British Standards Institution, BS 25999, Standard for Business Continuity Management.
BS 25999 is intended for those responsible for "business operations and the continuity of such operations" (from chief executives through all levels of the organization itself).
The BS 25999 series includes two standards:
- BS 25999-1:2006 Code of Practice for BCM: provides a basis for understanding, developing and implementing business continuity within an organization; provides confidence in B2B and B2C relationships.
- BS 25999-2:2006 A Specification for BCM: specifies the requirements for "establishing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented BCM system within the context of an organization’s overall business risks," and for the implementation of continuity controls customized to the needs of specific organization.
