ASIS to replace two legacy business continuity standards

In June, ASIS will release a new ANSI Standard, Security and Resilience in Organizations and Their Supply Chains (ORM.1), which provides a systematic approach to managing risk related to an organization's operations and its supply chain.

The new standard will replace two legacy standards: Organizational Resilience: Security, Preparedness, and Continuity Management Systems (SPC.1) and Business Continuity Management Systems (BCM).

The ORM.1 standard will unify the approaches in both these standards under a risk-based framework. As a result, the SPC.1 and BCM will no longer be available. 

All standards available from ASIS can be seen here.
