Updated Good Practice Guidelines, recently issued by the Business Continuity Institute, offers practitioners and companies alike a significantly improved set of methodologies that are easier to follow and implement.

“Business continuity has grown considerably as a discipline, and the new guidelines reflect that,” says Tracey Linnell, general manager: Advisory Services at ContinuitySA. “Good Practice Guidelines 2013 goes beyond descriptive statements to offer practical ‘how-to’ advice in layman’s language. The guidelines will contribute to making business continuity measures much more effective.”

Linnell says the Good Practice Guidelines complement the International Standards Organisation standard for business continuity (ISO22301): following the guidelines will help companies ensure they comply with ISO22301.
