Chicago, IL – June 4, 2013. A record number of people registered for the live webinar "ISO 22301: The New Standard for Business Continuity Best Practice", more than doubling the previous record for attendance. The webinar helps organizations understand the new ISO 22301 international standard and how to implement it.
“The live event saw not only record attendance, but triple the number of questions from attendees, as well. This confirms that there is a great deal of interest in the new ISO 22301 standard and people are eager for expert information,” said Malcolm Hafner, MissionMode CEO.
ISO 22301 is the new international standard for Business Continuity Management. It provides organizations with a framework to manage risk and ensure that they can continue operations in any type of crisis.
The presenter was ISO 22301 expert John McGill, who was one of the first consultants to help an organization become ISO 22301 certified. He showed organizations what the ISO standard is, why it’s important, how to plan for certification, and what building a Business Continuity Management System entails.
