The latest business continuity news from around the world

EXIN, the certification institute, has launched a new Business Continuity Management (BCM) certification, based on ISO 22301. With this certification, professionals are accredited as being capable of dealing with disruptive incidents when they arise.

  • Operational and financial risk management related to business continuity;
  • Leading BCM awareness and support among all stakeholders for successful adoption;
  • Meeting customer demands and deliver as promised;
  • Reducing downtime and cost of recovery;

This new certification within the EXIN’s Governance & (Cyber) Security portfolio is presented worldwide through EXIN’s extensive partner network. The exam is initially available in English, while language localizations will follow depending on local market needs.

EXIN is also planning to develop higher level certifications for business continuity management.
