisation in designing a BIA process that meets its requirements. Organisations cannot certify their BIA to ISO 22317; however, they can use it as guidance to implement a BIA process effectively. ISO 22317 is the first and the only standard which solely addresses the Business Impact Analysis. It is designed to complement ISO 22301 but can be used as a stand-alone standard. Business Impact Analysis processes aim to analyse the actual impact of a disruptive event on the organisation.

Why is Business Impact Analysis important for you?

Having the necessary knowledge to outline a detailed process for effectively performing the Business Impact Analysis will enable you to take your expertise further. As a certified ISO 22317 professional, you can help your organisation identify Business Continuity requirements essential to the organisation and its stakeholders. You will also be able to set a timeframe to restore the organisation after a disruptive event and determine the essentials for recovering the business after the disaster.
