Measurement matters: the role of metrics in ISO 22301

BSI has published a white paper that explores the role of metrics in the ISO 22301 business continuity standard and aims to help people understand the standard’s BCM measurement requirements.

This whitepaper clarifies the requirements around measurement in ISO 22301. In addition three BSI clients describe how they have approached these requirements.
