All Teed's consultancy projects are aligned to appropriate international and British standards for BCM and ICT. If a client wishes to achieve certification to a standard, we will work with them to review existing systems, fill the 'gaps' and produce the correct documentation to the meet the requirements of the standard. We have successfully assisted clients in achieving ISO certification.
The principal standards we work with are the business continuity management standards, ISO 22301 & ISO 22313 which specify the requirements for setting up and managing an effective Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) and the standard for ICT readiness for business continuity (IRBC), ISO 273031, which links IT disaster recovery strategies to business continuity requirements.
ISO 22301 & ISO 22313
ISO 22301 and ISO 22313 are part of a suite of standards designed to achieve greater societal security.
With the arrival of these internationally recognised BCM standards, organisations will be able to adopt them to implement business continuity management systems (BCMS) at operating sites across different geographical regions and be assured that all are aligned to the same standard.
Independent BCMS Review
Teed’s consultants can conduct an independent review of an organisation’s BCMS in order to identify whether the necessary components are in place to satisfy the requirements of ISO 22301. This is in effect a ‘gap analysis’ aimed at providing the client with an accurate indication of their state of readiness for ISO 22301.
The analysis will highlight areas of the client’s BCMS that would need to be improved upon or developed in order to meet with the requirements and will be presented to the client in a Review Output Report.
Teed can assist the client with ‘filling the gaps’ of their BCMS and, irrespective of whether the client wishes to pursue a formal BSI assessment, the client can be assured that their BCMS will be in line with best practice.
Independent ICT Review
Teed can assist clients by ensuring their DR procedures and processes are aligned to to ISO 27031, the international standard for ICT readiness for business continuity (IRBC) by:
- Undertaking an independent review and audit of existing processes
- Identifying improvements to ensure satisfying standard’s criteria
- Validating with a DR test of strategies implemented during course of project
