If you attended the DRJ Spring Conference at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando Florida, we hope that you stopped by booth 415 (more information in the exhibitors corner) and talked to FEA about Business Continuity and Physical Security. Maureen Roskoski also presented an ISO 22301 Certification Case Study Tuesday, March 28, 2017 10:45 – 11:45. If you missed the presentation or would like a copy, click here.
The ISO 22301 Certification Case Study presentation covered – Careful business continuity planning can minimize the impacts of a disruption, minimize corporate risk, and minimize productivity losses. So, why doesn’t everyone have a business continuity plan? Most organizations are familiar with emergency preparedness and have some documentation on site as far as what to do in case of an emergency. We all can evacuate our facilities, but what happens once we are all standing in the parking lot? The ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management Systems certification process can be an effective way to get the right business continuity plans in place. Through a case study example of Facility Engineering Associates’ (FEA) journey to ISO 22301 Certification, this presentation will highlight why a management system is an effective tool to implementing both incident response and business continuity plans.
